Months ago, Lil Wayne expressed his hope that he’d be able to keep up with sports while serving his yearlong prison sentence at Rikers Island. Apparently, the wish of Birdman Jr. — who actually has a tattoo of the ESPN logo — has been fulfilled. On Wednesday (April 14), Wayne updated his new blog, WeezyThanxYou.com, with his latest observations.
First up, Wayne says he thinks the Philadelphia Eagles dropped the ball by trading star QB Donovan McNabb to division rivals the Washington Redskins.
“McNabb to the Skins … wow!” he says in the blog (whose curator gave MTV News a sneak peek at the post). “I think this will be a great thing for all involved, except the Eagles. One reason is because I don’t think Andy Reid was ready to part ways with the soon-to-be 34-year-old veteran. He still had a year left on paper with the Eagles. And though I don’t think they would’ve given him an extension, for some reason I think Andy would’ve liked to see Donovan play it out. I don’t think he was the brains behind that move. I think this was above him.”
