T.O. with your nose so bright

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

Terrell Owens lightened the mood of his weekly news conference by wearing a blinking red ball on his nose. With a group of kids singing carols outside the locker room, Valley Ranch provided a festive atmosphere.

But T.O.'s reindeer nose didn't prevent him from taking shots at a couple of my ESPN colleagues. Owens, who has had a running feud with former Cowboys receiver Keyshawn Johnson, said that Johnson was "jealous" of him because "he's in the booth because of me."

Johnson has been highly critical of T.O. since joining ESPN. T.O. said he was upset that Johnson keeps saying the controversial receiver is padding his stats and isn't interested in championships.

Earlier in the conversation, T.O. suggested that Johnson and Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith should launch a show called "Dumb and Dumber." He did not clarify their roles on the proposed show.
