Following a 28-18 loss to the Washington Redskins, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys are once again looking at a dour offseason, as fans start to legitimately wonder:

Should #8 be under center when 2013 rolls around?

Hey, at least Tony Romo goes home to Candice Crawford.

Romo tossed a trio of interceptions last night, admitting he "let the team down" and adding to his woeful resume in critical games.

The signal-caller is 1-3 in the playoffs and has now concluded three seasons (2008, 2011, 2012) with brutal losses to division foes.

Torii Hunter made news this offseason when he signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Tigers.

But the veteran outfielder, one of the most thoughtful and respected players in Major League Baseball, has now made different kind of headlines.

Torii Hunter Press Conference

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Hunter expressed his feelings about ever playing with a gay teammate.

"For me, as a Christian... I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, it's not right," Hunter replied. "It will be difficult and uncomfortable."

Earlier this year, boxer Orlando Cruz came out of the closet - but no active team member has ever admitted he was gay.

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade conspicuously kicked Ramon Sessions in the groin the other night, and the NBA has kicked him to the curb for one game.

The All-Star has been suspended for today's matchup with Detroit.

Though not called by referees, the play (below) earned him a one-game suspension, which Wade was not pleased about, taking to Twitter to defend himself.

"I'm far from being a dirty player, + my intent was never 2 kick Ramon Sessions ... I just reacted to the contact that I got from him," Wade said Thursday night.

Johnson, Avery

"The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future," principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said of the decision.
