Hi Donovan,
You could get traded to Chicago and start there. I'll take you over Grossman.


But beware, Chicago fans boo a lot too.

Hey, I didn't know Donovan McNabb was a U2 fan. Hey, Donovan, how long have you been a fan of U2?

McNabb Looks Foolish Compared to Story After His

Those of us who caught HBO's Real Sports program were lucky enough to catch a story about a man who managed to succeed against the odds. And that man certainly wasn't Donovan McNabb.

HBO's piece on McNabb, done by James Brown (who also hosts CBS' NFL Today program) was largely an apologetic piece of fluff. Brown chronicled McNabb's upbringing in the suburbs of Chicago, and how he was one of the few African-Americans in the area. McNabb even detailed the fact he got into a fight or two when he was young. Welcome to childhood, Donovan. Is there anybody who didn't get into fights as a kid? Getting your nose bloodied is part of growing up. McNabb acts like it is a novel concept.

McNabb then went on to spit his drivel about how black quarterbacks have it so much tougher than white quarterbacks, though when asked, he offered no empirical evidence. Maybe Donovan hasn't been paying attention to the treatment of Rex Grossman, or Jets fans cheering when Chad Pennington got injured, or the criticism leveled at Eli Manning on a weekly basis.

That wasn't the only way McNabb came off poorly. In one instance, Brown was narrating over game film about the lack of talent around McNabb. While Brown was doing this, there was a shot of McNabb missing a wide open Kevin Curtis in the end zone by a good seven or eight yards.

McNabb, the man who is one of the highest profile athletes in the country, who does soup commercials and penned a $100 million contract, even admitted that sometimes he wonders, "why me?"

The story that followed made McNabb seem like the quintessential whiny, spoiled, American athlete.

It was about a young man named Lopez Lomong, who was from the African nation of Sudan. When he was six years old, he and the rest of the children from his village were kidnapped by Sudanese rebels, who were going to turn them into child soldiers.

Lomong wound up in one of their camps, and the surroundings were not pleasant. He explained that 100 boys stayed in a single room, with no plumbing, electricity or windows. Boys had little to eat or drink, so they were slowly dying from dysentery.

He and three other boys managed to escape through a tiny hole, and they ran for three days, straight into Kenya, where he spent the next ten years in a refugee camp.

Eventually, after what amounted to winning an essay contest, he was selected to go to America and live in Syracuse, New York, with two white people he had never met before. In essence, he was getting a new family and a chance to start a new life, even though he was afraid of basic things like electricity, which he had never seen before.

Soon, he started to run track in high school, and he wound up at Northern Arizona University, where he recently won national tile in the 1,500 meter race.

Shortly after, Real Sports took him back to his home in Africa. There, he met two brothers for the first time, and saw his mom and dad for the first time in 17 years. They were living in poor conditions, in tiny rooms they called apartments and if you wanted to use the water, you had to boil it. Nobody had shoes and the road was made of dirt.

Lopez Lomong recently became an American citizen, and he hopes to compete in the Olympics, though his main goal is to bring his brothers to America so they can run.

And if they're lucky, Donovan McNabb can share his sob story. Maybe they'll learn what it's like to really have it tough.

Headache, that story about the African runner was mindblowing. McNabb definitely looked like a shitbag after that story.

I went to a Phillies game this year where they honored the head of PR for the team. He has been with the team for close to 30 years. He got booed.

DMac, man, get your spouse Andy to talk to management and get some good receivers in there. Hell, even two non no-names would be great man.

I thought the TO thing was brilliant. Of course he got in trouble and Ocho Cinco didn't...though as celebrations go TO wins by a landslide.
