It brings me great joy to share this with Skins fans on Dallas week. A few years back, former Redskin Brian Kozlowski got a handwritten letter in his mailbox. My first thought after reading this were, "This must have come from a little kid" or "That it was a cool gesture, Koz probably doesn't get a ton of fan mail this late in his career." But no, this letter came from the hand of an actual functioning adult. I have typed it in here exactly as it was written...no changes.
Dear Brian,I'm sure Koz and Mark Brunell would love to join you on Wheel of Fortune and if all goes well there, I bet they would love to come meet you at Wal Mart on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, or New Years Day. Who wouldn't?
How are you doing? I'm doing fine. Can you send me a photo of yourself? Terrell Owens turned 32 years old on December 12, 2005. Terrell Owens threw a birthday party for himself. Jevon Kearse and 18 other football players came to Terrell Owens birthday party. Freddie Mitchell even came to Terrell Owens birthday party. Freddie Mitchell left the Philadelphia Eagles and started playing for the Kansas City Chiefs. Did you hear about Terrell Owens? Do you think Andy Reid would let Terrell Owens come back to the Philadelphia Eagles? My favorite basketball team played against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Terrell Owens birthday and the Philadelphia 76ers won the game. It was a close game. The Philadelphia 76ers had 98 points and the Minnesota Timberwolves had 89 points. What is the name of your favorite hockey team? Did your team play against the San Diego Chargers? Can I be on Wheel of Fortune with you or Mark Brunell on NFL week? My other favorite football team played against the St. Louis Rams 6 days after Terrell Owens birthday and the Philadelphia Eagles won the game. It was a close game. The Philadelphia Eagles had 17 points and the St. Louis Rams had 16 points. Would you like to have Terrell Owens on your team? Can you give Terrell Owens a chance if your coach decided to let him play for your team? Maybe you or Mark Brunell can come to Wal Mart the day before or the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, the day after Christmas or New Years Day. I would like to get a chance to rub elbows with you and some of the other football players. Wal Mart would be on South Columbus Boulevard in Philadelphia. Did you or anybody else watch the basketball game on Terrell Owens birthday or the football game 6 days after Terrell Owens birthday? Good luck to you and your team.
I mean...this letter is amazing. After reading it again I can't be too certain but, T.O. may have written it himself. I think he's been known to talk in the third person from time to time. Anyway, if we're lucky this guy will show up Sunday night with 10,000 friends and some blue towels. Can you even imagine...
