TO Can't Go Quietly

Terrell Owens walked radio row in Minneapolis like a rock star. He strolled from interview to interview like the hall of famer he was about to become.  Why not, Owens career statistics prove that he belongs in the hall.  He caught 1,078 passes for nearly 16,000 yards and 153 touchdowns.  He is among the greats, no doubt about it.

Unfortunately, like many of the greats before him, he also comes with an undeniable ego.  Owens announced a few weeks ago that he would not attend his own hall of fame induction ceremony citing that he wanted to spend his most memorable day, the day the HE campaigned for, elsewhere.

Now we know why he doesn’t want to be in Canton, he can’t walk away.

Owens is still showing off his chiseled physique and now we get to witness him running a 4.43 and a 4.44 40-yard dash.  Owens believes that he still can play. 

The game itself can be cruel when you conquer it.  You are hoisted upon the shoulders of many and media and fans alike can’t get enough of you. But once you can no longer run out of that tunnel, life is simply too quiet, and I can only assume that’s what TO can’t live with……himself.
