"So, like, I text messaged Terrell to wish him well and everything after his overdose thingy, and he never texts me back. No biggie, right? But now he says he never got it! Like, I'm so sure! It's incredible th ... oh wait, that's Ashley on the other line. Be back in a sec."
As if they had nothing better to argue about, Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb are feuding over a text message that Owens may or may not have received from his former Eagles' teammate. McNabb says he sent Owens' good tidings after T.O.'s trip to the hospital last week, which may or may not have been a suicide attempt. But Owens said he never got the message. Hilarity ensued.
"I think the message was sent," McNabb told the Associated Press. "If he read it or received it, then I think he would know."
"Look, I'm not trying to start anything," Owens said. "He's a smart guy. If he wanted my number, he could've gotten it."
We hear that the two of them will meet in some sort of football game this Sunday.
• You Go, Keyshawn . Do we really need another scandal in which former victims continue to appear out of the woodwork? Panthers' center Justin Hartwig says that he, too, was a victim of Albert Haynesworth's foot three years ago (the Titans' defensive tackle was suspended five games for stomping on Andre Gurode's head on Sunday). Hartwig says that Haynesworth kicked him in the chest during a training camp drill in 2003 when both played for the Titans. This, of course, prompted Panthers' receiver Keyshawn Johnson to pipe up: "I wouldn't want him on my team. That's just me. I don't condone it. I don't think it's cool. If somebody did that on this team when I was here, I'd tell (owner Jerry Richardson) the same thing, 'I don't want him on my team. I'm not going to play with a dude doing that on my team.' "
• Randy Moss Has His Finger On The Problem. It's the age-old question: If Randy Moss spouts off in the forest, does it make a sound? In his latest rambling manifesto, Moss told Fox Sports Radio that he wasn't concerned about the team's poor start because "it doesn't seem like nobody else is concerned." Ignoring his double negative, Moss continued "I mean, I don't really know what the feeling is. But I know the feeling is bad, so that's saying no one cares about what's going on around here." To which head coach Art Shell responded: "I don't worry about that. Maybe I'm naive, but I don't worry about that." Yeah, it's like a passenger on the Titanic complaining about the noise in the next stateroom.
