T.O. Comes to D.C. After All
So the Redskins apparently ignored my advice about signing T.O., but he's coming to D.C. anyhow. To hang out with the President of France, during a black-tie event at the Building Museum. From the AP:
The star receiver is in Washington, D.C., attending the sixth annual National Alzheimer's Gala. He'll receive the Alzheimer's Association's first Young Champions Award on Wednesday night for raising awareness in the fight against the disease. Owens's grandmother has Alzheimer's.
Among the others being honored are French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia and his wife, Sharon Percy Rockefeller.
The AP doesn't mention this, but on the official Web site Owens also is slotted behind a couple of PhDs from the University of Pittsburgh, William E. Klunk and Chester A. Mathis. I mean, that's worse than the whole Jason Witten thing. And what's the Young Champions Award? Why, it "honors a young professional for his or her commitment to the Alzheimer's cause through philanthropy, volunteerism and/or advocacy." See, YOUNG professional. I told you he wasn't old yet.
