On ESPN, Favre and Where Journalism Goes to Die

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

You know, I was really enjoying a pretty quiet beginning of August. Should've known Brett Favre was fixing to ruin that. You see, I'm a Packers fan. Always have been. As a result, I've morphed into something of the Brett Favre expert on this site. Truth be told, Favre was my ...

Favre’s Future Rests With Southern Miss Baseball

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Do you know whether Brett Favre is coming back to the Minnesota Vikings for one more year? Let me go ahead and answer. No, you don't. Nobody has any idea, probably not even Favre himself. Will he be able to put another season-ending interception (that a way Tracy Porter!) behind him? ...

How QBs Tell You To Go “F” Yourself

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

On Thursday night’s “SportsCenter” tease, I heard a sound byte from Brett Favre when he was asked what he thought about the reports there is a “schism” in the Vikings locker room. Favre’s response: “I don’t even know what that means.” In Folksy QB Talk that translates to “Fuck you.” Favre knew what ...

Brett Favre … Do I Really Need to Say Anything Else?

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

Let me be clear: Brett Favre is the single most important athlete of my childhood. Unlike everybody else on this blog -- including those poor, sad Bears fans -- I grew up a cheesehead-wearing, Favre-worshipping Packers fan. During my youth he won three MVP awards and went to two Super Bowls, ...

TheBaker’s Dozen: Favre, Swine Flu And Sonya Blade

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

1. I hate Brett Favre. I used to have an adversarial respect for him, being a Bears fan and all, but now this is just getting ridiculous. Talk about an attention whore. Oh, and Jay Glazer just bodyslammed the ESPN weasel trio of Schefter-Mortensen-Clayton at the same time, by not ...

Failure Is Not Only An Option, It’s Celebrated

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Bobby Kennedy once said, “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” There’s no doubting I’m a failure by society’s standards. I hold a college degree yet have no job. I have no girlfriend or wife. My bank account is subsidized by family. And every time I play ...

Kellen Clemens Is Delusional

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Less than a month after the New York Jets traded up to select Mark Sanchez with the No. 5 pick in the NFL Draft, it's safe to say Kellen Clemens is in denial. Clemens, a fourth-year player, claims he still expects to be the Jets' starter during the team's Week ...

Maybe This Time It’s Legit: Goodbye, Brett Favre

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

This time, there isn't much to say. If Brett Favre is indeed going to retire, I say only a solemn goodbye. He will one day go the the Hall of Fame as one of the best Green Bay Packers ever... And we Packers fans will remember him fondly, no matter how ...
