Not a Sports Blog
However, I just had to comment on the latest "scandal" that has come up (no pun intended) about Brett Favre. This guy is a grandfather, for heaven's sakes, the only one still playing in the NFL, and he gets himself embroiled in a scandal. He has been accused of sending lewd e-mails containing photos of his "Little Brett" to one Jenn Sterger. This supposedly happened in 2008 and is just now surfacing.
So, why is it such a big story now? I don't know. What did he hope to accomplish by sending the photo to Ms Sterger? Proof positive that he is not Jewish? Assurance that he doesn't have that little Clinton problem that some of Clinton's girl friends said he had? You know, the one that had Republicans in Congress insisting that the President "drop 'em" right there on the House floor, to prove the allegations were lies.
It's a mystery. One that I don't really want to pursue. No. The real question I have about Brett Favre is this:
Why is his name pronounced FARve, when it is obviously not spelled that way? Shouldn't it be pronounced FaVre (Favor) or Fahvreh? Well?
If anyone knows the answer to my question, I would like to hear from you. Thank you.
