For the seventh time in his career, Terrell Owens is a pro bowler. The first six times were in the National Football League. Most recently it was in the Professional Bowlers Association League.
Actually, according to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com (via Deadspin), T.O. is only a semi-pro bowler this time, although the prefix is nothing new for the former Eagle. He’s also been a semi-professional arena football player for the Allen Wranglers, and once attempted to become a semi-professional basketball player during his stint in Philadelphia.
To think that Joe Banner would have the gall to deny Owens the privilege of becoming a two-sport athlete.
Wesseling reveals Owens is the celebrity owner of the Dallas Strikers five-member bowling squad. The once-grandiose wide receiver made his debut last week, rolling a 475 total in three rounds.
Based on those scores, it’s a good thing bowling is only temporary. T.O. has been staying shape and catching passes from the likes of Tom Brady in the hopes of being ready for his return to the NFL. You may recall he did spend last summer at training camp with the Seattle Seahawks, but was released in August.
