Donovan McNabb certainly has read and seen enough to know that his long-term future isnt as the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins. The likely Hall of Famer isnt sitting idle, however, and it has nothing to do with the NFL lockout.
McNabb will be serving as an in-studio host for Comcast SportsNets first-round coverage of the NCAA tournament. And hes no interloping Donovan-come-lately to this game. Chicagoan McNabb played for Syracuse from 1995-97, as a guard, if you can imagine that; if he always seems to have some quicks afoot, now you know why.
McNabb will be doing some hits on Washingtons edition of our SportsNet Central beginning Thursday.
And speaking of hoops.
If you havent jumped into our Comcast SportsNets Bracket Challenge 2011, you need to. Great prizes (including an iPad2 so you wont have to wait in line somewhere) and you also can match picks with Marty Turco, Ryan Dempster, Mark Buehrle and a to-be-named Bull. Check it out.
But be forewarned: Youre also picking against the likes of me, and I am a defending champion (thats pronounced Cham-PEEN) and on the ever-sage advice of my two-time Buckeye daughter Jenny, have gone chalk and anointed Ohio State as the national champion.
What Im saying here is that youre all working at second place.
