FREE TERRELL OWENS!

It’s been a rough week for the city of Chicago. In the aftermath of the Cubs’ chokejob down the stretch that cost Dusty "Toothpick" Baker a playoff berth and the White Sox’s typical underachieving season, Terrell Owens made the Chicago Bears cry a little…by doing sit-ups in the end zone.

The Bears’ players didn’t literally cry, of course, but reported whining and reported crying are all the same to me. As I’m sure all five of my loyal readers are aware, Owens, after scoring his sixth touchdown of the season, put the football between his knees, lied down, and did six sit-ups in the end zone. Reportedly, some of the Bears’ players were upset that Owens wasn’t flagged for a 15-yard excessive celebration penalty, and I can understand their beef to an extent. The celebration appeared to be pre-meditated, and because NFL rules prohibit such conduct on the field, the referees probably should’ve marched the ball back to Philly’s 15 yard line on the ensuing kickoff.

My issue with this has less to do with the Bears being upset than it does with the Excessive Celebration rule being instituted in the first place. A line has to be drawn to prevent taunting, but everything Owens has done – The Sharpie Incident, The Pon Pom Shake, and now The Sit-up Controversy – I see nothing wrong with. The guy’s just having fun, and because those celebrations aren’t showing anybody or any team up, Owens shouldn’t be penalized or fined for his actions. However, I’m sure the No Fun League will once again try to muzzle one of the players it should be marketing.

That’s not to say there isn’t hope. If baseball can FREE ERUBIEL DURAZO!, then football can FREE TERRELL OWENS!. Just Do It, Paul Tagliabue.

And if the Cubs fire Baker, I have a managerial replacement lined up:



She may not know anything about baseball, but I guarantee you this: Under Britney's leadership, the Cubs would never choke again.
