Donovan McNabb's parents, Sam and Wilma, have decided not to attend Sunday's game at the Linc, according to the

Washington Post


The McNabbs have been at virtually every game their son has played since grammar school.

People familiar with the McNabbs' decision said they think the day will be filled with distractions because they have so many friends in Philly that they would rather follow the game on television. McNabb is expected to have many friends and family at the game.

Donovan told the Post earlier this year that he could not remember them missing one.

"He probably can't remember us missing because we were there for 99.9 percent of them," Sam McNabb told the Post before the season.
