Steven Jackson's one of tonight's guests on The T.Ocho Show, which will air on Versus at 9:30. If you're not aware of the T.Ocho show I can unpack that portmanteau—it's Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco's new talk show. I'm not sure I'd trust that combination with a half an hour of TV, but Versus has passed some quotes along ahead of the actual interview. Here's what I got the most out of:â†µ
"I agree with Reggie Bush. I'd rather get hit in my head than my knee"
Really? Clearly Steven Jackson has forgotten more about getting hit in the head and getting hit in the knee than I will ever know, but that's the point.â†µ
"The lockout is definitely possible. I tell young players to save their money"â†µ
Or else ingratiate themselves as thoroughly as possible with the UFL's owners. Finally, Jackson makes his case for inclusion among St. Louis's sports icons:â†µ
"I get better tables in St. Louis than Pujols and Nelly. The Cardinals didn't make the playoffs and Nelly's in the studio right now so I win by default."â†µ
I have no way of confirming or denying this assertion. Nelly's been pretty quiet since Sweatsuit, his dominant performance in the 2009 All-Star Celebrity Softball Game aside, but after Albert Pujols's next contract I have to imagine he'll be able to buy and sell every table in St. Louis. The suburbs, too, if he's into that.
