“Favre Faults”

Sadly this type of image of Brett Favre (pictured above) may become a common site for the American public as issues of a possible affair loom.

I hate to contribute to the ongoing 24/7 discussions of Brett Favre, but sometimes it is the best story out there.  And today quite frankly, I could not resist.

Favre is being investigated by the League for sending inappropriate text messages and pictures to a female employee of the Jets during the 2008 season.  For years now, when in heated discussions with others regarding Brett Favre, who I often refer to as “The Selfish One,” I have argued reasons why I feel he continues to return to the game for more brutal beatings.  Now I would never question this guy’s love for the game.  That goes without saying.  I also would never question his desire to win football games or his amazing toughness.  But why would a guy who holds all the records, has all the money in the world, continue to come back at the ripe age of 41… 

He loves the NFL lifestyle folks!

Something that comes with that NFL lifestyle is partying and women.  And what athlete does not like these things?  They are basically laid on a plate for them to enjoy throughout the courses of their careers.  Sadly for Brett, I do not think he can handle being at home all year around and acting as a typical family man.  He thirsts the NFL lifestyle.  He thirsts the ability to go out and do whatever he wants, whenever he wants.  Quite frankly, I cannot blame the guy.  He is living every 21 year old’s dream at the age of 41.  Really what could be better?

People seemed surprised by the whole Tiger Woods fiasco.  And I will admit, it caught me off guard.  But this scenario comes as no surprise to me.  Since Brett decided that he was bigger than the game around 3 or 4 years ago, I lost all respect for number 4.  Well now more people are going to lose respect for arguably the greatest statistical quarterback of all time as World War III in the Favre household begins.

People forget about other faults that Brett has demonstrated throughout his career.  He had a Vicodin problem.  He had a family issue of frankly not being there for his wife and daughter.  He even had a drinking problem.  Make no mistake, this issue with women though, will cause a huge public uproar.  There will be no hiding behind an offensive line on this one for #4.

Jenn Sterger, the woman making these accusations, has opened the floodgates folks.  Women will be lining up now to get in all this.  The days of Brett Favre being all over television commercials will be coming to a bitter end.  I am not saying that Brett is going to experience the earthquake that Tiger Woods did.  But the guy is already hurting with tendonitis and all sorts of injuries.  His team has underachieved.  And now he is about to deal with a plethora of family problems.

This year will be it for Brett Favre folks.  I guarantee it.

Favre’s faults are about to be exposed for all of America to see.  Not the best time for this to happen considering he heads to Lambeau on Sunday to take on the Packers.

Stay tuned for the next edition of TheSportsKraze.



“Weekly Nickel”

LSU Quarterback, Jordan Jefferson (pictured above), has played a major role in LSU's surprising 7 and 0 start. Can the Tigers keep rolling against fellow SEC undefeated foe Auburn next Saturday?

Most people love lists.  Our culture is one that thrives and tends to listen better to information that is put into lists.  It is just more visually appealing and easier to follow.  When people watch SportsCenter, the favorite part of the show tends to be the “Daily Top 10.”  Or sometimes, the “Not Top 10.”  So due to popular request and advice from our very own CV3,  I am going to try to post a Weekly Top 5 highlighting some events for the upcoming week every Monday.

So here is the first annual “TheSportsKraze” Weekly Nickel:

5.  NBA Preseason basketball continues.  The opener is drawing ever closer and set for Tuesday, October 26th.  Can the Lakers give Phil Jackson his 4th version of the mythical 3-peat (AKA the Phil Jackson Peat.)

4.  NCAA Basketball is nearing as most of the big schools have had some sort of version of their “Midnight Madness.”  Very sad story about Robbie Hummel going down with another ACL tear. Purdue will still be tought, but no longer is a National Title Contender. Steve Lavin continues to make big moves at St. Johns.  Can you say sleeper team?

3.  The NFL is entering Week 7.  Hard to believe, but who doesn’t love watching football on Sunday and Monday Night?  There are two marquee matchups.  First Brett Favre and the Vikings will head to Lambeau to take on a reeling Cheeseheads team.  Second, the Giants and Cowboys continue one of football’s best rivalries in front of the Monday Night Bright Lights.

2.  4 Major College Football Showdowns

Wisconsin vs Iowa, Nebraska vs Oklahoma State, Oklahoma vs Missouri, and LSU  vs Auburn.  Talk about games with National Championship implications.  The 2nd version of the BCS Rankings will come out Sunday.

1.  League Championship Series continue in the MLB.  As if there was any doubt on what the top event in town is.  Can the Yankees and Phillies make a rematch happen in the Fall Classic?  Seems to be the matchup that most of America would like to see.

So there you have the first edition of the “Weekly Nickel.”  Let me hear your thoughts.

Stay tuned for the next edition of TheSportsKraze.
