Tire-changing good Samaritan in Irving turned out to be Tony Romo
Despite a busted chin and long flight from Cleveland, the Cowboys quarterback lent a hand to stranded motorists on his drive home.

An email sent to Randy Galloway detailed a surprise encounter for two Cowboys fans on Sunday night. As Bill and Sherry White were driving down MacArthur Boulevard, a tire blew on their car. As Mr. White was attempting to replace the tire, he had difficulty with a failing jack.
Pulling up to help was a young man with a large white bandage on his chin. Mrs. White soon realized the good Samaritan was Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who received stitches after a pop to the face in his away game earlier that day against the Cleveland Browns. Mrs. White admitted to squealing something like a school girl when she found out, while Mr. White asked simply that Romo not tell him the game result. He had it Tivo'd at home.
