Donovan McNabb upset people think he puked in the Super Bowl

McNabb Getty Images

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb did not throw up in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XXXIX. No one at the game saw him throw up. No one watching the game at home saw him throw up. It didn’t happen.

But there’s a persistent myth that McNabb puked in the Super Bowl, and when he was asked about it on Reddit, he took umbrage.

No, I didn’t puke. It’s unfortunate that we still talk about this 11 years after playing in the Super Bowl. But, no. That did not happen and hopefully we can stop talking about it. Once again, go watch the game tape,” McNabb wrote.

So where did the myth come from? It seems to be a combination of the fact that McNabb did throw up on the field in a regular season game once, and the fact that teammates discussed how exhausted McNabb was while trying to lead the Eagles down the field late in that Super Bowl loss to the Patriots. Over time, those two separate incidents have morphed into one.

It’s fair to criticize McNabb for the end of that Super Bowl, as his old teammate Terrell Owens did: Owens has pointed out that McNabb looked tired late in the game and struggled to move in the two-minute offense, and Owens is right about that. But we should put to rest the old myth about McNabb. He didn’t puke.

    Who is this Donovan McNabb you speak of?

  2. jnks10 says: Feb 11, 2016 7:17 AM

    Why can’t you just shut up. Every year you have to say something else typos. The video shows you liking and even the people in Philly haven’t talked about it in years so who the heck is “talking about it”.

  3. kneedragr says: Feb 11, 2016 7:17 AM

    Who cares if he puked or not, there is no shame in puking. He let his team down with his poor conditioning, thats what he should be ashamed of.

  4. mt10425 says: Feb 11, 2016 7:21 AM

    Who cares. It’s pathetic to keep trying to be relevant.

  5. araidersfan says: Feb 11, 2016 7:21 AM

    Times have changed. It used to be a badge of honor for someone famous (especially rock musicians) to puke on stage.

  6. rhamrhoddy says: Feb 11, 2016 7:22 AM

    I know Andy Reid catches alotta grief about late-game time management but it’s fair to wonder if what appeared to be lollygagging at the end of that game was more a case of him giving Donovan time to rest. Or maybe it was a little bit of both.

  7. rjpats says: Feb 11, 2016 7:22 AM

    He at least metaphorically threw up all over himself

  8. sonhoodoo says: Feb 11, 2016 7:31 AM

    What should bother him more is his performance at the end of the SB.

  9. nhpats says: Feb 11, 2016 7:34 AM

    Cmon Donovan….man up…..you puked.

  10. ozzman64 says: Feb 11, 2016 7:35 AM

    I guess we shouldn’t believe our lying eyes.

  11. tooz72 says: Feb 11, 2016 7:36 AM

    well, you are a drunk

  12. fugginswheat says: Feb 11, 2016 7:37 AM

    Freddie Mitchell was the one who went on record saying he threw up in the huddle?

  13. nenlain says: Feb 11, 2016 7:39 AM

    Miss ya 5. It hasn’t been the same here without you.

  14. leroyquimby says: Feb 11, 2016 7:40 AM

    What is the difference? T.O. and McNabb lost the only SB they ever played. Maybe if they could have acted like adults then they would have had different careers.

  15. stellarperformance says: Feb 11, 2016 7:41 AM

    Too late. It’s become urban legend. It’s like Richard Gere and the gerbil. It doesn’t matter if it really happened…..it’s true to us!

  16. npgman says: Feb 11, 2016 7:43 AM

    He threw up in the car after the game, drunk and slumped over the steering wheel.

  17. jimnsota says: Feb 11, 2016 7:43 AM

    Dry heaves?

  18. thesmartest1 says: Feb 11, 2016 7:45 AM

    He should be upset over his DUI’s. Throwing to the other team was bad too. Oh yeah, and you threw up.

  19. touchdownroddywhite says: Feb 11, 2016 7:48 AM

    It makes sense that he didn’t throw up. I’ve never seen anybody puke and choke at the same time.

  20. MichaelEdits says: Feb 11, 2016 7:51 AM

    Some people may have puked watching him in the Super Bowl, but that’s a different issue.

