Tony Romo's offseason to date has been more memorable than the back-to-back-to-back 8-8 finishes with the Cowboys. First, he got to watch the NCAA Final Four in Jerry Jones' box at AT&T Stadium (along with plenty of other very important people), and on Saturday he'll head to Washington, DC, to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

According to TheHill.com, Romo and his wife Candice will be sitting at the FOX News table, along with her brother (and actor) Chase Crawford, musicians Rick Springfield and Richard Marx, and Sir Patrick Stewart.

No word on if the dinner is taking place in 1987.

In addition to Romo, other current NFL players set to attend include Adrian Peterson, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, Kirk Cousins and Richard Sherman.

(Sherman might be at the best table at the whole dinner; he's sitting at the HuffPo table with Questlove, Kristen Bell and Anna kendrick. The only way this is better is Erin Andrews and Michael Crabtree are there.)

Former NFL player Michael Strahan will also be there, but Marcus Spears will not -- though we imagine he'll have some thoughts on the evening.
