Terrell Owens got his gold Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket and gave a lengthy speech at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on Saturday before the NFL held the official enshrinement ceremony in Canton. What was surprising, though, was that the man who spent his entire career talking about himself - T.O. loves him some T.O. - didn't talk about himself.

Missing the Hall of Fame's other seven inductees and all the pageantry of Canton was no loss for Davis. You showed me how much I loved the game.

"These writers disregarded the system, the criteria and bylaws in which guys are inducted, and ultimately the true meaning of the Hall of Fame and what it represents".

"What I wanted to be able to express with my tie is to let these families know that they're not alone", Moss said of his tie during an appearance on NFL Network.

"No. I would probably say Terrell Owens because I knew that if I went into an alley with this guy, this guy had my back".

Undeterred by skeptical fans, Thomas takes Tour title
The cyclist is expected to fly into the United Kingdom later on Monday - but it is not yet known when he will be back in Wales. The Dutchman has won six TTs overall at the three Grand Tours - the Tour, the Giro d'Italia and the Spanish Vuelta.

Owens became emotional when talking about his mother, Marilyn Owens Heard, and late grandmother, Alice Black.

Owens used part of a speech lasting about 39 minutes to explain why he was in Chattanooga instead of Canton, addressing the "elephant in the room". "Being able to work two or three jobs to provide for us, you took care of us". Owens got a loud ovation when he entered the arena and seemed completely comfortable in his surroundings.

By the time that part of the speech ended, almost everyone in attendance was on their feet as you can see below.

Throughout his entire National Football League career, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens was never the ideal teammate.

Upset about the fact he was forced to wait to get voted into the Hall of Fame, the 44-year old Owens opted to skip the traditional induction ceremonies as a form of protest.
