Donovan McNabb got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, for dialing long distance on someone else's phone during the Philadelphia Eagles 23-11 win over the New York Giants.
McNabb ran for 8 yards on a second down play, and ran out of bounds into the Giants bench area. He picked up the phone, and pretended to talk to someone, and was promptly flagged for a 15 yard penalty, pushing the Eagles back from a 3rd and 1 to a 3rd and 16. After the game, he immediately said that he regretted his actions after that play.
Anyone have any idea who he was calling? I have a few guesses:
- Brenda Warner, to ask if he could come over Kurt's house and play next weekend
- Terrell Owens, to ask how his offseason is going
- Eagles fans who were shouting for Kevin Kolb during the season
- Donovan's mom, asking her to have a bowl of Campbell's Chunky ready for him after the game
The only question left is: How much will the fine be?
