    TO was hospitalized this morning after injesting an array of prescription medicines in an attempt at suicide. Even though he didn't die, he had an allergic reaction to one of the pills that made it worse. When asked if he did it on purpose, he said "yes." Nothing else is known about the situation at the moment.

    The rescue workers found an empty prescription pain killer med bottle and Owens was popping two more. He said of the 40 pills in the bottle he had only taken 7, but was trying to harm himself.

    Now the Media is giving out mixed reports. Some day he was trying to harm himself, others say he just took the wrong pill. They now say it was only one type of medication, but if he had taken 33 pills in the couple months before then, why did he not have an allergic reaction then? There will be a press conference at 2:30 on ESPN, we'll find out then.

    Just goes to prove that it takes more than fame, fortune, and great talent to make a person happy...

    T. O. will be in our prayers, I'm sure.

    He said he did it because he was depressed.

    He played with a broken hand.

    In his Press Conference now he is saying it was not a suicide attempt and he did not have an allergic reaction. He took a couple when he got home, then that night after his doctor left he took some more pills with his supplements (multivitamins, creatine, etc) and that he took up to 5 before his friend called 911. He then tried taking two more before going to the hospital. He said he is not depressed but he said that earlier because he was "out of it" and doesn't even remember the police, EMTs, or anyone in his house, or talking to them. It was Hydrocodone. It was an accident.

    The media has a tendency to blow everything out of proportion, because it gets them better ratings if they have a bigger story. Don't believe everything you hear. Even interviews can be sliced and diced on film to back up what they want to report.

    I just find it hard to believe that Owens, would do somethign like that. He has always gotten what he has wanted and has always been described in good spirit .
