Briefly: On McNabb & Ultimate Fighting.

How humiliating was the Eagles game Monday night? Has there ever been a home field loss that big before?

The Man and I somehow got into a disagreement about T.O. the other day. He says they should have kept him because they need him to win and I say he clearly needed to go.

Anyway, I don't really care about football, but any sport can be made interesting if you can combine it with politics. That's what Philly Blogger Will Bunch at Attytood has done. Apparently, the NAACP Chief has accused Donovan McNabb of "playing the race card" "He calls McNabb a "mediocre" quarterback and weak leader who "played the race card" by consciously switching styles from a QB who frequently ran -- the stereotype of a "black quarterback" -- to a traditional pocket passer." (Hey wait, didn't Rush say something similar ages ago and get lambasted for saying it?!) Will works for the Philadelphia Daily News, so he has the whole story...

I should probably explain the picture now... I tried to watch Ultimate Fighting last night because everyone keeps talking about it. Eww. It's not even fighting. Its basically two guys in really little undies rolling around on top of each other (not that there's anything wrong with that). It was odd and awkward. Sorry.
