Joe Nathan of Texas Rangers dresses like Tony Romo

When the Dallas Cowboys knocked off the New York Giants last week, it set in motion an ugly chain of events for one of Big Blue's more daring fans.

After Joe Nathan, a closer for the Texas Rangers, lost a wager on the game to teammate Mike Adams -- a Dallas fan -- he was forced to show up to Tuesday's batting practice dressed as Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Had Nathan won the wager, Adams would have been forced into Eli Manning garb, per MLB.com, but that's not how it went down.

Take a look the video. What's mildly terrifying is that Nathan looks the part -- entirely. He could pass for Romo from a distance: Good foot movement, reads defenders well -- and throws a nice deep ball, too.

Kyle Orton, watch your back.
