PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Donovan McNabb is arguably the most polarizing athlete in Philadelphia sports history.
Luckily, for us, the former Eagles quarterback did a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) and answered a bunch of questions. Here are my favorite three McNabb responses.
3. Q: Do champions really eat at McDonald’s?
“Everybody eats at McDonald’s. Barack Obama probably eats at McDonald’s. You know, who didn’t grow up on eating McDonald’s? Did you? That’s the big question. Did you? Chicken McNuggets, McRibs, Big Macs, you tell me. Do you supersize your meal?.”
I honestly can’t tell if McNabb is being serious or not.
2. Q: Okay I’ll ask..did you puke?
“No, I didn’t puke. It’s unfortunate that we still talk about this 11 years after playing in the Super Bowl. But, no. That did not happen and hopefully we can stop talking about it. Once again, go watch the game tape.”
If he hasn’t admitted it yet, he’ll never admit. And we’ll never know the answer.
1. Q: What was, in your opinion, your best season?
“It’s easy to say that my best season was the Super Bowl run, when you look at it statistically.
“I probably would say 2009. A lot of ups and downs, adversities. I was benched in the Baltimore game, and after the benching went on a run. We went on a run and I believe we won the NFC East and ended up playing in the NFC Championship game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Which, I still to this day think it was a patched interference call that was not called, but I’m not going to be pissed off about it, at all.”
It’s funny because, that was actually the 2008 season (although the NFC Championship game was in 2009, to be fair) when the Eagles played the Cardinals in the NFC Championship. And they didn’t win the NFC East, they earned a wild-card birth on the final week of the season — hence, why it was such a special and unlikely run.
