T.O. O.D.?

Oh, swell.

DALLAS (AP) -- Flamboyant Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens tried to kill himself by overdosing on pain medication, even putting two more pills into his mouth after a friend intervened, according to a police report obtained Wednesday.

Suicides and attempted suicides by the rich and famous have always puzzled me. One would think that these people "have it all," when many times the reality is that they are lonely, depressed, or both. That may be the case with Owens, and it may explain his selfish "look at me" antics.

While his publicist is denying that Owens tried to take his own life, the police report states that he told paramedics that he was trying to hurt himself. I'll take the word of a paramedic over some toad publicist any day.

The alleged attempted suicide is not even the saddest part of this story. The saddest part of this story is that hundreds of "great football fans" in the Philadelphia area will be cheering this "good news." To them, T.O. is the enemy, and a lot of Eagles fans have probably wished him dead the second he left town for Dallas.

To them I say: Get over it. It's just football, and like him or not Terrell Owens is a human being.
