As usual, the entry list for the 2011 U.S. Open Championships includes a couple non-golfers. The 8,300-person list of people eligible to qualify for the event at Congressional Country Club in June came out on Friday, and one person on the list is someone people in Washington D.C. don't really like.

Yes, that man is the person pictured there. Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback and eternal laughingstock in this area, is one of the 8,300 people on the list, according to Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post. It's actually not a completely random coincidence here. Romo played in the qualifying for the U.S. Open in 2010, and was also in the Pro-Am for the 2009 AT&T National at Congressional. Still, it's Tony Romo. BOOOO. BOOO. BOOO.

Also, former Atlanta Braves star John Smoltz is on the list. Smoltz was involved in U.S. Open qualifying last year too, and it looks like he is coming back for more. I have no ill will for Smoltz, so we'll just note it and go from there.
