You Just Hate To See This

In the very likely event that you don't get the NFL Network and/or don't watch ESPN unless forced to, you might have missed the news out of Carolina that the Cowboys lost Terrell Owens tonight to a high ankle sprain -- a remarkably similar injury to the one that kept him out of two out of three Eagles playoff games in the year that he decided to not destroy the franchise.

Especially as an Eagles fan, it's sad to see TO get hurt just before the playoffs. Combine this with the loss of starting center and Albert Haynesworth dance floor Andre Gurode, QB Tony Romo's thumb woes (which we hear is entirely the fault of girlfriend Jessica Simpson, as Romo is said to use the thumb to bring her to constant climax, and therefore spare himself from the shame of conversation), the suspension of Roy Williams for continuing to break the rule that they made for him, and the failure of cocktease WR Terry Glenn to get back on the field... well, it just makes you sad, really, to see a team have a great year (the 'Boys 13 wins this year is a franchise high), then start to crumble at the end.

This one, on the other hand, is just plain funny. It's like someone just told him a joke or something. And it allows us all to see him smile, and we all just to love to see him smile. Especially in moments like this. Warms the heart and soul.

And the video of the play? Well, that's a whole 'nother kettle of fish. On the one hand, you get to see him wrench it in real time, which is nice.



But on the other, he gets up afterwards, rather than ride off on a cart that bursts into flames, killing all involved. I'm not asking for much, really.

Oh, yes! Embrace the hate. People say Eagle fans are classless because we openly celebrate the injuries of our enemies. I say, "Fuck your mother in the ear, cock-breath."
