The Donovan McNabb Prank

Jordan LanningCorrespondent IJanuary 22, 2009

If your favorite NFL team is going to the Super Bowl and you are ecstatic out of your mind, what do you do?

For Rex Perkins and Ryan Hanlon, it is vandalize Donovan McNabb's home.

All of this took place at McNabb's off-season house in Chandler, Ariz. Last Thursday, Perkins and Hanlon hung an Arizona Cardinals flag on McNabb's property. McNabb noticed it and laughed it off, he even let it stay there for the day.

The Cardinals fans returned and left a cardboard box on McNabb's drive way saying "Beat Philly" on one side and "Go Cards" on the other. What does McNabb do this time? He once again laughs it off.

But on that Saturday morning McNabb's smile was turned upside down when he started to smell diesel fuel and realized someone had burned Cardinals cheers on his lawn. There was $2,000 worth of damage.

Chandler Police Sgt. Joe Favazzo was able to catch the pranksters when he discovered a label on the cardboard box that was left on McNabb's driveway.

Rex Perkins and Ryan Hanlon confessed to doing the pranks. They were photographed, fingerprinted, and cited for misdemeanor criminal charges.

So pranksters out there, if I were you, I wouldn't be messing with Donovan McNabb's home any longer.
