While Sunday night’s game between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys was a very important victory for the Cowboys and their playoff chances, I’m pretty sure the only thing any of us really cared about was the relationship between Tony Romo, Jason Witten, and Terrell Owens. It was as though the psyche of the American public was soothed when we found out after their win that the trio were just fine, and that any drama amongst them was nothing more than the evil Ed Werder spreading his lies.
Of course the perfect occasion for Romo, Witten, and Owens along with the rest of their teammates to put all of this ugliness behind them was on Monday night. While T.O.’s former team the Eagles were beating the Browns to keep their playoff hopes alive, Owens and his teammates were gathering together to celebrate Terrell’s birthday. Everybody was there, from celebrities to all of Owens’ teammates and even his coach Wade Phillips. Still, there were two no-shows whose absence did not go unnoticed.
From the FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM:
Among the celebrities in attendance were singer Solange Knowles, comedian Guy Torrey — who served as the master of ceremonies for the live auction — actress Jill Marie Jones and actor Carl Payne. Actor Will Smith sent a special birthday message, and rapper Ludacris was expected to perform at midnight. Owens was given the official key to the city of Dallas by city officials.
However, considering the events of the last week — when Owens was involved in a controversy with tight end Jason Witten and quarterback Tony Romo, the headliners Monday night were his teammates and coaches. Romo, who is suffering from a back injury sustained against the Giants, was a no-show at press time, along with Witten, who is also nursing injuries.
Could it be that Ed Werder was telling us the truth the entire time!? Can American survive this tragedy!?
When asked why neither Romo or Witten were in attendance, Owens was quick to put the fire out and said that he’s sure Tony and Jason would have liked to come to the party, but that Evil Ed Werder probably stole their invitations right out of their mailboxes. I believe his exact words were “Ed Werder won’t stop until he’s destroyed everything in my life that’s important to me!”
Though I suppose I could be making that up, but hey, if Ed Werder can do it why the hell can’t I, right?
