T.O. is a Saint!

Recently, a bunch of sports writers and bloggers came down on T.O. for not showing up for voluntary offseason conditioning with the Bills. Turns out the reason why he was gone was because he was accepting an award in Washington, D.C., attending the sixth annual National Alzheimer’s Gala. He’ll receive the Alzheimer’s Association’s first Young Champions Award on Wednesday night for raising awareness in the fight against the disease. Owens’ grandmother has Alzheimer’s.

I’m really tired of people lambasting, that’s right, I said lambasting, T.O. without researching anything that might absolve him of wrongdoing. The guy has been helping Alzheimer’s research for years, and nobody seems to care.

Also, the Bill’s strength and conditioning coach talked with T.O. about his workouts and they are on the same page. He said T.O. is one of the most fit guys in the league, and doesn’t even need to attend the workouts.

So learn the damn facts sports writers! T.O. is a goddamn saint!

Old NFL Ad

Thanks to Deadspin and Kissing Suzy Kolber for this Youtube clip of an old NFL ad. Not only does it feature the taboo of smoking on television, but also a politically incorrect indian (or is that Native American?). Either way, the promo clip is hilarious.
