Just a few months after the Eagles drafted Donovan McNabb, another thing happened to Angelo Cataldi that infuriated him for years.
McNabb is long gone, but bring up beach tags and the longtime 610-AM sports personality's bitterness over his 1999 beachfront brouhaha with Avalon comes surging back.
"I try to avoid Avalon whenever I can," Cataldi said yesterday. "I am one of the top enemies of Avalon, and I am proud of it."
Cataldi was renting a home in Avalon in August '99 that came with beach tags. The beach-tag patrol found Cataldi and his daughter Meredith on the beach one day without the tags, and he said that they wouldn't let him go get them. Instead, he was charged and fined.
