So much to say about Brett Favre's latest drama, so little time. I have much to say about Brett and the alleged sexting scandal, which I call Junkgate. Sadly, no one thought to coordinate the breaking of this drama with my schedule. A blog post on this topic is forthcoming.
The second week of the 2010 football season is ending. In my eyes, it's going to be hard to top it. After last week's failings, both of my teams pulled through this week for wins. Though it wasn't pretty, the Eagles won with Michael Vick as quarterback. Even though "only" over Detroit, it is still a win. Big bro showed little bro who was boss in the Manning Bowl, and in so doing made me forget the pain that was the Colts season opener/slaughter by the Texans.
No, this post isn't about this fall's mid-term elections. It's about the subject of my previous blog topic, Mr. Brett Favre. The hot mess-ness continued yesterday, after he decided he had enough of being a lazy oaf in Mississippi and showed up at training camp for the Minnesota Vikings. Just in time for it to be over. He also chose to finally address his intentions for the season. The ridiculously indecisive quarterback said that he will return to the Minnesota Vikings for his 20th, and so he says, final, NFL season.
Why is Brett Favre such a hot mess? Perhaps the better question is, why does his hot mess-ness fascinate me so much? I suppose it's all human nature. It's hard to turn away from a train wreck. I love football but admittedly don't know a lot about contracts and such--but I simply don't get it. How come the man is allowed to keep his team hostage? Why can he just hang out and miss training came and come back IF he is healthy? Shouldn't he have determined that prior to the start of training camp?!
