Eagles QB McNabb Says Good-Bye to Michael Jackson


Eagles QB Donovan McNabb paid his respects today to Michael Jackson, one day after the “King of Pop” died in Los Angeles at the age of 50. Below is what McNabb had to say about Jackson on his personal blog over on Yardbarker:

“Like most of the rest of the world I am devastated by the news of Michael Jackson’s death. Ironically, I am in Los Angeles for a few days between shooting a commercial and attending a teammate’s wedding this weekend. Those who have followed my career know that I am a huge fan of the King of Pop. After many of my touchdowns, I have moonwalked or mimicked some of his moves – before you get ready to criticize those moves on a post, know that even I understand I couldn’t hold a candle to Michael when it comes to dancing.

My dances were a mere tribute to Michael’s unbelievable ability to entertain. Many times we are reminded at someone’s death that ‘there will never be another one like him/her.’ In this case, those words couldn’t be more true. My condolences go out to his children, his immediate family, and his extended family of millions around the world.”

The wedding McNabb made reference to in the blog is that of WR Hank Baskett and former Playboy playmate Kendra Wilkinson.

    Im a big fan of MJ and New York Giants too…I live in Mexico and obviously for those reasons i know perfectly why Donovan feels sad… just like me…

    MJ was part of the NFL in some moments in the last 20 years, with a Halftime Super Bowl Show and many players dancing like him after a good play. And a Baltimore WR Michael Jackson too… remember?

    ALWAYS THE KING!
