Terrell Owens: Modern Day Hero

It's official, Terrell Owens is just one big softy with a heart of gold. First he cries about people judging his quarterback, now he's saving lives. Yes, Owens is a hero, on and off the field.

According to ESPN writer Sam Alipour, the last thing he expected to see after being hit by a car was the face of Cowboys receiver T.O. hovering over him, making sure he was OK.

It was after the ESPY's, and all Alipour remembers was the screeching of tires, headlights and then ramming into a Honda Civic, shoulder first.

Alipour writes:

"Terrell Owens was standing over me. I'm told he was the first do-gooder on the scene of the accident. That he helped me to my feet and off the street to safe ground. That he didn't leave my side. It seems the mercurial Dallas Cowboys receiver is my hero."

Obviously Alipour was shocked to find Owens as his modern day hero, but still managed to have a somewhat normal conversation with him while they waited for the paramedics to arrive.

Alipour is alive, don't worry. He escaped with only a few lacerations, a bruised knee and some seriously stained shorts. But, like any hero that lurks through the night, saving those that are in need, T.O. vanished before Alipour could even thank him.

Could it be that T.O. is not only an awesome receiver, but also the world's real life Batman? Who knows! We might need one though, seeing as how our current movie Batman has recently been charged with assault. We need you Terrell!
