Two days before Jimmie Johnson won his sixth Sprint Cup championship, Donovan McNabb went where many have gone before:

"He sits in a car and he drives, that doesn't take being athletic,'' the former quarterback said on Fox Sports One. "What athletically is he doing?"

Wednesday, Kevin Harvick, who finished third in this year's Sprint Cup standings, responded on Twitter this way:

Oh, snap! In case you need a refresher course, McNabb allegedly lost his lunch in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XXXIX, something Harvick clearly hasn't forgotten.

Guarantee you Eagles fans don't find it funny. Still.

As for McNabb's (tired) argument that drivers aren't athletes, didn't Ernest Hemingway settle this years ago when he said, "There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games"?

That would make Johnson the athlete and McNabb a gamer, putting him in the ranks of the pimple-faced 14-year-old playing World of Warcraft in his parent's basement, right?
