Terrell Owens Out in the Cold

As Western New York temperatures hit the high 90s this summer, it is pretty amusing watching the first seven minutes of the second season premiere of “The T.O. Show.”

Titled “Bye Bye Buffalo,” the season premiere of the reality show airs at 10:30 p.m Sunday on VH-1.

After his one season with the Buffalo Bills ended in disappointment, wide receiver Terrell Owens is shown walking and running around WNY wearing a Russian hat that covers both ears as the snow and the winter wind flies around him.

The snowy pictures of WNY in January just before he left town without fanfare strike a contrast with Owens’ summer arrival when fans rocked the Buffalo airport on a summer-like night.

Buffalonians shouldn’t get too hot under the collar about the winter cliché. After all, it is cold and snowy here in January.

They should be more concerned about Owens’ words. And he doesn’t have anything negative to say about his time here and takes some responsibility for last year’s disappointing season. Those are wise public relations moves.

“I feel like I let the team and the city down,” said Owens.

One of his publicists, Monique Jackson, isn’t as kind. Jackson is pregnant and is ready to go back to Los Angeles to enjoy an easier life.

“Instead I’m in Buffalo freezing my ass off,” she said.

After seven minutes, Owens, Jackson and publicist Kita Williams head to Los Angeles as the wide receiver waits during the off-season to find out which team he is going to play for this coming season.

The second season consists of 10 episodes, including a one-hour season finale. A VH-1 release said Mo gives birth to her third child and Owens wraps filming on his first movie role in the finale.

The premiere episode will be reviewed in a future blog.
