A cardboard cut-out of Donovan McNabb and Santa Claus!!!
PHILADELPHIA, PA 01/15/14 -- We often hear celebrities acknowledging their many blessings and expressing their wish to "give back to their fans and the community." For 15 year NFL veteran and six-time Pro-Bowler Terrell Eldorado Owens -- aka T.O. -- this sentiment takes on a far less warm and fuzzy tone as it relates to City of Brotherly Love, where he played from 2004 thru 2006.
During his tenure with the Eagles, T.O. thrilled and enraged fans, confounded coaches and jacked up front-office blood-pressure, while still widely regarded as one of the great performers of the game.
And now, though no longer a player, T.O. is still needling Philadelphia, most recently in the nationally broadcast Carl's Jr. cheesesteak burger TV ads, where Philly fans are portrayed as boorish drunks hanging out of a beat-up SUV hollering "T.O. you suck!"
On Thursday, February 20th this love hate relationship will be lanced like a festering boil when T.O. returns to the City of Brotherly Love as the featured guest of the “The 1st Annual Philly Sports Roast.” I'm coming back to Philly to take care of some unfinished business and set the record straight," according to sources close to the mercurial T.O.!
This highly anticipated, unscripted and explicitly candid event will draw together high-profile sports celebrities, media personalities and top socialites to raise money for Mary Kate's Legacy Foundation www.marykateslegacy.com and to support firefighters thru ALL HANDS WORKING www.allhandsworking.org.
“The 1st Annual Philly Sports Roast” is presented by Philly's own funnyman and impressionist extraordinaire Joe Conklin and on-air sports savant and Wing Bowl creator Al Morganti, in association with big bash experts, Hair O' The Dog producers Metrospect Marketing. Joining in the hosting duties are entrepreneurs Julie Dorenbos, wife of Eagles player Jon Dorenbos, and "Boxing, Brains and Beauty" girl Susie Celek, who together run Skin Palette sunless tanning salon.
While the T.O. and fellow sports and media do the "Roasting" everyone in attendance will enjoy an evening of raw laughter and celebration at the very first "Philly Sports Roast" -- soon to be Philadelphia tradition.
