Terrell Owens Loves Kids!
At least, that's what Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver wants you to think as tries to ingratiate himself to a community more inclined to remember him as the dude who took a figurative dump on the Texas Stadium star during his days as a trouble-makin' Philadelphia Eagle. Says here on his Web site that in June, T.O. will host two youth football camps in the metroplex: one on June 7 and 8 at Birdville High School in North Richland Hills, and another June 9 and 10 at Duncanville High School. Kids from 7 to 17 will get tips from T.O. and other pro-ballers, current and former, but this part makes me giggle just a little: They'll also "will learn how to enhance their skills and make new friends"--and then try to humiliate their new friends in the media, after which they'll hold disingenuous press conferences in which they will claim to have been taken out of context. Kids, they grow up so fast. --Robert Wilonsky
