Brett to Jet Set

August 7, 2008


I had this quirky lil’ blog post about Brett Favre set to publish tonight at midnight, and then he had to go and get traded. Ruin my whole post why don’t you B Fav? Now I gotta pretty much re-write the whole thing in the present tense so I don’t sound like an out of it sports guy. Oh well, at least I’m near a computer tonight where I can edit this buggah to da max.

What am I babbling about? After months of back and forth, the Green Bay Packers finally sent Brett Favre a packin’, in a trade to the New York Jets.


What does this mean exactly? Well, curtains for Chad Pennington and Kellen Clemens for one. For another, we’ll no longer associate B Fav (you heard that nickname here first… don’t touch! 😛 ) entirely with the Kaimuki High like, green and gold/yellow. He’ll still be donning green, but in a darker shade with white.

How did we get to this point?

…after B Fav all but retired after last season via a teary-eyed press conference? Well, he decided that retirement was not for him. I can kinda see/empathize with both sides:

* Green Bay: They’ve drafted and made roster moves, thinking Brett wasn’t going to be a part of their future. They’ve got a young stud Quarterback in Aaron Rodgers whom they’d like to get a good look at before deciding his contractual future. They’re just trying to move on.

* Brett Favre: He’s a competitor. He’s still got the itch. He knows he can still compete at this level.

Talk to me!

  • Who you siding wit’?
    • For me, I kinda side with the Packers on this one. I’m all about being a man of your word and doing what you say you’re going to do, so it’s hard for me to side with Brett.
  • Thoughts on seeing Favre in a Jets uni?
    • I’m neither a Packers or a Jets fans, so I look at it from a strictly Fantasy Football point of view. The idea of having Brett Favre on my fantasy roster instead of duds Chad Pennington and/or Kellen Clemens, is pretty scrumptious if you “axe” me. Wide Receivers Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery (and even TE Chris Baker and RB Thomas Jones for that matter) get a big boost as well. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. *rubs hands together*
  • For the ladies who read this blog… Is Brett Favre still a hottie to you?
    • Guys don’t look at other guys like that.

Hopefully, there are some sports/football nuts out thurr who will comment/discuss this below for poor, lonely me… Hollaatchoboy! *grin*