  21. trustno1 says: Feb 11, 2016 7:51 AM

    well, you are a major drunk, Donovan

  22. iandemartino says: Feb 11, 2016 7:52 AM

    You guys remember when Donovan did a Reddit AMA and puked on the keyboard after TO asked a question?

    At least, I think I remember that happening. Isn’t that what happened? During the Reddit AMA Super bowl?

    Something like that.

  23. JMClarkent says: Feb 11, 2016 7:53 AM

    At least two of his teammates (John Ritchie and Lito Sheppard) have publicly said that Donovan puked in the Superbowl.

    I think I’ll defer to the witnesses in this situation.

  24. idpfantasyfootball says: Feb 11, 2016 7:55 AM

    “I love it. Throw up and then throw a touchdown.”

    -Donovan McNabb, August, 2014

  25. iandemartino says: Feb 11, 2016 7:56 AM

    “I know Andy Reid catches alotta grief about late-game time management but it’s fair to wonder if what appeared to be lollygagging at the end of that game was more a case of him giving Donovan time to rest. Or maybe it was a little bit of both.”

    ——————————-

    You are right in that if the Eagles win that game, our perception of Reid would be much more favorable, but don’t forget, he has a longer history of failing in big moments than just that one game.

  26. baddegg says: Feb 11, 2016 7:57 AM

    OK, you just peed down your leg at the end of the game.

    There, is that better?

  27. Great Caesar's Ghost says: Feb 11, 2016 8:01 AM

    Not a fan of McNabb, but this was indeed an Owens-spun myth perpetuated by media. A year or two later on a Monday night game, McNabb called a time out, and John Madden remarked, “I think Donovan McNabb’s tired.”

  28. ragnarthegreat says: Feb 11, 2016 8:02 AM

    Actually I thought this was true and was impressed seeing it as someone giving everything they had to win the game. In this case knowing it is not true would actually would detract from my opinion of him. but that is pretty hard to do since I am a Vikings fan and watched his games in purple including the one with 4 yard passing in the first half that ushered in the Christian Ponder era. Not a big fan.

  29. namriverrat69 says: Feb 11, 2016 8:03 AM

    What is wrong with puking in a game? I watched Drew Pearson catch a touchdown pass for Dallas years ago and he got layed out drilled . He got up in the end zone, bent over from the waist and blew about a whole bottle of orange gatorade through his face mask. He then walked off the field celebrating the touchdown.

    So Donavan McNabb claims to be a girly man. Good for him. The only person who would have thought less of him for puking is Donavan McNabb.

  30. shlort says: Feb 11, 2016 8:04 AM

    Seems to me there was video of him puking back then. I recall him stepping away from the huddle and puking. It was a big deal in the media right after the super bowl. Could it have been media lies? Please don’t tell me the media misleads and lies to the people! 😄

  31. youngs79 says: Feb 11, 2016 8:05 AM

    He threw the best bounce passes, the only problem was, wrong sport.

  32. orivar says: Feb 11, 2016 8:07 AM

    It was more on Andy than McNabb. If you look at his stats McNabb had no issues with 4th quarter comebacks and game winning drives. Anyways even if it did happen it wouldn’t be relevant. Throwing up happens in football, anybody that’s played beyond highschool knows that. You do it somewhere on the sidelines, chug some water, and keep on going.

  33. 666undead says: Feb 11, 2016 8:11 AM

    Maybe he merely choked. (Then he puked).

  34. davebarnes21 says: Feb 11, 2016 8:11 AM

    Patriot Reign!

  35. stoopidfool says: Feb 11, 2016 8:11 AM

    yes…he didn’t puke

    which is why they call him ‘Captain Dry-Heave’

  36. whatjusthapped says: Feb 11, 2016 8:16 AM

    No, sadly, he just sucked.

  37. bullcharger says: Feb 11, 2016 8:17 AM

    He can’t stop drinking and driving, yet he’s worried about if people think he yakked in the Super Bowl?

    I think maybe he has his priorities mixed up.

  38. orivar says: Feb 11, 2016 8:18 AM

    And reading the posts he actually said some really profound things on the AMA. I know PFT is like a blog but it’s actually a good read. Like this reply to if he wonders how history will judge him,

    “When you go through life, there’s no need for you to ever look back and wonder what one man or what one woman may think of the things that you have accomplished, or maybe things you haven’t accomplished. It’s really all on self confidence and being secure in yourself. We all have hurdles, we all have obstacles that we’re faced with. But really it’s all on you and how you’re able to overcome those adversities.”

