What do Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and Brett Favre Have in Common?

posted by on August 7 at 13:36 PM

Sports fans, in case you spent your morning under a rock: Brett Favre is now a New York Jet.

Favre’s also the Madden ‘09 cover boy, so a career-ending injury shouldn’t be too far off. Perhaps at the hands of a Jersey crime family.

Hopefully Ol’ Man Favre will play long enough to rack up a few more highlights. I’m so fucking tired of seeing this clip every time ESPN talks about his “legacy.”

Brett Favre makes me swoon.

I'm excited that this gives him a chance to hit 300 career interceptions.

This just in: Brett Favre is old.

I'd like to see Farve have an impact there. It's gonna be a way bigger challenge than pulling levers on the old machine.

That Packers / Hawks game, though pissapointing, was a great football game.

Thankfully he isn't much of a fantasy option

farve will retire again in late october after he tires of studying film and practicing (booooring! i'm bret fuckin' farve!), though he'll say it's an injury.

miraculously, the jets will make the playoffs, dictating that farve will again un-retire (mah leg's feelin' better! i'm brett fuckin' farve--gimme the ball!)

Watching that clip, I now realize the only reason Favre got away is because of a non-call...just as the defender is about to take down Favre, a lineman comes back and tackles him. That's holding, isn't it?

We got hosed (as usual).

The Brett Favre saga has me baffled. I wish he'd just retire. Seems he wants to go out a la Joe Montana who retired after playing two insignificant seasons with the KC Chiefs. Brett rest on your laurels already.

I'm 100% with you, Lark.

I excluded Favre (and Shaun Alexander) from my fantasy team.
