I did not know that...

Donovan McNabb has had an interesting season.  He was benched - and that led to his resurgence. He didn't know a game could end in a tie - and that led to them making the playoffs at 9-6-1.  And then on Sunday he gave up a safety on a play that should have led to a loss, but didn't.
 
And, as it turns out, his team winning this weekend helped the Dolphins in a small way.  Miami moved from the 26th pick in the draft to the 25th, because Philly remained in the playoffs longer.
 
And naturally, he had to call Parcells to say "you're welcome...but I didn't know I could do that."

I liked this story

I ran into a guy this week who told me a story.  He's a "service guy" and comes into contact with many current and former Dolphins. 

I was at the Ravens playoff game last weekend, and toward the end of the game, my friends and I were were really booing Chad Pennington.
 
On Monday morning, I picked up my list of jobs, and first on the list was a new client: Chad Pennington. 
 
I went to Chad's house, and did the job, but not without some good natured ribbing.  Chad was as nice as could be and had a good sense of humor about it all.  He wished he would have played better, too.
 
As I finish, he hands me a little tip for the job.  I reach into my pocket, take out the ticket stub from the game, and say "wow thank you...you refunded the money I paid for the game, after that performance yesterday!"
 
And that got Chad laughing.
