Well played, Eagles.
The football team, usually not known for embracing the past and honoring its former players, did a great thing today. Brian Dawkins was honored at press conference, where he was signed to a one-day contract to retire an Eagle. Many current and former players were in attendance, including Michael Vick… and Donovan McNabb, whose personality must have hovered somewhere between jealous and fucking enraged as he watched a safety receive a sendoff that he most-likely thought should have been given to him.
Anyway, Dawkins inadvertently (apparently) skipped over McNabb when hugging his peers during the event, but the Eagles state media czar, Dave Spadaro, was quick to tweet out a picture of the two embracing after the press conference:
Here is the must-watch video the Eagles put together for Dawkins (you'd think maybe they'd make these free PR clips embeddable…).
