Tony Romo Saves the Day!

I guess Tony Romo never gets, um, tired of being the good guy.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback was on his way back from the airport on Sept. 7, fresh from his team's win against the Cleveland Browns, when he came across a couple stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire.

"All of a sudden I hear a voice say, 'Do you need help?'" Sharon White, 53, told People.com.

Grateful for the assist, the couple let Tony aid them in getting their tire inflated -- then they realized who he was.

"At that point, I looked at him and thought, 'Dang, he looks familiar,'" Sharon said. "I go, 'You know what? You look like Tony Romo.' He looked down and just gave me that boyish smile he's got. Then he said, 'That's because I am.'"

Obviously a football fan, Sharon was a tad excited. 

"I just screamed as loud as I could," she said. "Then I grabbed him and hugged him."

Her husband Bill, 61, who had missed Tony's big game and had recorded it at home, asked Jessica Simpson's man what had happened to his bandaged chin. When Tony started to tell him, "I stopped him and said, 'Don't tell me! I don't want to know!" the man said.

 Tony went on his way after that, but the couple are extremely grateful -- even if they did forget to thank him.

"I'd thank [Tony] so much for stopping," Sharon says, if she had the chance to send him a message. "I love him to death, he's a great guy. And I hope I didn't bust his eardrum!"

Awww, Jessica's got herself another good guy. I could so see Nick Lachey stopping to help someone, too. But John Mayer? Not so much.
