GONE YARD: Terrell Owens, Savior of Sport

Terrell Owens: Threat or menace? Every halfwit sportswriter worth his free-buffet pass has weighed in on the T.O. situation (short recap: T.O., one of the NFL's best receivers, is every stereotype of the jackass athlete, times 10--and the Philadelphia Eagles recently suspended him for the rest of the season.) The polls seem to be running about 993 to 1 against ol' Terrell. (Just wait till he comes to play in YOUR city.)

But while others see the T.O. debacle as a chance to vent thinly disguised racial screeds against the Arrogant Black Athlete, me...I see opportunity. A chance for Terrell Owens to become the Savior of American Sports As We Know It. How? Well, you gotta read this week's Gone Yard to find out. Here's a hint, tho--Pay Per Play.
