O.K., so Terrell Owens arrived in Buffalo last night to begin his deliberate but inevitable process of destroying the team chemistry of the Bills along with the fragile psyche of team quarterback Trent Edwards.
Let's think about this. What do we know about T.O., I ask you? I mean for certain? I think we can all agree that, above all else, the man is an attention craver and a media whore. To T.O, a camera is like cocaine, and a microphone is akin to crack. So now, imagine you're Buffalo. What do you do to avoid the problems that have traveled with Owens from San Francisco to Philadelphia to Dallas? Oh, I don't know, I'm thinking that rather than feed the addict's addiction, I might try to keep everything on an even keel, on the downlow if you will. The last thing you want to do is throw gasoline on the fire, right?
What do the fine citizens of Buffalo do? They greet T.O. at the airport en masse, complete with team cheerleaders, a media horde, autograph hounds, and even some douche dressed up like a box of popcorn (Get ya popcorn ready. Get it?). And oh yeah, Mr. Owens also was presented with a key to the city. Gawd. And he hasn't even played a down yet.
I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out that, oh, say 6-weeks into the season, Edwards will sail a pass over T.O.'s head, Lee Evans (who is a much better receiver) will have more catches, and all hell will break loose in Buffalo.
Speaking of media whores and attention seeking a-holes, the QB from Kiln, Mississippi is having surgery this week to repair his interception throwing right wing. You may have heard of him, he's been on TV a time or two. Anywho, even though he's getting surgery there's no way he's planning a comeback. I know that because he said so.
But back to Buffalo fans. You guys really seem fired up about your new wide receiver. Well, good luck with that. Don't be surprised, though, if you find that key to the city stuck in Trent Edward's back sometime in mid-October.
