It was a pleasure to see the Giants put it to “America’s Team” on Sunday…and in Dallas, too.
And we New York fans were especially gratified to see Cowboys owner Jerry Jones standing miserably on the sidelines as his team went down to defeat. And did you see those Fox football analysts after the game– Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, and ol’ helmet-head, Jimmy Johnson. They looked as if their mothers had just died. Each one had predicted a Cowboy victory.
In the locker room, Dallas offensive tackle Flozell Adams reportedly went into a rage, screaming curses at reporters. Too much! But, hey what’s with that name, Flozell? Sounds like one of those cholesterol drugs or something you take for constipation.
And then there was T.O.
In the pantheon of gifted but nutty pro football wide receivers, Terrell Owens ranks numero uno. This guy is a real banana.
He’s not known for touting his quarterbacks. On the contrary, his history shows he’s usually quite comfortable throwing them under the bus when things don’t go well. Just ask Donovan McNab and Jeff Garcia.
But after Sunday’s satisfying game, T.O. surprised us with an entertaining defense of Dallas QB Tony Romo, who didn’t play all that badly but took criticism for hopping over to Mexico with his gal pal, Jessica Simpson during the team’ bye week.
Owens’ “crybaby”:http://youtube.com/watch?v=mow7gXW0uog routine reminded us of Hillary Clinton’s little cry after she lost the Iowa caucuses. Bad form!
There’s no crying in football or politics, especially when you lose.
