Cowboys star's first book, 'Little T Learns to Share,' comes out next month

MSNBC News Services
Updated: 10:26 a.m. ET Oct. 6, 2006

Controversial Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens has a knack for making the headlines, and he's adding a new wrinkle: as an author.

Owens, who suffered an accidental overdose of pain medication last week that was first thought to be an attempted suicide, will release a children's book in mid-November, called "Little T Learns to Share," the Dallas Morning News reported Friday.

The book, published by BenBella Books, is about a young boy learning the value of sharing. Little T at first refuses to share his football but then learns that there's no fun in it if he doesn't share the ball with his friends, the Dallas Morning News added.


"I tried to play outside alone and throw it by myself, but football isn't football unless you play with someone else," Little T says to his mother.

And this won't be Owens' only book. As part of his Timeout Series, the star will release a second book entitled "Little T Learns What Not to Say," due out in spring 2007, and a third one called "Little T Learns To Say I'm Sorry," set for fall 2007.

"It's a life lesson for discipline," co-author Courtney Parker told the Dallas Morning News. "It's ironic because he's considered one of the more undisciplined players in the NFL."


Parker has known T.O. since they were freshmen at Tennessee-Chattanooga.

Owens talked with Parker about writing a book after he was released by the Eagles in 2005.

"We're watching television and the commentator said, T.O.'s behavior is so childish," Parker said. "And then (Owens) says, `That's not a bad idea for a book. It should be about discipline since the world thinks I have none."

by 'author' I'm sure they mean "Athlete with name slapped on book who had little to nothing to actually do with writing"

I do miss the green smilie.

I wish this site would incorporate a lot more, to be honest.  But I guess it ain't gonna happen, so I will stop whining...a few threads from now. ;)

smilies here are lame, I would have thought they would use the same ones BUT add some new ones, instead they have these blurry pieces of garbage...

I like the old format better, period.

I guess if Madonna can "write" children's books, anyone can.

This is just a gimmick to try to "clear" TO's name a little, IMO.

Who knows more than TO about childish behavior? I think it's brilliant and I wonder whose idea it was.
