So T. O. signed with the Seahawks, which is minor news I suppose, as well as news that likely means more annoyance for Seahawk fans, on top of having to have Pete Carroll as coach. But what was interesting to me is that according to ESPN today, Owens in his tryout ran a 4.45 forty--at 38 years old. That is pretty damn fast for anyone, but at 38 that is downright impressive. Anyway, that doesn't mean he'll be a factor on the field, but it sure shows that his genetics and effort to stay in shape are top notch.
