Terrell Owens, Still a Douchebag

So, here was some exciting front page ESPN.com news today: T.O. found a rental home in Buffalo. Renting: Smart choice for Owens, who has a tendency to move from city-to-city quite frequently. According to the article, the home is 4,500 square feet and was leased to him by area real estate agent Maureen Flavin, who even has her own webpage. T.O. seemed happy, thanking those, via Twitter, who helped him with his search.

Then, this afternoon, he tweeted this:

W/THE RELEASE OF MY POTENTIAL RENTAL @ 34 WOODTHRUSH TR, I WILL NOT B RENTING DUE 2 THE UNPROFESSIONALISM OF MAUREEN FLAVIN!!

That’s right: Owens publicly bashed the real estate agent in front of his 40,000 Twitter followers, and everyone else who reads his tweets daily, including ESPN, AP, etc, with no explanation whatsoever. Mature, as usual. And quite professional. Not to mention the irony of Owens calling anyone else “unprofessional.”

But this is the beauty of Twitter: It really is an uncensored look into the personality of athletes. (Except for Chris Cooley’s, which is written by Tanner.) And T.O. is actually a piece of shit with awful grammar, who yells in ALL CAPS and stomps around the room with his fingers in his ears when he’s upset. He must be a joy to work with. On any level.

    So did you forget to add the “Anger” tag, or does this fall just short of that designation?

    Doesn’t the “Die” tag automatically require the “Anger” tag though?

    Jamie, I don’t write Chris’s Twitter. I just set it up for him…

    I wrote this post. I’m Chris. And I thought Cooley said publicly that you do the Twitter. My apologies if that’s not accurate.

    Sorry guys. Reading and commenting from the iPhone. Chris may have mentioned that in the beginning but has been doing it on his own for a while now. If I post on there it starts with TC.

    Really looking forward to the throw off.

    Tanner, if you can’t throw 50-plus yards (thus pulling your bro’s dead weight), then the brothers Cooley are in trouble.

    Judging by the form he showed the other day, 40 would be a longshot.

    Form is thrown out the window when you’re playing with seven year olds…

    Just b/c they’re 7 doesn’t mean you shotput the ball. But, yeah, if Chris can actually throw like a man, we’re in trouble.
