The reverse Yoko Romo
Kim Kardashian (obviously) wants the Texans to beat Miles Austin and his Boys
If the fate of the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's big game wasn't already sealed, Kim Kardashian has stepped in to ensure their uncertain defeat. As the Jessica Simpson antithesis, Kardashian effectively damned the Cowboys in their matchup with the Houston Texans by making her dumping of Dallas wide receiver Miles Austin public just in time for Sunday's game.
In contrast to Simpson, who was dubbed Yoko Romo by enraged Cowboys fans, Kardashian has been something of a good luck charm for her athlete boyfriends. It wasn't until she dumped Reggie Bush that his inappropriate behavior at USC was revealed and his Heisman was forfeited. We're not saying it's causation, we're just saying it's statistics.
And after Kim ended things with Ray J, he had to resort to reality dating — on Vh1. Could one fall farther?
Austin — the Cowboys' No. 1 receiver — and Kardashian have actually apparently been split up for a little while, but she couldn't have picked a better week to let everyone know (through unnamed friends) that she was the one who ended their relationship.
As a Texans fan, I couldn't be more pleased. So thank you, oh boring-est of Kardashians, for your obvious support. And for teaching us there's no scandal enough makeup can't cover.
