Terrell Owens didn't exactly "retire" from professional football as much as he was not wanted by any team in the league. I would be willing to put my meager one-month salary on the table and bet that if any team in the league called him for a tryout, he'd be there within a day, even for league minimum.
The problem with Owens is he's got a reputation, and not a good one, and he's also 39 years old. I can say I believe Owens could still contribute in some way because of the kind of athlete he is, but what team wants to spend money on the diva of all diva wide receivers who is pushing 40?
There have been rumors that Owens is broke for a while now. Considering how many NFL stars find themselves in financial trouble shortly after they retire, it's not surprising. Owens has possibly found a way to make a few bucks, though, and that is by becoming a semi-professional bowler.
"I have a lot of stuff going on right now, but there happened to be a break in my schedule. "I wanted to experience this tournament, and the experience was good. I'm really into bowling, and I like it a lot."
Owens is part owner of the Dallas Strikers, a five-player team in a BPA league of eight teams. Maybe this is because he really likes bowling or maybe he's really hoping that semi-professional bowling will restore him to his former glory. Either way, it seems that football is a part of TO's past.
So, bowling fans, get your popcorn ready. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see some awesome strike dances.
