Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens overcame a high ankle sprain to catch four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys 21-17 loss to the Giants Sunday, but the man who overcame great physical pain was in tears during the post-game press conference.
“That’s my quarterback,” a tearful Owens said. “To say we lost because of him [quarterback Tony Romo] … that’s not fair.”
In what appeared to be a Coors Light fake press conference commercials, an angry Cowboys fan shot back, “Who cares about fair? I didn’t get to cavort with Jessica on a beach in Mexico. I spent all week getting ready for the playoffs and you give me this? What crap.”
A tearful Owens continued, this time in doublespeak.
“We lost as a team … we lost as a team,” said Owens. “This loss hurts, this loss hurts because I know this team was dedicated and put in a lot of hard work to get where we are.”
As the jeering fan was escorted away by Texas Stadium security from the media only event, he was heard to say, “Where we are is headed back to Mexico to play with the pretty girls instead of back to Valley Ranch to prepare for the Green Bay Packers.”
The Packers are early seven-point favorites to beat the Giants, and the over/under is 1,032 on “frozen tundra” references by ESPN icon Chris Berman during next Sunday’s NFL Countdown broadcast.
