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.
