Terrell Owens

Birthday On a Budget

12/7/2011 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1207_terrel_owens_getty_ex
Terrell Owens turns 38 today ... and he's getting wiser with age ... because instead of dropping a fortune on a birthday blowout ... the financially strapped football star has decided to celebrate on the cheap.

For years, T.O. would spend thousands of dollars to honor his special day with high-end bashes all over the country.

But now that he's low on green ... Owens has decided to do the responsible thing ... and have a low-key birthday dinner with his GF and some close friends.

Owens has been telling friends he feels "humbled" by his recent financial troubles ... insisting he's "more grateful for those that love him and have stayed in his corner."

As for his future in the NFL ... we're told T.O. is still confident he'll be back in the league by the end of the year.

Did anybody remind him that he's 38? Who does he think he is Brett Favre? Try sending some pics of your little T.O. to a hot reporter. Maybe that will work.

If he finally succeeds at committing suicide, less than 10 people will miss him and that includes his accountants and agents.

Another stupid jock about to become an ex jock - kicked to the side of the road with the rest that went from "never ending" 6 and 7 figure pay days w/o career financial planning to just scrapping by day to day in order to survive. Plus how many baby mama's are involved - another classic "Let the little head do the thinkin' for the big head too too many times."

At 38 years old with a bad knee, bad attitude average hands and known as an absolute coward when it comes to going over the middle you are done TO, your 15 minutes are up! Your only chance now to stay famous would be to date the worthless tramp known as Kim Kardashian

LOL, Just more jellousy and envy from TMZ commenters who look and act old as **** for there age.

When you are a genetic freak like TO with no serious injuries you can play till your at least 45 or so.

You're not old TO. Jerry Rice played until 42 and you are in better shape than he was. You have at least 4 more years plus more. Who knows by then you could break all of Jerry's records and more..good luck in getting back to the NFL

told you so    

This guy is a clown I told him years ago that if he didnt mind his spending and surround himself with genuine people, thatthe day would come that the fake people will eat up his fortune and sleeping with women without condoms would kick him in his ass. I am not here to judge, but Ive been there and done that.. so hopefully he cuts out all of the arrogance and starts acting like a human being.
