Nothing lasts forever, ya know? So, “November Rain” and professional athletes have at least that in common. According to Bleacher Report, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is hanging up his jersey after 15 years to pursue a broadcasting career.

Tony Romo, who was undrafted, became the starting quarterback for “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys.

In the span of fifteen years, Tony Romo became the franchise player and face of the Dallas Cowboys. He also dated Jessica Simpson, so all in all, he had a pretty killer career for a dude who didn’t even get drafted.

But, at long last, he’s retiring from the game of professional football…

According to Bleacher Report, Romo, a four-time Pro Bowler, holds the Cowboys record for passing, with 34,183 yards. He also threw for 248 touchdowns.

Although he’s probably going to miss it…

During a press conference in November, Romo told the New York Times that it was tough to watch rookie Dak Prescott become the new leader of the Cowboys while he sat out. “If you think for a second I don’t want to be out there, then you probably never felt the pure ecstasy of competing and winning,” said Romo. “That hasn’t left me. In fact, it may burn now more than ever.”

… He’s looking forward to a career in broadcasting.

I’m not sobbing uncontrollably, my eyes are sweating. No, YOU’RE a baby!

This Mexican Dude Is The First Person To Ever Beat Every Nintendo Video Game

Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk / Facebook

Bleeding Cool reports that Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk, or as he’s known on Twitch, The Mexican Runner has “set the bar for every old-school NES collector and gamer.” Delgado Kusielczuk has beat every game ever put out for the Nintendo Entertainment System. All 714 games. The best part? He recorded video footage of ALL OF IT.

Here’s how Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk was dubbed The Mexican Runner

According to Unocero, The Mexican Runner “bears that name because he started doing streams of speedruns (sessions to finish the games as fast as possible) in a small community that is dedicated to this field of video games.” Finish as quickly as possible?

It all started as a joke when a friend told him  he should give it a try…

When his friend told him he should try to beat every Nintendo game, he had to think about it for a second. But, then decided to take on that monster-of-a-challenge like the champion he is. Kusielczuk! Kusielczuk! Kusielczuk!

But, then he actually did it — this dude beat every single NES game!

He crushed all 714 games. To give you an idea of how hard that is, try to remember if you’ve ever even beaten any NES game in your whole miserable life. You haven’t. Now, imagine how hard it would be if you did, and then multiply that by 714. What? Anyway, Bleeding Cool says “This is a feat that no other mass collector on the planet can actively claim with legitimacy, not even well-known NES enthusiasts like James Rolfe (AVGN) or Pat Contri (The NES Punk).”

He didn’t cheat or even use Game Genie

Kusielczuk beat every one of the 8-bit games in his NES library and he did it without using a single code — other than the code of honor that he lives by, which prohibits this player from living anyway except for straight up.

What’s next for “The Mexican Runner?”

I’m gonna see if he wants to help me take on that impossible underwater level from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” for NES. Then, we’ll probably go get froyo like a couple of bros, or maybe my new best friend will come up with something more badass for us to do. He’s pretty chill.

Check out his Twitch broadcast to witness this life-unlocking achievement for yourself:
