I take it upon myself to talk about this because it is Cowboys related. I’m sure you have all seen the letter T.O. taped to his locker. ESPN’s transcript read:
“Due to the magnitude of this week’s game and high volume of questions for the Original 81 about the other 81. I will be taking all questions immediately following Sunday’s game.
“Sincerely, (followed by Owens’ signature)
“p.s. Getcha Popcorn Ready.”
Considering that he wears a star on his helmet, you guys are going to be mad I said this, but I think this is a sign that TO may have turned the corner from adolescent idiot to grown man.
This is the move of a media savvy man who still craves the spotlight, but has figured out how to get it without compromising his ability on the field or his team. Could this have gotten any more coverage if TO would have done situps in front of Randy Moss’s locker?
And while 50 cameras were trained on TOs locker what was he doing? Practicing.
And if that wasn’t enough, there is this quote from the same ESPN article:
“I think he’s pretty focused. We don’t want to give them any bulletin-board material,” tight end Jason Witten said. “There’s enough said. We all know what the challenge is. … He’s staying focused. He’s anxious, excited about the challenge.”
Terrell Owens…leader. God help us!
