    When you're angry, it's natural to want to blow off some steam. Go for a run, listen to loud music, blow up washing machines filled with explosives...

    One Cowboys fan, obviously upset, enraged, disgruntled or a combination of the three after his favorite team lost to the Redskins Sunday, decided that the best way to express his displeasure was to fill a washing machine with explosives, drape a Tony Romo (now 1-6 in win-or-go-home games in his career) jersey over it and shoot at it until it, well, exploded. The shooter missed twice before finally hitting his intended target; no word on whether or not Romo himself provided lessons. 

    After the game, RGIII told Romo "[not to] listen to what anybody else is saying about you. You’re a great quarterback, man. And this game doesn’t mean anything.” Try telling that to this guy.

    But don't get too close. He likes shooting at washing machines.
