"THAT'S WHY YOU IRISH DANCE RIGHT THERE!" is one of the more unexpected sentences to hear Tony Romo shout during an NFL game.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, now a commentator for CBS, was on duty for last night's game between the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens.


Running back Alex Collins - who ran for 118 yards and also caught two passes for 30 yards - was one of the stars for the Ravens in the 40-0 win.

Collins came to the attention of Irish people who are not NFL fans recently for his love of Irish dancing. After helping a young Irish dancer who had been bullied, Collins took it up as a pastime. The 23-year-old believes it helps his footwork and conditioning.

During last night's game, Romo declared that he is nicknaming Collins 'The Irish Dancer'.
