It's just a game.
A day after the Cowboys' 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers, Tony Romo and his teammates took a visit to the Children's Medical Center of Dallas to spread some holiday cheer and offer smiles to the kids. The Cowboys are aiming for the playoffs, but all of that took a backseat as the players handed out presents to the children who have to spend the holiday in the hospital.
Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram was there to document the scene:

It's events like this that keep things in perspective. Romo was able to shake off a bad loss and put a smile on the faces of some of the children, and that means more than any touchdown pass he's ever thrown.
Thanks to Clarence Hill for the find.
