Life has given us all constant reminders that it becomes increasingly difficult to grow faster, healthier, and more durable as we age. Sure, as younger versions of our current selves, we heard some pretty cool stories about the fountain of youth. No one we knew was able to find one though, so we dismissed said fountain as a tall tale. That is until we logged into our social media accounts or turned on a television to see what the Philadelphia Eagles are doing.

Jason Kelce turns 35 in November, and he’s still the game’s best center. Lane Johnson is on the wrong side of 30 by NFL standards, and he’s still doing his ‘world’s strongest man’ impersonations. We even saw Jason Peters play good football well into his thirties.

Maybe there is something to this mythical fountain of youth. Maybe the Birds have found it and have figured out a way to transport it to the NovaCare Complex. If they did, they must have done so after signing Terrell Owens, and they must have used him as the guinea pig.

Former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens is still scoring touchdowns.

Get your popcorn ready. Get ready for a few tweets from Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee and former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens because you know they’re coming. T.O. is still scoring touchdowns.

This past weekend, the NBA Playoffs got underway, and guess what, many of us are still talking about the football we watched. Former Eagles signal-caller Clayton Thorson made his debut in the USFL and won. Owens made his debut for the Zappers versus the Shoulda Been Stars in what’s becoming the very popular Fan Controlled Football league… and he scored a touchdown.

Don’t take our word for it. Take a look for yourselves.

Yep, we’re pretty sure we’ll be hearing about that one for a few days. The Zappers wound up on the wrong side of a 20-12 final score, but who cares? If you love T.O. as we do, this is one of the better football stories that we saw all weekend.

We’re more convinced than we ever have been now. There’s something to that fountain of youth story, and T.O. and Tom Brady both drink from the well. There’s no other explanation for what we keep seeing out of those guys.