  39. joetoronto says: Feb 11, 2016 8:22 AM

    “No, I didn’t puke. It’s unfortunate that we still talk about this 11 years after playing in the Super Bowl. But, no. That did not happen and hopefully we can stop talking about it. Once again, go watch the game tape,” McNabb wrote.

    No, that’s Ok. I think I’ll pass.

    Something was coming out of his mouth when he was bent over, just saying.

  40. It Takes 2 Mannings To Equal One Brady says: Feb 11, 2016 8:22 AM

    I don’t think there is any mystery to where the myth came from. Anyone who has come to PFT and read the comments section knows that “facts” are statements made up by someone in the comments. And then repeated over and over and over

  41. punksinplay says: Feb 11, 2016 8:26 AM

    Maybe he didn’t puke but he did choke.

  42. speakadatrut says: Feb 11, 2016 8:32 AM

    Donovan, NO ONE CARES! That is all.

  43. hahalolrofl says: Feb 11, 2016 8:32 AM

    At least he answered the question.

  44. cburmester85 says: Feb 11, 2016 8:34 AM

    Donovan McNabb has puked at the game of life… Not just the Super Bowl.

  45. collectordude says: Feb 11, 2016 8:35 AM

    Why? At least he’ll be remembered for something.

  46. Mo Pro Babble says: Feb 11, 2016 8:39 AM

    What I recall was Eagles fans claiming he puked because he was sick. It was being used as an excuse. He was being given credit for playing even though he was sick. Truth is that on that day, that was as much as McNabb had to offer and he gave it all. Clock management notwithstanding, they lost to a superior team.

    The Pats lost 2 SBs to the Giants. Both were a result of NE’s D not being able to close the deal. No other excuses, save for a few lame comments about “in the grasp” by a few lame fans have ever been offered.

  47. TheDPR says: Feb 11, 2016 8:41 AM

    He puked during a timeout at Syracuse, came back on to the field and won the game for them. I saw it as a GOOD thing, not a negative.

    As for the time management, I think we’ve seen in the years since, that that’s ALL on Andy Reid who STILL hasn’t learned the basic skill that most fans understand.

  48. The Truth says: Feb 11, 2016 8:42 AM

    Tony Romo > Donovan McNabb

  49. levanderwilliams says: Feb 11, 2016 8:43 AM

    Sorry Don, but ALL of your teammates said you DID! I’ll believe them over you any day.

  50. rjmarrella says: Feb 11, 2016 8:43 AM

    Center Hank Fraley broke the story the day after the Super Bowl on Daily News Live (csnphilly at the time) and said in an interview that Mcnabb threw up in the huddle.

  51. excusemewhileiwhipthisoutagain says: Feb 11, 2016 8:46 AM

    He played like puke at the of his career.

  52. pleazenufalready says: Feb 11, 2016 8:48 AM

    puke….choke…..semantics

  53. tattooit says: Feb 11, 2016 8:52 AM

    Why to late. This horse left the barn years ago. It will be the same for Brady and the Cheater label. He’s branded.

    What do they say? Print the myth?

  54. salmen76 says: Feb 11, 2016 8:53 AM

    Oh he puked. I saw it on TV and Owens said he did after the game. McNabb and Newton are Super Bowl losers. They have ‘zero’ SB rings among them. Eli has 2 all by himself. I knew McNabb would never win a SB and I know Newton won’t either. Geaux Saints!

  55. scorpiodsu says: Feb 11, 2016 8:53 AM

    McNabb was gassed at the end of that Super Bowl. On the drive in question they were running a hurry up offense and he was getting hit by defensive players nearly every play. Teddy B. flattened him on the play right before he supposedly threw up. However, on that same drive he threw a TD. Its a shame the thing that didn’t happen gets remembered more than the things that did.

  56. guachosporlife says: Feb 11, 2016 8:57 AM

    No, he pukes only when he drinks.

  57. smokehouse56 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:00 AM

    The Eagles are still the only team to beat a Vince Lombardi team for the NFL championship.

  58. wedemboyz88 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:01 AM

    Puke, choke in this case what’s the difference?

