We can’t quit Brett Favre, and in his playing days he couldn’t quit texting the women who massage his body over and over again, until the night closes in.
Favre has become a prime example of why old people shouldn’t text, or have any connection with technology whatsoever. Our blessed elderly population may understand how to use the Internet that we know and love, and the cell phones that connect us to said Internet from anywhere. But often they don’t understand its reach, and the fact that once something is written either on the Internet or in a text message, it never, ever goes away.
This is one of those times.
In the latest twist to Favre’s alleged dabbles in horndoggery when he was briefly the Jets’ quarterback, a Manhattan judge who’s hilariously and appropriately named Milton Tingling refused to dismiss a lawsuit from two Jets masseuses who claim that the 42-year-old sent them lewd text messages.
So bring on the sleaze, Brett. What did you do this time?
Here’s the smoking gun from the New York Daily News:
“Brett here. You and Crissy want to get together? I’m all alone,” Favre wrote in one message, according to their lawsuit filed last year. “Kinda lonely tonight. I guess I have bad intentions.”
Surely by bad intentions he only means that he wants them to come over and bake some warm apple pie, and he was on a diet so he should be forbidden from eating such treats. Seems innocent enough.
Tingling’s refusal to dismiss the charge means that Favre will now have to testify and answer to his messages under oath. The lawyer for the two masseuses said Favre is in a bad spot, and he probably won’t want to raise his right hand to do anything but “throw a football.”
Yep, that’s all he’s ever done with that hand.
And now you want to know the rest of the story…
- The practice of mock drafting is quite literally a business, and for some comedy at some point this week (possibly today) we’ll take a quick glide around the Interwebs to see who’s ranked highest in the early 2013 mocks (yes, those exist). But if you’re a draftnik glancing through the most wayward speculation, remember that Mel Kiper Jr.–one of the most respect draft gurus–had five players in his initial 2012 mock last spring who went undrafted.
