    Donovan McNabb on life after football and what the NFL taught him about life

    Donovan McNabb on life after football and what the NFL taught him about life

    Donovan McNabb played 13 years in the NFL and was the first NFL quarterback ever to throw for more than 30 touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions in a season. He's best known for his time with the Philadelphia Eagles where he was a 6-time Pro Bowler, but he also played for the Washington Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings. We talk about how he started to make the transition to life after football after just a few seasons in the league. He's 43 years old now and we talk about the other quarterbacks in their 40s who are still playing; Tom Brady and Drew Brees. He also gets into the life lessons that football taught him that we can all apply to our lives, whether you're an athlete or not. I'm sure you will enjoy this insightful conversation as much as I did!

Eddie Barron ,

I love Pro Wrestling Tees

First time writing a review. My name is Eddie, I listen to your podcast all the time. So hard to pick which one is my favorite. Been watching wrestling since I was 7 or 8 and been watching it ever since. I’m 32 now and wrestling has evolved. I watch them all AAA, WWE , WCW, ROH, NJPW, AEW, CMLL, Impact, MLW, CZW, PWG and to name some more. I think it’s cool you get to interview these great athletes and talk about the in ring and out ring life of a wrestler. I visited Pro Wrestling Tee back in 2018 where Tenile Dashwood did a meet and greet. I’m for Central California and I was visiting family in Chicago and they didn’t know it existed until I told them. The staff are very polite and helpful. They printed out shirt that wasn’t out on display that I wanted. So many shirts to pick out. I go every year I visit except for this year due to the pandemic. Sorry for this long review but I’m a big wrestling fan and want to say you’re doing a great job with your podcast. A podcast by a wrestling fan for wrestling fans. Thank you for your time