  59. syrnyg says: Feb 11, 2016 9:11 AM

    I watched that game, Mcnabb was criticized for not going no huddle; If anyone remembers that game, he was running for his life for 4 QTRs including the drive where he took almost 5 minutes to bring the Eagles within a score. He was sacked 4 times, and the Eagles couldn’t run the ball at all… People can argue TO would have been MVP if they had won that game, but if they didn’t have Mcnabb at QB who was more mobile than most QB’s during those years, they would not have even been in that game. The Pats were a nightmare for the Eagles O-line and were probably not even playing the run. Mcnabb had every right to be tired and dry heave, throw up or whatever.. It seemed like he ran more than the WR’s and running backs during that game to avoid sacks… it was ridiculous. Criticize Mcnabb? How about criticizing that crappy offensive line, which was the reason he was tired.

  60. delcodonny says: Feb 11, 2016 9:11 AM

    “McNabb did throw up on the field in a regular season game once” at Tampa 06, at Jacksonville 02, Florida state 1998. Superbowl vs New England. Seems a lot more than once. Get your facts straight!!!

  61. pourman says: Feb 11, 2016 9:14 AM

    Yes, he did.

  62. eagles1960 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:14 AM

    You choked and puked. We saw it.

  63. RegisHawk says: Feb 11, 2016 9:17 AM

    It makes sense that he didn’t throw up. I’ve never seen anybody puke and choke at the same time.

    Well, there was that one drummer for Spinal Tap…

    In McNabb’s defense, he is often mistaken for Screamin’ Willie Beamen…

  64. bigsam64 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:17 AM

    the video shows him puking (or it was the biggest hocker ever)

  65. artvan15 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:19 AM

    Why would puking be bad on the field unless you are a puke?

  66. babyjunkie says: Feb 11, 2016 9:24 AM

    I seen’t it.

  67. tx526 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:24 AM

    He didn’t puke. He choked.

  68. ivydude81 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:25 AM

    Lito Sheppard and Jon Ritchie say otherwise.

  69. tylawspick6 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:39 AM

    He definitely puked. Maybe if the tool just admitted it, no one would bring it up?

  70. corky2141 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:47 AM

    He was a closet drunk when he played, which was the reason he was not in peak condition & now that he has been out of the game for a while it has shown with his two DUIs

    And he puked

  71. tjacks7 says: Feb 11, 2016 9:52 AM

    All I know is that McNabb is the only starting QB I’ve ever seen pulled from a game while healthy, down 6 points, with 1:50 left in the 4th quarter because of his “cardiovascular endurance”. That is more embarrassing than puking.

  72. laserw says: Feb 11, 2016 9:54 AM

    Whether Donovan McNubb blew chunks or whether his performance blew chunks is really the same thing. The fat QB simply was gassed and was useless. Or he choked.

    If the spoiled brat cheater named Cam Cheating can learn anything as a 26 year old child, then he should see that you are never guaranteed a return to the Super Bowl. There is no point being healthy after the Super Bowl if you could have saved the game for your team by responding like a mature adult.

  73. chesswhileyouplaycheckers says: Feb 11, 2016 9:58 AM

    Whether or not he did it in the literally he and Reid both certainly did it figuratively

  74. rainsarge says: Feb 11, 2016 9:59 AM

    The Eagles faced one of the strongest Pats teams ever and made a game of it but lost to a much better team. Why are we talking about this?

  75. cafetero1075 says: Feb 11, 2016 10:03 AM

    Didn’t Shanahan bench him for being out of shape, he should of been a harder worker, that’s why he was just a good QB and nothing more.

  77. Getoffmylawn! says: Feb 11, 2016 10:15 AM

    I believe that he didn’t throw up in the Super Bowl. I did see him throw down at the feet of his receivers all day though.

  78. arktikman says: Feb 11, 2016 10:24 AM

    If McNabb puked in the forrest, does it make a sound?

  80. liftheavyorliftheavy says: Feb 11, 2016 10:37 AM

    Didn’t puke, just choked.

  81. Rdog says: Feb 11, 2016 10:42 AM

    We should consider the source of this rumor: Terrell Owens. Never afraid to throw teammates under the bus. Always a bad teammate. Screw him.

