    Terrell Owens scores three touchdowns in Indoor Football League debut

    Terrell Owens scores three touchdowns in Indoor Football League debut

    (Presswire)
    The last time Terrell Owens scored three touchdowns in a professional football game was five years ago in a nationally-televised game played in front of 63,000 fans at sold-out Texas Stadium. In his return to the sport on Saturday night, the former NFL star matched that scoring feat on a much smaller scale.
    The Dallas Cowboys star on his helmet was replaced with a curly W. The opposing team wasn't the hated Washington Redskins, but the alliterative Wichita Wild. And when T.O. celebrated in the end zone three times, he did it in front of 5,700 fans and a few hundred empty seats at the Allen Events Center.
    T.O. made his Indoor Football League debut for the Allen Wranglers this weekend, catching three passes, all for touchdowns, in his first professional arena game. Though he was a drawing card for the team -- the 5,711 fans in attendance were said to be more than the team had for their entire home schedule last year -- the lack of sell-out must have been disconcerting for a team that had hoped to make Owens the must-see ticket in town.
    Catching passes from a quarterback making $225 per game (and $25 more for a victory), Owens looked at ease on the small, indoor field. He didn't catch a pass in the second half, but the three first-half TDs were enough to earn him player of the game honors.

    There's no volume in the highlight package below, so I recommend syncing up the audio from the infamous "that's my teammate, that's my quarterback" clip with the video of his three touchdowns. It's like a TO version of "Dark Side of The Rainbow."

    Owens has a 50 percent ownership stake in the team. The roster is largely made up of former college players, some fairly well-known (quarterback Bryan Randell broke passing records at Virginia Tech) and some less so (Doug Pierce, who lead the Wild in receptions, starred at the NAIA's Friends University).
    The 38-year-old missed the 2011 NFL season with an injury. He is hoping to play his way back into the league for the upcoming season. It may be a tall order.
    Cowboys Stadium is only 42 miles from Allen, Tex., but as Terrell Owens is quickly learning, it's a world away.

    Same thing all these guys who wind up broke 15 minutes after they are out of the league...

    1. Houses

    2. Cars


    3. Bling - AI owes a jewlery store in Atl @ 800K.

    4. Child support because, apparently, they smart enough to wear a condom. See Shawn Kemp & TO. I think TO is paying (or supposed to be paying) child support to five or six different baby mommas right now.

    5. Bad investments/Not looking after their money/Being taken advantage of by people they trusted.

    he owns half the team, you better believe that the quarterback making $225 a game will be throwing the ball his way any time they get near the goaline. I bet he gets an extra 500 bucks from Owens every time Owens gets a TD reception

    He is blackballed from the league just like Iverson is in the NBA. These guys want to be their own people but the leagues want to own them and tell them how to act. If Russel Westbrook doesn't become a good soldier look for him to be the next Iverson. The league wants Durant the face of it and not some Smug kid who can play but won't take orders from the higher up. Westbrook has basically the same game as Derrick Rose but for some reason it is okay for Rose to do what he does but for Westbrook he has to play second fiddle to Durant. Durant the well spoken tattoo less soldier. These rich whitey's want nothing to do with the hip hop crap.
