TO...Just Go Away

The Dallas Police Department say Terrell Owens attempted suicide last night by taking an overdose of prescription pain pills.

A companion told officers that Owens last week filled a prescription for 40 pain pills, but had only taken five of the pills up to yesterday. Owens told police that he had taken the balance of the pills last night.

Owens' posee disputes the police report. They say that it was in fact an allergic reaction to a combination of pain medication and nutritional supplements.

UPDATE: Owens blamed a combination of hydrocodone, a generic form of Vicodin, with all-natural supplements for making him ill.

Can anyone say Dennis Rodman? Sounds mighty similar. Therapy seem like the next logical step.

TO's been bad news everywhere he's been -- Cowboys, Eagles, 49ers. All the talent in the world but lacking the mental capacity and maturity to deal with his gifts and associated spotlight. If I actually liked him, I'd feel sorry.
