I really think everyone needs to calm the eff down about the Terrell Owens stuff.
If you are honestly surprised/shocked/upset by any of this, well, then this is more of a “shame on you” situation.
Let’s just let this silliness role off our backs. This doesn’t have to be a sign of the end of civilization as we know it. This the T.O. Show. It’s nothing. It’s nonsense. It’s absolutely nothing new, and we knew it was coming.
Buffalo needs to buck up, because it’s only going to get worse. People in far away places are going to make fun of us, and we will have the choice to get all worked up, and act all insecure, or, we can have a sense of humor and let it go.
Look, Buffalo is an easy target. We’re easy to make fun of. WHO CARES? They were making fun of us before Terrell Owens got here too. It’s no biggie.
Here are the things that are NOT going to happen:
1. People in the media are not going to stop pushing this. This is money in the bank.
2. Certain Buffalonians are NOT going to stop eating this up. I’m too lazy to do ANY research, but I’m willing to bet that T.O. has caused a big, undignified scene in every town he’s ever played. We are not being uniquely stupid. This stupidity is a worldwide epidemic.
3. T.O. is not going to be a quiet teammate.
This is the circus we signed up for when we said, “Yay! Terrell Owens!” It doesn’t have to consume us and it doesn’t have to make us feel badly about who we are. It’s show business.
Either ignore it, or embrace it, but please don’t act like this is a surprise.
