There's a New Star in Texas

As if we needed another reason to hate the Dallas Cowboys. Well, in any case, we've got one.

In breaking news, Terrell Owens appears to have signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

Owens was released on Tuesday by the rival Philadelphia Eagles; that same day, the Cowboys released Keyshawn Johnson, a move which now clears the way for T.O. to come in.

Everyone knows the risks that come with Owens, so I won't cover them here. I will note that I find it interesting that his two prior stops in the NFL were with two of the Cowboys' biggest rivals (Philadelphia and San Francisco). Perhaps his most famous prima-donna moment occurred in Texas Stadium as well, when he ran to midfield and spiked the ball on the Dallas Star twice after scoring touchdowns.

The second one is famous because of then Cowboys' Safety George Teague's reaction.

You have to think that with Owens' track record in the locker room, a lot of his teammates might want to do the same thing to him before 2006 is done.

I'm sure that this isn't the last that we'll hear about this story...

Well, at least Michael Irvin will be happy now that his buddy is there, and Johnson is gone.

With the exception of a couple years under Barry Switzer, I've been a Cowboy fan practically since birth.

I am one no longer.
