I keep thinking I should have a little jingle for this feature. I've never had a jingle.
Anyway, Brett Favre hasn't yet signed with Miami (or, hopefully, the Toronto Bills) but he is still out there getting publicity, via his drink-cadging Doppleganger:
A man who resembles Brett Favre has been impersonating the former Packers quarterback around Green Bay. He's even been spotted wearing a No. 4 jersey. ...the man impersonating Favre reportedly attended the Packers practice Thursday and posed for pictures with several fans. He also showed up at two local sports bars.
(Source.) Despite previously hating Favre so much that they burned him in effigy, short-memoried, easily-duped, not-yet-sold-on-The-Anointed-One-Even-With-The-Super-Bowl-Ring Packer fans asked Not-Favre to sign autographs, which he apparently did still posing as Brett. Some fans weren't fooled:
"The guy is a phony...But he keeps his head down so you can't get that good of a look at him,"
Said the owner of a sports bar where Bizarro Favre held court for fifteen minutes or so. (Same source.).
Judge for yourself: Here's Fake Favre sitting in the stands watching a Packers practice:
Just to make sure they weren't (or were?) being Punk'd, the Green Bay Press Gazette tracked down Favre's travel coordinator, who confirmed that Favre hasn't been in the Green Bay area since the last time the Vikings played the Packers, which raised the obvious question:
Why does Brett Favre need a travel coordinator?
The only possible answer, to those in the know (guilty!) is that Favre needs a travel coordinator because he is clearly planning on signing with the Toronto Bills, and travel between Mississippi and Canada is tricky. probably as soon as tomorrow. Don't hesitate to draft him in your Fantasy Football league.
