Yo, T.O., Where You At?
That's what the Eagles' exiled wideout is asked in his new ad for Boost mobile phones. His answer: "I'm running routes in my head right now. ... I've matured. ... I can't be stopped. ... I'm a playmaker. I'm a game-changer."
Best part, though, is where, instead of saying anything, he just cracks his neck.
That clip’s on T.O.’s Web site, whose home page has had hardly anything new for a couple of months. Silence is golden when talking costs you gold.
Sunday, though, where he was at was a Heat game in Miami, and a Fox reporter asked if he was headed for the Dolphins. After all, coach Nick Saban recently expressed interest in obtaining Owens, who has the Eagles' blessing to seek a trade.
T.O.: "I have no clue."
Reporter: "Any chance going back to Philly?"
T.O.: "All I know is next year, I'll be playing football. Where I don't know."
Correct answer: "Yeah, I'll be in Philly, and that Iran guy will win the Nobel Peace Prize."
Reporter: "Any favorites? Dallas? Denver?"
T.O.: "I do not know. Y'all can keep fishin', but y'ain't got nothing to hook."
