Eagles still soaring

An interesting weekend of sport saw Rubens Barrichello claim first place in the 2002 US Grand Prix and thus clinch second place in the 2002 World Championship. However, of more interest to me was the 35-17 victory of the Philadelphia Eagles over the Houston Texans at Veteran's Stadium in Philadelphia. This followed an announcement that the Eagles quarterback, Donovan McNabb, has signed a 12-year, $115 million extension to his contract. In my opinion, McNabb is one of the most exciting players in the National Football League and probably one of the strongest quarterbacks in recent times. His ability to shrug off tackles and come up with trick plays is astounding. After a wobbly start, the Eagles have won three games in a row and look like serious contenders.
