Philly Sports Roast
Joe Conklin looked pleased, after another night of frivolity, some drinking, some more drinking, and a lot laughs at the inaugural Philly Sports Roast Thursday night at the Crystal Tea Room.
Terrell Owens visited Talk Philly and spoke about the Philly Sports Roast of T.O. happening Thursday night.
Joe Conklin carries a ubiquitous quality. If you’ve been around the banquet circuit or award dinner season long enough in the Philadelphia area, you’re bound to have run into the shaved head comedian and impressionist extraordinaire.
Though his time here was short, and ended poorly, Terrell Owens was probably the most popular athlete in the city at his peak. To this day, a good percentage of fans take Owens’ side in the TO vs. Donovan McNabb fiasco that was ultimately the cherry on top of the star wide receiver’s undoing with the Eagles.
