DALY: Owens still has bridges to burn
Question of the Day
The way he carries on, you have to wonder if Terrell Owens isn’t Jerry Lewis’ secret love child - never mind this lady in the news.
The Cowboys, in case you’ve been living in a bunker somewhere, tired of Owens’ act and cut him the other day. For those hoping he’d be banished to the CFL… well, almost. His new team, the Bills, has a home game in Toronto next season.
Hey, maybe T.O. will write a children’s book about his Buffalo experiences, a sequel to his Pulitzer Prize-winning “Little T Learns to Share.” He could call it “Little T Learns to Shovel Snow.”
The fans up there must be thrilled. After 41 years of searching, the Bills have finally found a replacement for Elbert “Golden Wheels” Dubenion.
Asked if his club had any interest in Owens, 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan said, “We don’t close any doors.”
Earth to Scot: The last time T.O. was a 49er, he didn’t just burn bridges, he torched the Golden Gate. What, you want to see the Bay Bridge go up in flames, too?
Just think: In the last eight months, we’ve seen a guy with 527 homers (Manny Ramirez) and a guy with 139 touchdown catches (Owens) - both still quite productive - get dumped by their clubs.
Meanwhile, Brian Scalabrine continues to find gainful employment in the NBA.
Wildest Story of the Week (as reported by SportsBusiness Journal): New Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants to bring former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue into the organization as his vice chairman.
