Leading Off (12/12/11)

Terrell Owens Financial Troubles Shine Light on Dallas Real Estate: From the look of the photo on TMZ, the condo that the mercurial Dallas wide receiver purchased for nearly $2 million in 2008 was in The House. Owens was forced to part with the condo for $1.6 million last month, or somewhere around $350,000 less than he spent on the place, which says as much about the team-less Owens’ financial health as it does about the ever-softening Victory Park real estate market.

UPDATE: The House, Azure; Victory Park, Harwood: all the generi-lux really does blur together. That said, the FBvians in the comments are right, TO’s former pad was at the Azure.

Parents in Custody After Severe Case of Child Neglect: This story is pretty disgusting (flaking skin?!), but it is encouraging that it was a teenager visiting the house of Justin and Brittany Alston in Hood County who called the police after noticing that the couple’s 8-month-old child was starving to death. The baby is now in critical condition at Cook Children’s Medical Center. It may sound odd, but I sure hope drugs were involved. At least it would be an explanation.

Cowboys Iced: For the second week in a row, Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey hit a last second field goal only to have to try to kick it again because of a last second timeout before the snap. Two weeks in a row, Bailey didn’t make the second attempt (granted, last night’s kick was blocked). Oh, and adding injury to insult, Dallas running game revelation, DeMarco Murray, fractured and sprained his ankle. And the defense blew a 12-point lead. Hello December!
