Oh man. Oh man. Oh man.
It's about to get dirty.
What's it going to be? Well, some sort of sex scandal, with cell phones involved, by the looks of it. This is good on so many levels.
First of all, Brett Favre has become one of the more hated personalities in sports, purely due to his behavior over the past two offseasons. Unfortunately, only the football-inclined Americans cared. Other folks, like Peter King readers and the women of Oprah nation, for instance, still see him as a clean-cut loving husband who plays football with his buddies in rural America.
Whatever this is, no matter how outlandish, will sully at least that. I'm not saying this will be something on par with Tiger Woods (get it), but it'll at least be worth it seeing the looks on peoples faces when they ask me what I think about the whole ordeal.
But in reality, I see two positives coming out of this awful, hopefully stomach-wrenching situation.
FIRST AND FOREMOST! Forget about the Favrellatio that happened the last two years. Favre isn't going to be having people over to his house to kiss his ass. Fewer teams already are sick of his will he/won't he bullshit. This is going to take many of his bargaining chips off the table.
SECONDLY! Way to actually show some gumption, tricks. That's right, I'm talking to the hos, the skanks, the tricks, the scallawags, the sluts, the gold-diggers, and the rest of them. I'm sick of how you've been going after athletes. So far, it's been one of two paths: Either the richest black guy with the most sponsorship coin (Jordan, Kobe, Tiger); or the grossest or sleaziest dude you can throw yourselves at.
Nobody had any illusion that Rick Pitino's greasy ass will fuck around. Big Ben is ugly enough to where he probably had to take it by force when he wasn't rich and famous.
But Brett Favre? I salute you, mystery accuser. You're probably lying and just a tramp that wants money and fame, but I'm glad that you at least bucked the trend and are going after the top dog.
UPDATE! Her name is Jenn Sterger, and Brett Favre sent her pictures of his penis as a member of the Jets. In 2008. Not QUITE as awful and demeaning, but. You know how these things go. The first allegation is just the smallest one. Just a foot in the door, opening up the man's image for all the crazies to come out of the woodwork. Chop chop, bitches!
