NFL Notes

Oh, the Vikings. What can you say? I’m just happy as a fan that I get to enjoy this, because I know this run of dominant wins every week isn’t going to last forever. That said, a Super Bowl victory this year would be ideal.
– Prince was at the game! Of course he’s a fan of the Minnesota team in purple.
– As for the Eagles, I went to the game Sunday, and was happy to see that after months of hearing that Donovan McNabb never, ever, under any circumstances comes from behind to win games, he’s now done so in the fourth quarter two weeks in a row- and that’s without Brian Westbook. The Eagles are now 7-4, their best record through 11 games since their Super Bowl run in ’04, and that’s prior to their usual December hot streak. Not hearing so much get-rid-of-Andy-and-Donovan talk these days, huh?
– Two notes from the game- they played a clip from “Rocky Balboa” on the scoreboard that I heard had never before been played at an Eagles game, and at one point there was a snippet of the “Coach” theme song. I’m certainly an Eagles fan of the Minnesota State Screaming variety.

Oh, Tiger

Glad to hear Tiger Woods is okay, and I’m curious to hear exactly what happened outside his house Friday morning. I think the weirdest part is that he was reported in “serious condition”- and we’re supposed to wonder, “is he dead?”- until we heard about a half hour later that he was out of the hospital and totally fine.

Sports Radio Moment of the Day

A caller to Brian Startare Saturday accused Donovan McNabb of not throwing enough to DeSean Jackson because he is “jealous of Jackson’s popularity.” This is an old talking point from the McNabb/TO wars that was never especially substantiated even back then, but makes even less sense now, especially since McNabb threw a long touchdown pass to Jackson just last week.
