Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

I've thought about it and decided that it all had to be a nightmare. All I remember are fleeting images: Jessica Simpson. Pink jersey. Multiple sacks of Tony Romo. Terrell Owens asking for Simpson's phone number. Press conference. Yoko Ono. Jerry Jones' face melting like the Nazi in Raiders of the Los Ark. Ah!

After a media firestorm was created with his comments about Tony Romo's girlfriend, Jessica Simpson, being a distraction, Terrell Owens said he was joking and that he's sorry. "I tried to get [Romo] to call her so I can explain to her that she doesn't really know me and that I can be funny," Owens said. "And that everything I say, the media will take it and run with it. It's not a big deal. I will try to rectify the situation between her and I."

Before Cowboys practice on Wednesday afternoon, Owens said Simpson was a problem for Romo. "Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite in this locker room or in Texas Stadium," Owens said. "I think with everything that has happened, and obviously the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel like she's kind of taken his focus away."


Was Owens just joking as he claims, or did he realize that he'd put his foot in it once again and had to scramble to try and fix it? Please vote now.

Anyway, The Boys Blog had a more interesting take than Owens', and it came two days earlier.
