    Good point about Lee...LOL. But I have only one response to this:

    [sign]TMI!![/sign] :pound:

    Though you did realize what association was intended with TheMicrowave on a Pistons website, right?

    SAY WHAT? Isn't that Vinnie Johnson? What's he got to do with any of this?

    Gimme another hint.

    Oh, I thought I was in some alternate reality. I was starting to suspect that maybe the drinking water in Idaho was a little...I dunno...not quite right, or something. :)

    Seeing as how this thread started off being about a possible suicide attempt by Terrell Owens, can we now lay claim to having just gone through the biggest non-sequitir in PF.com history? :first:

    Yes indeed. But hilarity is often the first reponse to something sad and shocking.Call it denial, avoidance, head in the sand...suicide is such a potent and powerful word.

    I must say the picture of Vinnie really picked up my mood this morning. Eye candy! I've seen him on NBATV Great Games before but I was watching Laimbeer and Isiah more.

    Well, if muscular legs are your thing, I don't think any Piston has ever topped this guy:

    "Flamboyant Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens flashed a thumbs-up as he left a hospital Wednesday, hours after the release of a police report saying he tried to kill himself by overdosing on pain medication. A confusing series of events swirled around T.O. with few answers.

    Police and fire officials held news conferences to say they couldn't talk because of privacy issues. Owens planned to talk publicly at team headquarters later Wednesday afternoon, and the Cowboys went about their business without their No. 1 receiver for now".

    Conference scheduled for 3:30 pm.

    During his news conference both he and his publicist are denying that it was a not a suicide attempt. Appears that he had an allergic reaction to some supplements he was taking and the whole thing was blown out of proportion.:yellowprison: :stirthepot:

    T.O. now says:

    Sounds to me like he's probably telling the truth, but how the hell did this happen? A story gets out that he tried to kill himself, and now it turns out to be false? I can't remember anything like this ever happening before, in such a public way. It's completely messed up. :wacko:

    I feel sorry for T.O. I think he was depressed because he got injured again. I don't think he tried to kill himself though. Anyone that has or knows people that have taken Vicoten knows that those are some mind altering drugs and can put you in a dark place by just taking the regular dosage let alone adding a couple more pills thinking it will kill the pain more.

    I also heard about some of T.O's child hood and how he grew up not knowing who his father was only to find out his father lived across the street from him the whole time and never acknowledeged him. Then also finding out the girl he had a crush on was actually his sister. That is some wild stuff. I think any person would be a little messed up going through that.

    I've stronly disliked T.O. for a long time. Today I feel sorry for him.

    It really puts football in perspective. As well as these guys get paid and as much as we critique their every move on the field, they're still human off it and struggle with the same types of demons everyone else does.
