    First off, thanks to all the Zoners once again. The kids did their thing and seemed to have a good time.

    We arrived at the field and saw the two Cowboys semi-trucks and felt a little excited. Owens' publicist Kim was there and I told her Tanin was from Cowboyszone.com and she said "Oh! Right!" and she had me fill out a new registration form because evidently she never got my fax when I faxed the registration to her.

    The guys started doing their drills and stuff...I was sitting up in the stands and recognized Rosenhaus. Of course I immediately went over and bugged him for a picture. He happily took one with me and I was happy I didn't burst into flames when I shook the Evil One's hand for the picture. I might have irritated him later on because I kept finding myself in the same general area as him while he was having phone conversations. (I smoke and was trying to get away from people to indulge...he was doing the same but I think it was for privacy.) At one point he was all the way out amongst the parked cars so he could make his evil plans over the phone. I did hear him talking before he knew I was standing there. This is a quote because as soon as I heard it I wrote it down: "Too bad, he's already signed. Let's just keep a low profile. We're just happy to be here, hope we can help the team, blah, blah, blah. The usual bulls**t." Awesome! Nice to hear the candid truth from one of those guys. Later on he was sitting up in the stands under a shaded canopy. This is where I was sitting, too. He was talking to some other rich guy, I think. Evidently Drew's girlfriend is in the hospital and is having some kind of problem with her kidneys. After hanging up and explaining this to the rich guy, the rich guy said "Oh, that's terrible." Drew smiles and says "Yeah...I feel bad for her" with a little shoulder shrug. Wow, what a sensitive boyfriend.

    The most fun I had all day was watching my son kick butt out on the field. A close second, however, was standing around and talking football with Larry Brown. It was cool...no elitist, ego stuff with Larry and the other ex-NFL guys.From Larry:

    Henry Ellard was the best route runner he's ever seen. Sterling Sharpe was the strongest WR he ever played against. The Raiders suck because Al Davis doesn't listen to anybody. The Cowboys teams he played on had great great chemistry. All the guys were approachable and played for each other. He said for them, going to the playoffs wasn't even a question. They expected to be in the playoffs. Said Jimmy was a good coach because he let players be themselves within the framework of the team. Like if Jimmy talked to Irvin, he'd say 'Mike, if you go to the strip clubs don't touch the girls. If you're going to drink have one of your boys drive.' He didn't try to supress you, he just told you to be you safely.

    Owens didn't show until the very end of the day both days. Actually, he showed up after camp was supposed to be over for the day both days. Oh, well. It was the T.O. camp in name only. Byron Williams is the guy that really ran the camp. (He played for Parcells on the Giants in the 80's) Williams told the kids "When TO gets here, he will answer all your questions. You can ask him anything you want." Riiiiiight. TO wouldn't even speak to anybody unless the cameras were on him. (Doesn't surprise me at all.)

    The other coaches/players more than made up for TO being...well, TO.

    Hmmm......Interesting write up.

    More reason to be ever so cautious about getting my hopes up on T.O.

    I was just about to ask where the pictures were tass. I had that poster of the cheerleaders. I remember being in lust with the redhead who was front and center.

    Larry Brown looks great.

    Owens isn't Rosenhaus' only client; he could have been talking about anyone.
