As the TV ad playfully teases us, “Only a select few have earned the right to wear authentic NFL gear.”
The product pitch is that it’s not true. Anyone can order NFL stuff from the league’s web shop.
Anyone, it seems, including Thomas Randolph, 62, who showed up for his death sentence hearing in a Las Vegas courtroom Friday wearing a Tony Romo throwback jersey.

Randolph faces a sentence of from 20 years to death in the 2008 murders of his sixth wife and the hit man that Randolph hired to kill her.
As Ferrara reported on Twitter, Randolph’s son Justus also took the witness stand Friday and wore a Dallas Cowboys-themed tie “as an act of solidarity.”
