Bernard Hopkins vs. Donovan McNabb: The 46-year-old boxer popped off the other day to Marcus Hayes of the Philly Daily News about how Donovan McNabb isn’t black enough. “Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He’s the one who got the extra coat. The extra servings. ‘You’re our boy’ … He thought he was one of them.” I think the “Executioner” took a few too many shots to the head in his (overrated?) boxing career. Mike Wilbon, who is friends with McNabb, called Hopkins’ comments ignorant. At 17, Hopkins spent five years in jail after being convicted of nine felonies. I guess he’d respect McNabb more if Donovan had done time. [Philly Daily News]
We run through the possibilities.
Enjoy your moment, kid.
This will hopefully be a good thing.
Needless to say, this is bigger than the Olympics.
