If there's one thing I hate to see it is a grown man crying over spilled milk. I am speaking of course in reference to T.O. This dude has lost major brownie points with me.
I used to LOVE T.O. I mean, really, really LOVE him. It wasn't that he was big and dark and that his stomach is cut up like a washboard. I liked his arrogant swagger, that linger sense of 'I'm the shizzle and I know it.' I actually found it quite sexy.
This year, he became a team player. He toned down his "over the top-ness" in press conference and to rub salt in the wound, he cried during the dang presser after last night's loss to the Giants. In spite of what you read in magazines and see on TV, some of us women DO NOT find it sexy to see a man cry. And to add injury to insult, he was crying over the treatment of a fellow teammate.
"It's not fair," he said.
I say it is. He shouldn't be crying to the press, he should have been chewing out his quarterback for traipsing off to Mexico with the Crowned Princess of Stupid. I know we all need a vacation every now and then but he gets a vacation from February to August. Maybe it's just me, but I think Mexico could have waited a couple of weeks. I mean dang, it's been there for how many centuries already?
Either way, he'll never be able to live this one down. Sitting up in a press conference, wearing Stunnas and crying over how his quarterback is being railroaded in the media.
"It's not fair."
I'll tell you what's not fair - Mike Vick got sentenced to dang near two years in jail for fighting dogs - that ain't fair.
Marion Jones got caught using steriods - that ain't fair.
My Carolina Panthers didn't even make the playoffs this year - that ain't fair either.
And to top it off, the Hollywood writers are still on strike and the last episode of Grey's Anatomy came on Thursday - that really ain't fair.
All of those are reason enough to cry but do you see me crying in a press conference? No. I'm gonna ride it out, just like everyone else. I'm not going to sit down and cry about it.
Here's a word of advice to T.O. for next season. Man up!
