Always Sunny Podcast: When Donovan McNabb Became "Donny John McCrab"

With Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, and Megan Ganz's The Always Sunny Podcast back again this week with a new episode ("The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby"), the podcast gang was kind enough to treat us to another clip. And this one hits upon one of the show's classics: S03E02 "The Gang Gets Invincible." In an episode filled with highlights, Geoffrey Owens's "Donovan McNabb" (and future "Tiger Woods") and Faizon Love's Coach were two of the biggest standouts. But in the following clip, we learn that the name "Donovan McNabb" was not an easy one for Love to say. "Donny John McCrab" or "Donaman Midmab"? No problem. In fact, Day gives an excellent reason why it was so much better that it worked out that way.
