T.O. to T.A.L.K.
T.O.'s supposed to talk in about five minutes, which is good, since coach Bill Parcells just said at his press conference: "When I find out what the hell is going on, you will know." There was quite the scene assembled at Owens' Deep Ellum condo about an hour ago: agent Drew Rosenhaus and former Cowboys and close friends Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin.
"I talked to T.O. a few minutes ago, and he told me he's really trying to get back on the field and that he caught some passes yesterday and when he got home his hand really hurt," said Irvin. "And he mistakenly took a lot of supplements with the pain killers. Too many of them."
After that, Sanders walked out and was on the verge of addressing the group via press conference. But after searching each and every face among the press, Deion said to no one in particular, "Who all's here?" He then stepped aside from the microphones, took a deep breath and said, "I'm not doing this" before ducking back into T.O.'s condo. I know. Weird, huh? --Richie Whitt
