"A lucky fan wearing my jersey 2day will get a signed football by Me & Ocho Cinco! My asst will pick U out!! Good luck!."
A message on Terrell Owens' Twitter feed Sunday violated the NFL's rules against using social media before games. A post on his Twitter account noted that a fan wearing his jersey at the Bengals' game against Tampa Bay would get a football signed by him and Chad Ochocinco. The message was posted an hour before kickoff, violating the NFL's social media policy that prohibits posts 90 minutes before a game.
"I did say in the locker room, very briefly right before we were heading out, that it was a very big night for a lot people in our organization. And we need to honor those people by playing very, very hard. That's all we talked about."
Magic coach Stan Van Gundy knew Sunday night was special, and the evidence was everywhere: a suit, tie, and motivational pregame speech. All atypical Van Gundy. This one meant more, even though it was just a preseason game. And his Magic showed it. Rashard Lewis, J.J. Redick and Ryan Anderson scored 23 points apiece, and the Magic opened the new Amway Center in style with a 135-81 rout of the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday night.
