Bernard Hopkins is one of the greatest boxers of his generation and a Philly guy taboot. We'd probably hold him in a much higher regard, however, if he didn't consistently feel the need to pick on Donovan McNabb. What exactly Hopkins has against McNabb is unclear, but B-Hop has waged a verbal assault on Donovan for years, so it was no surprise to see him do it again on Tuesday as he tried to gain buzz for his upcoming fight.
In the past, Hopkins had most criticized McNabb's inability to win the Super Bowl, but yesterday he attacked Donovan for apparently not being black enough.
From the Daily News:
"Forget this," Hopkins said, pointing to his own dark skin. "He's got a suntan. That's all."
I believe that is meant as an insult of some sort, but I always thought people looked nice with a suntan.
Hopkins continued on some Uncle Tom levels.
"Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy
in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He's the one who
got the extra coat. The extra servings. 'You're our boy,' " Hopkins
said, patting a reporter on the back in illustration. "He thought he was
one of them."
To me, Hopkins has some strange vendetta against McNabb, perhaps because he was the star of stars in this city while the Executioner was just kind of an afterthought. Aside from picking some strange fight, B-Hop probably just wants some attention for his title bout.
Sadly, we just gave it to him for the wrong reasons.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.
Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.
Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.
Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.
Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
