It is not often that I write something about a punter.
Actually it is not often that anyone writes anything about a punter. I saw this on ESPN a few days ago but just haven’t had the chance to share this until now. By now you are aware that the Vikings got McNabb to be their quarterback for the upcoming season. You are probably also aware that McNabb has worn the #5 his entire career. #5 on the Vikings was already assigned to punter Chris Kluwe. How did they resolve the matter? Just take a look.
Last year (2004), he sold No. 10 to rookie Eli Manning in exchange for an all-expenses-paid vacation on the Gulf of Mexico.
“The whole family is flying in, we rented a car, rented a house for a week and we’ll be relaxing on the beach,” Feagles said. “And we’re all going to be wearing No. 10 jerseys. I’m actually going to get Eli’s address and send him a postcard from there.”
But his good-luck tale doesn’t stop there.
After fleecing Manning, Feagles switched to No. 17 to commemorate his 17th professional season. But this year the Giants signed free agent Plaxico Burress on March 17 – and the former Pittsburgh receiver had to have the number. Turned out Feagles was happy to commemorate his 18th season – for the right price.
“I bought a new house in Arizona and I’m redoing it. … So there you have it,” he said. “This year it’s for an outdoor kitchen.”

For the longest time Rush Limbaugh has been a crazy, ignorant, racist, fear mongering, hate spreading fool. Well today brings a new chapter in that saga.
Rush, who all week was crazy about the NFL and wanting to own a team now says that the NFL is “outpost of racism and liberalism.” Is anyone really surprise that he ignored all available data that proves otherwise. What a joke. I can safely say that 90% of NFL owners are probably Republicans and conservatives. If the NFL was this big liberal outpost…..why did Rush want to join it in the first place? Why did he take a job at ESPN a few years ago commenting on it?
Wow, was that pathetic or what. I’m gonna tag McNabb with the overrated tag (and no it’s not because he’s black either). What the hell was he doing? How much time did the Eagles waste in the last 5 minutes? Is this man not smart enough to call 2 plays in one huddle? It’s not exactly rocket science. So at the start I was sort of pissed that I was working and was pretty much gonna miss the entire first half of the Super Bowl. With the way the 2nd half turned out I wouldn’t have mind missing that either. What a terrible game. What a terrible finish. I can’t remember the last time I was this apathetic going into a championship game in ANY sport (and I mean ANY). McNabb was horrible….and especially those last 5 minutes. I don’t want to see anyone mention him among the top QBs in the league. He looked lost out there in the 4th quarter. What the hell were they doing running down all that time with less then 5 minutes to go? T.O played a hell of a game. Westbrook was nice too……McNabb just killed the Eagles. Eagle fans/McNabb fans…….there’s only one word to describe McNabb tonight….O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D. He choked when it mattered….and I mean choked. I don’t want to see no Chunky Soup commercials with him or his damn mother until this man can prove he can lead his team with something on the line.
