You’re About to Get Favred Right in the Favre!

And the choices for Brett in 2010...

And the choices for Brett in 2010...

It’s Week Four of the NFL season and one (bogus) storyline is dominating the headlines. Brett Favre faces the Packers for the first time. In fact, ESPN is pulling out all the stops on Monday afternoon by going for the Guinness World Record for most mentions of Favre in a single television show. That is officially the stupidest shit I have ever heard in my life, and I have heard some stupid shit before. I realize Brett is a legend in Wisconsin and we never thought we’d see him in a Vikings uniform. It’s damn near criminal. But he’s pulled so much crap over the last two years with his multiple retirements, his J-E-T-S-ing and whatnot, that it really doesn’t faze me too much anymore. I can’t say I speak for all Packer fans; there was an awful lot of booing at the Packer bar here in Chicago last weekend when they showed highlights of his first TD pass to Sidney Rice. But honestly, ESPN, fuck off. We don’t need this.

Movin’ on! Show me the games!

Detroit put the beatdown on the Redskins, 19-14, and turned Jim Zorn into this week’s winner of “Most Likely To Be Fired” where the contestants are every human being ever.

Reds. Brewers. Manny. Brett. What?

I don’t really understand these awkward little 2-game series (serieses? seriesi? We need copyeditors like Manny Ramirez needs to ovulate – more on that later) because in all likelihood, there will be a 4-game series later this year to make up for the awkward number of games in each city. There’s more travel, more jet lag, less off days – it’s just dumb. But for some odd and completely unknown reason, Bud Selig and his cronies do not care for my distaste of 2-game jaunts. And they played them anyway.

Now, for the quickest recap in history since I didn’t mention the Reds games from earlier this week in Miami: Monday, a 3-2 loss to the Marlins, and on Tuesday, a 7-0 win behind another ridiculously strong outing from Edinson Volquez. Road split against a first-place team = A+ work.
