Waiting for McNabb

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- After spending an hour and a half staking out Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb at the back entrance of the Cundey House on the Lehigh University campus, I finally accomplished my goal. McNabb was gracious enough to give me 10 minutes, so the interview that I'll be posting shortly is sort of a scattershooting session in which we covered topics ranging from T.O. to McNabb's steadfast belief that the Eagles are the best team in the NFC.

While waiting for McNabb to emerge, I talked to Jon Runyan, Lito Sheppard and Correll Buckhalter (found out we're neighbors in Dallas). Prepare yourself for an afternoon of Eagles coverage. I'm blogging live from Deja Brew Coffee House in downtown Bethlehem, where you can get a Chuck Bednarik sandwich with roast beef, peppered turkey, American cheese, onions and horseradish on a Kaiser roll. I'm sitting below the classic photo of Bednarik standing over Frank Gifford's motionless body appearing to taunt him.

Bednarik actually stopped by the coffee house two weeks ago and ordered the Bednarik. I'm told his wife had a Bednarik on rye.
