"You have a guy like Ray Lewis, who, I mean, I thought pretty much he was my friend. I mean, this is a guy, you know, double-murder case, he could have been in jail.
"Seems like the league embraces a guy like that. But I'm going out scoring touchdowns, having fun, but I'm the bad guy."

--Terrell Owens

I'm not going to sit here and criticize Terrell Owens' mocking touchdown dance last week against the Baltimore Ravens. In case you missed it, when he scored he started to do an impersonation of Lewis' dance. I don't care about his celebrations because that's what makes him T.O., but he crosses the line when he starts talking about double murder and people being in jail.
