T.O. dumped overboard during indoor game
Terrell Owens' catchphrase "Get Your Popcorn Ready" took on a new meaning on Sunday.
Playing in his first road game since joining the Allen Wranglers of the
Indoor Football League, Owens got a taste of the indoor-life when he was
dumped over the sideline wall and into the first row of seats during
the Wranglers game against the New Mexico Stars.
Owens caught the ball on the Stars' 23-yard line and broke to his left.
A New Mexico defender engaged Owens five feet from the sideline wall
and drove the former NFL receiver over the padding and into a group of
fans sitting near the field.
"Got another road victory!! Wranglers regrouped n 2nd half!! I got flipped over 4 the 1st time, I enjoyed it!!" Owens tweeted on Sunday.
There are no reports if the fans had any popcorn or if they had it ready when Owens fell in their lap.
Owens caught five passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, helping the Wranglers to a 45-28 win.
The Wranglers improved their record to 3-0 on the season. Owens has four touchdowns in the two games he has played.