    I was always a Donovan McNabb fan, so it sucks to see that he still gets hated on to this day. …it also sucks to see him get a DUI…

  82. eagles512 says: Feb 11, 2016 11:12 AM

  84. dave399 says: Feb 11, 2016 11:13 AM

    I could have sworn that I saw a video clip of the Super Bowl highlights on TV (not some altered internet video), definitely from the Super Bowl, of McNabb lifting his helmet by the face mask and puking right on the field.

    I’m more interested in him clearing up whether or not he knew that NFL games could end in ties.

    He once stated that he never knew that a game could end in a tie. Then everybody in sports news ran with it. Sounds unlikely. Most armchair, casual fans know that regular season games can end in ties. It usually happens once every couple of seasons.

    He had to have been sarcastic when he said that. No?

  85. Patskrieg says: Feb 11, 2016 11:18 AM

    He’d probably have an easier time clearing this up if his teammates in the huddle would stop telling people he puked.

  86. realdealsteel says: Feb 11, 2016 11:20 AM

    McNabb is an idiot. It’s on film; everyone saw it; T.O. even said he did it; no other players have disputed it.

    So shut up and live with your legacy McNabb.

  87. thegonz13 says: Feb 11, 2016 11:25 AM

  89. fshman00 says: Feb 11, 2016 11:30 AM

    Players from that team in the huddle said he puked. Jon Runyan for one when he was on WIP.

  90. arnoldziffel says: Feb 11, 2016 11:32 AM

    I have that game recorded and went back and looked at the end of the fourth quarter.

    In between plays when he’s bent over looking at the ground – what’s that coming out of his face mask? .. snot?

    If it is … it’s a quart bottle of the stuff.

  91. dwarftosser says: Feb 11, 2016 11:33 AM

    ….go away Donavan….no one cares about u anymore.

  93. truetrue85 says: Feb 11, 2016 11:41 AM

    Who cares if he did, I mean really? McNabb gave my Pats everything he had that day and I was uneasy until Rodney Harrison came down with that interception with less than a minute on the clock. I don’t know why everybody likes to knock McNabb, he was a great quarterback and many forget he put up huge numbers throwing to a bunch of nobodies for the better part of his career. Move on and leave the man alone.

  94. youbettercallsaul says: Feb 11, 2016 11:50 AM

    I thought choking and puking was something you did after eating at Dennys’ or Chipotle?

    Donovan will be forever linked with that. As another poster said about Richard Gere and the gerbil.

    Yet another reason they will be known as the Futilidelphia Eagles.

    He only pukes driving drunk now🙂

  98. jaxon51 says: Feb 11, 2016 12:05 PM

    McNabb didn’t puke until 2007 when Roger destroyed all the evidence in Foxboro that would explain why NE ran a screen play every time Philly blitzed and why NE defense knew what McNabb called in the huddle.
    Roger is making us all vomit with Deflategate stuff here in 2015/16 and he surely made us all vomit in 2007. Shame on you Roger – I agree GoodellMustGo.. Goodell must go…

  99. thefatlazygamer says: Feb 11, 2016 12:09 PM

    Given his history he may not have puked but I bet he played the game with a hang over.

  100. projectshadow316 says: Feb 11, 2016 12:14 PM

    He didn’t puke. We get it.

    Let’s see him deny that he didn’t choke, though.

  101. freevinnycurry says: Feb 11, 2016 12:17 PM

    Maybe that’s what did it, too much Chunky soup served under the bleachers by mom.

    Puked on the field?

    More like, pooped in the bed.

    But really, who cares?

    It wasn’t that you puked on the biggest stage Donovan…….

    It was that you CHOKED on the biggest stage…

  112. bobbyhoying says: Feb 11, 2016 2:27 PM

    From the stands it looked like he may have which gave Owens’ account credibility.

  113. Rdog says: Feb 11, 2016 2:38 PM

    If this were any other player, we would praise them for a gutsy performance, playing until they puked… Especially if they had won.

  114. nullaereale says: Feb 11, 2016 3:06 PM

    You didn’t puke literally but figuratively you threw up all over yourself in those last two minutes.

  115. onermedboxer says: Feb 11, 2016 3:18 PM

    As a Bucs fan, I remember the “puke game” quite well for a number of reasons, one being that McNabb barfed after a long scramble into the red zone late in the game.

