Sports musings of the day

Congratulations to the Dallas Cowboys on acquiring the locker room cancer known as Terrell Owens. I suppose if there’s an NFL coach that can handle Owens’ ego, it’s Bill Parcells, but I can’t see this working out over even the medium term.

Congratulations also to the Blue Devils on making it back to the Sweet 16; the only category of the contest where George Washington bested Duke was in the attractiveness of their cheerleading squad (admittedly a matchup in which the Blue Devils frequently falter).

Finally, after praising WRAL for their telecasting work the first two days of the tournament, I have to issue a major demerit to our CBS affiliate for not airing the first five game minutes (and possibly more) of the Florida/Wisconsin-Milwaukee matchup on one of the umpteen available digital channels, instead of making us all sit through the interminable foulfest at the end the Duke–GW contest.

They traded one cancer (Keyshawn) for another (TO). Though, TO is a much better receiver. I cannot wait for the possibilities. What will happen the first time Bledsoe underthrows TO by 10 yards? Where will TO spike the ball upon his first TD in Texas Stadium?


True, although Keyshawn wasn’t disruptive in Dallas—and he didn’t have that idiot Drew Rosenhaus as his mouthpiece.

I suppose the good news is that Rosenhaus could have a very healthy career as a manager in pro wrestling in a few years… he was getting heel heat from me during the press conference today. Look out Paul Heyman!


And the Bucs actually won a Super Bowl with Keyshawn.

The Owens contract is structured to encourage him to behave. He gets $8 million in year 2, and there’s no way anyone would give him an $8 mil bonus next year if he’s disruptive and gets cut.
