Gaffe of the Week

This one comes from 82-year-old Eagles legend Chuck Bednarik, who appeared at Eagles' training camp earlier this week and said that he "always despised" Reggie White, the late Eagles superstar who goes into the Hall of Fame this weekend.

Following an outcry from Eagles fans, Bednarik apologized today, claiming that he'd confused White with Terrell Owens.

How could he confuse the two? Do "they all look alike" to him, or is he just senile?

Chuck Bednarik is in fact insane and somewhat senile. When the Eagles were in the Super Bowl after the 04 season, local news interviewed him and he basically went on a long rant about how he hates the Eagles, and how he hoped the 04 Eagles wouldn't win the Super Bowl. He's also broke and has had to sell off almost all his NFL memorabilia.
