T.O...Sounds Like a Steroid In Itself

As the title may point out, Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver Terrell Owens has been getting a little heated about the extra drug tests being requested by him. Now, whether he was put on the 'careful-watch' list due to the fact that he missed an earlier screening or that he has roughly 2% body fat is something that only NFL officials truly know but Owens needs to calm down.

The outspoken, hot-headed receiver said "The thing is they had already put in the reasonable cause testing program, which I didn't want to do." "I didn't want to be a part of that." Well, NO SHIT! Who in their right mind WANTS to be on the probable cause list of steroid use? Frankly, out of all of the professional athletes in our country (not just the NFL) I believe Owens should be focused on the most.

There are the obvious cases of Jose Conseco, Barry Bonds and the huge baseball 'steroid era' but they have already been outed. There shameful cheating and fake performances have already been put to shame both publicly and within their personal realm. I mean for Christ sake, Barry Bonds is close to having an asterisk(*) bestowed upon his name in the Hall of Fame if they decide to allow him in.

So, now I think they need to begin to focus on other stars of other major sports which they are rightfully doing. Guess you should have stopped staring in the mirror, slobbering over your toned pecs and answered your phone when someone along the lines of hmmm.....ROGER GOODELL pops up on your caller I.D. But hey, that's just what I would have done.

"It's just ridiculous," Owens said. "I take pride in what I do. I take pride in keeping myself healthy. ... I know what I put in my body." So, if he knows what he puts in his body he must have known that he was going to overdose last year when he took those uncalled for amount of pills. A little off topic but I had to point out that obvious remark of stupidity. Any other way you want to contradict yourself Mister Owens?

It has always bugged me that even though more players use steroids in baseball, it is always the talk of the media as if football players never use them. Well football does have a drug problem, and I guess media markets like ESPN are too scared to say this about their precious National Football League.