    But the real reason I remember it is that Matt Bryant hit a 62-yeard field goal to win the game.

    Will his HOF bust have vomit on it?

  117. fieldysnuts says: Feb 11, 2016 3:24 PM

    He did throw up at a game in Jacksonville, which is the same place the Super Bowl was played at that year. So maybe they got those games confused. The game was really hot in Jax that day.

  118. MrcsJsn says: Feb 11, 2016 3:29 PM

    Well, they were playing the Patriots so clearly they must have cheated to cause McNabb to puke. Or they didn’t. Maybe it was just another Belichick Jedi mind trick? Either way, they’re clearly guilty and should have more draft picks taken away.

    Funny Deal is people call him sorry. But he has better career numbers than
    Troy Aikman
    Jim Kelly and
    Steve Young

    Couple with the fact ALL of his career with the exception on 1 YR, he never had a Mike Irvin/Andre Reed/ or a Jerry Rice(TO) to throw to years on end like these guys. No stud Arab either. He also rushed for darn near 4000 yards. I think people are a little short sighted on McNabb and what he was. Dude was a stud.

  120. aldaviswastheman says: Feb 11, 2016 3:34 PM

    He did not puke…HE CHOKED…not that it is relevant at this point.

  121. daytontriangles says: Feb 11, 2016 3:38 PM

    So, what you were really doing on the field during that game was choking not puking.

  122. gregmorris78 says: Feb 11, 2016 3:42 PM

    Yes he did

  123. kevpft says: Feb 11, 2016 3:42 PM

    I’ve respected Terrell Owens ever since that game. No matter what he says or does or what antics he’s been involved in, he put in a superheroic effort in that game. He pretty much carried the team and willed them to the brink of winning the game. His team didn’t deserve a Super Bowl win that day, but Owens did.

    It’s like he was the only Eagle on the field with a sense of urgency and gravity. The gap in that regard between him and McNabb and the coaches was so noticeable.

  124. scottbrowning2 says: Feb 11, 2016 4:00 PM

    Big deal. Seriously, athletes puke all the time. The combination of extreme effort and pressure takes a toll. Its heroic when they battle on. Honestly, whether or not McNabb puked in that game never figured into my estimation of his performance or his ability as an athlete. If he puked its nothing to be ashamed of. If he didn’t? Well maybe you could argue he should have been trying harder. This is a non-issue.

  125. Marcus says: Feb 11, 2016 4:05 PM

    I could care less if he puked. He played a terrible game while the rest of the team played well enough to win.

    T.O. played a hell of a game, and had they pulled out a win would’ve been MVP.

    McNabb kept throwing picks. That’s why they lost.

  126. gassiusclay says: Feb 11, 2016 4:51 PM

    He puked in college during his bowl games (especially the NYE bowl game against KState in 98)…and yes, he puked in this game too. He puked in big games, right before he choked

  127. allseeingone says: Feb 11, 2016 5:21 PM

    Actually the way he played made me puke.

  128. bluewinger says: Feb 11, 2016 5:29 PM

    Did he have an anxiety attack then???

  129. pfatalbert says: Feb 11, 2016 6:12 PM

    Since it was just Gatorade and wasn’t technically vomit, in his mind, then he didn’t puke.

  130. tortorellasucks says: Feb 11, 2016 6:12 PM

    the Real Issue with McPuke is he was out of shape, He had puked in games previously. At the end of a game in Jacksonville the year before he puked, and he was clearly overweight and struggling to pick up the pace when it mattered most for the Eagles in the Super Bowl against New England. He truly believes he is a Hall Of Fame QB which is a joke, he never passed the eye test in games as a Hall Of Famer. He never carried a team on his back to a championship, in fact he came up so small in big games that this will be the legacy he carries into history, NOT the Hall Of Fame. Stats never tell the entire story, especially in Football.

  131. rajbais says: Feb 12, 2016 7:48 PM

    Puking is not a new thing for Donovan. I get the feeling he likely ruined a car or two the nights he was pulled over for a DUI.

  132. bubba703 says: Feb 18, 2016 5:27 PM

    One would think McNabb should be more upset about how poorly he played at the end of that game than denying he barfed. It seems clear that the Vomiteer has some ego issues.
