16 years ago, Terrell Owens celebrated on the Dallas star

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers face off against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday afternoon and a week from tomorrow they face the Dallas Cowboys. However, before either game, we have a minor anniversary to celebrate.

16 years ago today, wide receiver Terrell Owens decided it was the right time to celebrate on the star at the 50-yard line of Cowboys Stadium. After a touchdown reception, TO sprinted to mid-field, spread his arms and celebrated in front of Cowboys fans. Later in the game, Emmitt Smith rushed in a touchdown, ran to the 50, and slammed the ball down. Finally, TO scored another touchdown and while slamming the ball down at the 50, he was clocked by George Teague.

Here’s some video of the infamous moments.
