Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - Sunday Punch -

1. Tony Romo

By most ac­counts, for­mer Cow­boys quar­ter­back Tony Romo is a hit in his new job as CBS’ lead NFL color com­men­ta­tor. Romo is on TV, mak­ing big bucks, and, best of all, J.J. Watt isn’t try­ing to take his head off.

2. Kobe’s jer­seys

The Los An­ge­les Lak­ers an­nounced they would re­tire both the No. 8 and No. 24 jer­seys, which were worn by Kobe Bryant through­out his ca­reer. It’s a rare feat, no doubt. Just to sweeten the deal, the Lak­ers promised that Bryant’s jer­seys would hang nowhere near the re­tired jersey of Shaquille O’Neal.

3. Cleve­land In­di­ans

The In­di­ans’ win­ning streak reached 22 games, pass­ing that of the “Money­ball” Oak­land Ath­let­ics’ streak of 2002. One day, a movie can be made about this In­di­ans team. But Fran­cisco Lin­dor, Andrew Miller and Corey Klu­ber won’t be men­tioned in the script. In­stead, Brad Pitt will play a ge­nius gen­eral man­ager who takes all the credit.

4. Field mar­riage

Bishop Woods, a Mur­ray State de­fen­sive line­man, and his fi­ancée, Cailin My­ers, were mar­ried af­ter prac­tice Tues­day this week. The cer­e­mony was of­fi­ci­ated by Woods’ coach. No doubt foot­ball will be a big part of this mar­riage. Good luck, ma’am.
