Troy Aikman and Drew Bledsoe are getting in on the Gulf relief effort, and they're doing a lot more than posing for photos and raising worker morale: They're working with a company that's producing filtration systems it says might be able to help with the water cleanup.â†µ
Ecosphere Technologies' Ozonix water treatment system separates oil from water and would replenish the gulf and allow BP to reuse the oil.
"[BP's chemical dispersant] keeps it underwater and out of sight, out of mind, which we don't think is the long-term answer," said Bledsoe, who played for the Cowboys in 2005-06. "It just keeps the oil in the water. What we're proposing is using our technology to help get the oil to the surface in a more contained environment, so we can more efficiently strip the oil out of the water."
Just so we're all clear on our celebrity relief hierarchy, let's review what does and does not constitute acceptable offers of assistance. NFL quarterbacks? Check. Kevin Coster? Check. The guy who's made water movies people actually liked? Sorry, pal.â†µ
