It looks like Carrie Underwood is joining the ranks of the football widows club! The American Idol winner was recently told by her beau, Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo, that he needed a break from September to January 2008 in order to focus on his game! “Tony loves Carrie, but football is the No. 1 priority in his life right now,” says a source.
Could it be because the San Diego native, 27, was razzed last year for not being on the ball after falling for Carrie? The two met when she performed the “Star-Spangled Banner” during the Cowboys Thanksgiving game in 2006, but he called things off in February. After Carrie was linked with actor Jesse Metcalfe and singer Oli-T., Tony won her back. This time, Tony’d better have a ring ready, warns a source!
