McNabb: "How would you handle the boos?"

Donovan McNabb's football camp over the weekend provided another chance for D.C. reporters to ask him questions about life in Philly. He still has yet to crack and reveal the snowball-shaped, vomit-encrusted, taser-branded emotional scars, but the AP's Joseph White got a bit of soul-searching, at least.

"When things are great, obviously we're the first ones to receive the attention," McNabb said. "But when things go wrong, we're the first ones to receive the negativity. And that's one thing that people don't want to be a part of. You know, they may talk about, 'Man, if I was like Donovan or I was in his shoes, blah blah blah, I would do this or do that.'

"Yeah, but if you were in my shoes how would you handle the boos? How would you handle the criticism? How would you handle you winning but still getting dogged on the TV or the media?""

McNabb also provided the obligatory "loved my time in Philly" quotes, though he accidentally said that he was named after kids and dogs. He meant the reverse.

"I had a lot of fun here in Philadelphia," he said. "I met a lot of good people, built a lot of friendships....Kids been named after me, dogs been named after me, and people have just come up to say they really, truly appreciate what I've been able to do."

McNabb also held his seventh (and final) White Party in Philly over the weekend. As with any party hosted by a D.C. athlete, Biz Markie was the DJ.
