TO & Hugh Throw Down

TO & Hugh Throw Down

From Yahoo:

Nov  6 Mark Eckel, of the Trenton Times, reports Philadelphia
Eagles WR Terrell Owens had a fistfight with former defensive end and
current team ambassador Hugh Douglas. The fight occurred in front of
several of his teammates. According to one of the sources the
Owens-Douglas fight "was like WWE Smackdown." Another source said both
men threw at least two punches during the altercation and when it was
over Owens challenged QB Donovan McNabb first and then everyone else in
the room saying, "You want some. Anyone else want some." The Eagles
refused to comment about the situation, other than the statement that
revealed Owens' suspension. Owens and Douglas have been at odds since
training camp and almost got into an altercation in an elevator at
Lehigh University.

Wow.  That has to be a whole lot better than WWE Smackdown.  I'd put my money on Owens.  Supposedly this little scrap took place on Wednesday.  You can read Eckel's article in the Trenton Times here.

Foxsports has a great recap of the fight:

Those present told FOXSports.com, while Owens was in the pool
rehabilitating his injured ankle, Douglas came into the area and began
to get on the outspoken wide receiver. The two jawed back and forth
before, believe it or not, Owens got out of the pool and went to get
his sneakers on in order to get traction to throw some blows.

When
he came back, with shoes on, Owens and Douglas started swinging.
Douglas threw a shot, which missed, then Owens threw five or six
punches and landed a couple.

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
