Many thanks to the good folks at RedLasso for passing me the link to the pre-game segment on ESPN which detailed Eagles safety Brian Dawkins' borderline embarrassing fanboy obsession with the Marvel Comics character Wolverine.
Did I say borderline embarrassing? I meant to say completely and unambiguously bizarre. Click the video below if you don't believe it. It's one thing to play make-believe during a live NFL game (in which Dawk likes to pretend he's a superhero); it's quite another to have a separate stall in the team locker room for your dolls. Still, since it's Dawk, we'll all pretend it isn't actually that bad.
Let's hope Dawk heals like Wolverine; the Birds are going to need him against Detroit.
