Default Terrell Owens, hero.

snippet:
Quote:
LOS ANGELES -- It was just after 2 a.m. Thursday when I exited an ESPYS after-party somewhere in some uncharted section of downtown L.A., hailed a cab and stepped off the curb. After that, things got fuzzy.

I remember a shout, screeching tires and the glare of fast approaching headlights. I got just enough warning to leap over the hard-charging Honda Civic's front fender and into the windshield, shoulder first.

So, this is what getting hit by a car feels like.

When I came to, I was on the sidewalk, my shoulder hurting like crazy, shards of glass in my forearm and blood dripping from my fingers, while limo drivers and other witnesses screamed this way and that. The paramedics told me I was lucky to be alive ("Last time I saw a windshield like that," said one, "guy lost both his legs"), and all I could think was, "Damn! I just bought this Banana Republic tie-and-shirt ensemble!"

That, and "Holy crap, that's T.O.!"

Terrell Owens was standing over me. I'm told he was the first do-gooder on the scene of the accident. That he helped me to my feet and off the street to safe ground. That he didn't leave my side. It seems the mercurial Dallas Cowboys receiver is my hero. But my hero looks scared, and this scares me.

McNabb was in the Civic, Shouting, "Damn, I missed the SOB."

I love that because T.O. went over and stood next to a guy who had just gotten hit by a car - and expressed some concern for his well-being, that he's classified as a hero. Take that, American troops in Iraq! Walking over to a guy and hoping he's not dead from being hit by a car = hero!

(And KT - I know you're not saying he's a hero, rather that's what all the media stories are saying) LOL

Are we sure TO did not think the guy was a QB and it was a bus that was coming and through the guy under it?

No. He thought it was Romo who had been hit.

"That's my quarterback, man..." (cue the tears...)
