The hostile Philadelphia crowd booed Donovan McNabb the moment he walked onto the field. The booing lasted for a minimum of ten minutes, during which the crowd echoed a profanity-laced chant, threw batteries onto the field, and kicked Santa Claus.
No wait. That’s just what the media so DESPERATELY wanted.
In reality, Donovan McNabb received a standing ovation in his much-anticipated return to Philadelphia. A sellout crowd at Lincoln Financial Field rose to their feet and applauded the longest-tenured quarterback in Philadelphia Eagles history.
Notorious Philadelphia hater Joe Buck called it a “wonderful and overwhelming” reception.
Once the game began, the booing was merciless, which is to be expected. After all, McNabb is a member of the Washington Redskins.
