Things I've Learned From the Last Two Days of Philadelphia Sports Talk Radio

Donovan McNabb was never really all that good, he needs to stop whining, there's no racism in sports at all, and black people really need to get over it already when it comes to slavery. Also, apparently there's a baseball team in Philly, and they're in a pennant race, or something.

My personal favorite was the WIP caller last night who said that racism isn't against blacks isn't that big a deal because, after all, "the Irish were slaves too."

Sure, Donovan could come back this week, crush Detroit, and lead the Iggles on yet another playoff run. But barring that, it's looking like the end game for him in Philly is on the way. Can the Vikings sign him? Please? And Pro Football Talk says Minneapolis native Larry Fitzgerald wants out of Arizona. Hmm....

In the meantime, Mike Freeman has an excellent column about this, and so does Jason Whitlock, even though the former takes a shot at the latter towards the end. And McNabb responds himself, on his blog.

You also learned about that nefarious period of Irish slavery.

For some reason, I have difficulty explaining to some of my relatives that there is a difference between being treated like shit by the English and being auctioned off and sold as livestock.

So if as a person of Anglo-Saxon decent, if I give my wife, a person of Irish decent, a gift, does that make it a case of reparations?
