Favre to Jets to Oblivion

It looks like Brett Favre is going to sink into oblivion while playing for the New York Jets. The Jets just don't have the (cue deep voice) Lambeau Field cache of the Green Bay Packers.

They don't have the cache of the Tennessee Titans either.

The Jets are a perennial so-so team. True, the addition of Favre will make them a little less so-so the same way Joe Montana made the Chiefs less mediocre way back in the day.

But Favre won't make the Jets good enough to be interesting.

So what's Favre going to do if he wants to keep up the media attention. And, as his "retirement" shows, Favre really wants to keep up the media attention.

Here's where I can help.

If Favre wants to stay in the limelight, Favre should leave his wife for a famous actress, singer, or model.

Let's see. Madonna's taken by Alex Rodriguez. Mariah Carey's about Brett Favre's age, but she'd have to dump her rapper husband.

What about Christiane Amanpour. She's famous, good looking and kind of exotic in an unkempt way.


Yeah, Brett Favre could divorce his wife and take up with Christiane Amanpour. That's the only way he could stay vital and interesting even though he's playing for the Jets.

Maybe Brett should call Lance Armstrong for tips.

Aye, Brett and Christiane! Two of my favorite people. Been a Packer Fan for years and news junky, too... with a photo of Christiane and others on my wall. Not sure if they would make a couple but the soap opera about Favre is almost too much for a Packer fan. Lucky that I also like the Jets. It was a nice break from the Obama vs McCain soap opera. Such fun.
