Be nice if the segment ends up online like on youtube or something, as I don't watch sports less for baseball. :)

HA! Ok..I wasn't the only one thinking of making that joke. Is it sad that when I saw the thread title, I immeadiatly thought of Super Pro?

I like the good press comics is getting lately. Seeing "cool" people associate themselves with comics is awesome.

Agreed. We need to get the youtube warmed up and ready for searching.

Yeah, B-Dawk's nickname is Weapon-X. He's a HUGE Wolverine nut. If I still was a regular at getting Eagles' autographs like when I was a kid, I'd have gotten him a sketch or Wolvie by someone at one of the cons.

I've read articles about Dawkins' love of Wolverine before in SI and ESPN the Magazine and I think MNF did a bit on him. He even calls himself Weapon X...

If you watch him, you can recognize the comic book poses.

Part of me feels like it's promoting a stereotype of comic books, but I guess if they show that a football player likes them......

Any word on if this will also be shown on the local ABC affiliate in Philadelphia and Washington, since they can still see the games on ABC? I'm asking because my HDTV only gets broadcast, my cable is on the SDTV (I know, I know)

I think he still owes money around Kansas City... and he may go to jail for not making child support payments.

The pre-game show will still be on ESPN.
