"I played a little safety, a little wide receiver and Romo was struggling at quarterback so I went in and threw him a touchdown pass," Payton said. "Aikman led his team on a 2-minute drive that ended up tying the game. After about a half an hour, the adults were ready to quit and the kids were screaming for more. But it was fun."
Fun, you say? Well, maybe not only that. NBC Sports points out that the game might have violated NFL Lockout rules, since coaches aren't supposed to be in contact with players. There's some leeway regarding exactly what kinds of contact are problematic, and the league probably isn't going to punish anyone for a little beach football game, but still - Mr. Payton, Mr. Romo, consider yourselves warned.
