Sports Radio Moment of the Day

Sitting in for Howard Eskin today, Anthony Gargano joined Ike Reese, and two men went on and on about why didn't want to watch the Pro Bowl. Because it's boring and meaningless? Of course not- because of Donovan McNabb.

The two hosts went on about how they didn't want to see McNabb "clowning around" at the Pro Bowl, when everyone back in Philly knows that he hasn't won a Super Bowl yet.

Which brings up a natural question- how should McNabb, or any other non-Super Bowl-winning quarterback, behave in the offseason? Take a vow of poverty? Engage in self-flagellation? Not appear in public at all?

How about "work out hard, sometimes with teammates, in an attempt to be ready for the next year?" That seems to be the most likely way to bring about an eventual championship- and it's what McNabb does, every year.

I'm telling you- the McNabb/Obama parallel is stronger than ever, with Donovan filling the Lucifer role on sports talk radio that the president does on political talk. To their single-minded enemies, anything either man says or does, no matter how innocuous, is occasion for full-throated vitriol and outrage.
