From the “Why hasn’t this happened already?” department comes news of Cowboys wide receiver/narcissistic superfreak Terrell Owens‘ personal blog on YARDBARKER, making him the latest professional athlete to link up with the user-generated web site. If T.O.’s first entry is any indication, we’re going to see a whole lot of discussion whenever he writes anything.
For the record, Owens’ first post consisted of three sentences, with a total of 50 words (punctuation not included), all directed as a subtle shot toward former Vikings wideout-turned-ESPN announcer and commentator Cris Carter. Of course, Carter started the whole virtual slap-fight himself when he said, when asked what he’d do with Owens, that he’d “take one bullet and put it right in (him). Bam!”
That sounds like a legitimate beef to us, and Owens tactfully — or in what seems to be a tactful manner — declined to order a jihad on Cris, instead trying to subtly turn the tables on the comment. Of course, that hasn’t kept the commentators from obliterating T.O. in the post’s threads, with a predominantly Philadelphia crowd calling out Owens’ entire career within the parameters of the Carter comment.
