Bitter Terrell Owens Buying His Own Hall Of Fame Jacket Is Your Play Of The Week So Far
In a perfect world, Terrell Owens would be in the NFL Hall of Fame, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition would come out every week, and I'd hold the record for WWE championships. Suck it, Edge!
But we don't live in anything close to a perfect world (plays Hail to the Chief). Sometimes you have to take your lumps and prepare for better days ahead -- which is exactly what Owens is not doing. Having failed to make it into the HOF last month, the former 49er/Eagle/Cowboy did the next best thing. According to reports, he purchased his own gold HOF jacket and had his statistics embroidered on the back.
That move is hilarious, sad and impressive, all at once -- just like his career. New York Daily News:
One very well placed source - only clue: he is a HOF player - recently saw Owens in Los Angeles and reported to the Daily News that Owens had a shopping bag next to him when they got together.
What was in the bag?
Owens told him it indeed was a custom made gold jacket. What made it so extra special?
“T.O. told me he had his career stats on the back of the jacket,” the HOFer told me. “Seriously.”
Here's the best part:
The source didn’t want Owens to take the jacket out of the bag because he just didn’t want to hear Owens going on and on about how he deserved to be in the Hall.
This is twice in a row now that Owens has failed to make the cut from 15 to 10 in HOF voting, and he's way beyond bitter. Although on Sunday night he finally managed to have a sense of humor about it.
