Terrell Owens is already an actor -- far as you know. Now, you can add to that burgeoning list of potential future professions "stand-up comedian." Because yesterday, round the time NFL commish Roger Goodell said he was partially lifting Adam "Pacman" Jones' suspension and allowing him to practice with the Cowboys, Owens was doing an interview with Dallas-based ABC Radio, promoting his charity work with the Alzheimer's Association. Which prompted this joke concerning Owens' new teammate and his propensity for making it rain: "I hope we can get him affected by [Alzheimer's] just a little bit so he can forget about those strip clubs." --Robert Wilonsky
