...but suicide? Terrell Owens got a $25 million dollar deal to go play for the Cowgirls...that's something to be depressed over?
"...The friend, who is not identified in the report, "noticed that (his) prescription pain medication was empty and observed (Owens) putting two pills in his mouth," the police report said.
The friend attempted to pry them out with her fingers, then was told by Owens that before this incident he'd taken only five of the 40 pain pills in the bottle he'd emptied. Owens was asked by rescue workers "if he was attempting to harm himself, at which time (he) stated, `Yes.'"
Owens was hospitalized late Tuesday because of what his publicist said was an allergic reaction to pain medicine he was taking for a broken hand. Doctors reportedly tried to induce vomiting." (source)
Well, we already had a funeral for him here in Philly... ("...Prior to the Eagles game against the Cowboys, in another one of his many own controversial actions, WIP's Howard Eskin led a mock-funeral outside Lincoln Financial Field to lay the Terrell Owens legacy in Philadelphia "to rest". Fans put various Terrell Owens memorabilia into a casket and loaded it into a hearse." source)
I don't mean to seem overly callous, but I *hate* hearing about these overindulgent rich jerks that have it all (for being able to throw a ball) trying to kill themselves. Why doesn't T.O. put his career on hold and go down to the 9th Ward in New Orleans and meet some people that actually have it bad --or maybe volunteer at Walter Reed to see how blessed his life has actually been...
(Update: T.O. Just had a press conference to deny he made an attempt at suicide (said the rest of the 40 pills were in his drawer?) even though police are saying say he did.)
