This post was supposed to be a furious Brett Favre rant I was ready to unleash upon the readers (if you're not easily offended, read this instead). However, that anger will have to wait for another day. Despite battling what I believe is a mutated form of swine/avian flu for the past four days, I am in a great mood. Why you ask? Well, just look at today's glorious sports news:
First, I find out that legendary douche-bag Manny Ramirez (or Man-Ram, as other douche-bags call him) has been suspended for 50 games by testing positive for a banned substance. Excuse me a moment...
Wait? What's that you say? The substance in question was a women's fertility drug that is used to jump start the body's natural use of testosterone after finishing a steroid cycle? Excuse me again for a moment...
Next? PLEASE just watch this post-game interview with Ron Artest courtesy of Deadspin. If there is any way to scare Kobe Bryant, mentioning a pick-up game in which a friend of yours gets stabbed through the heart with a broken table leg maaaaaaaay be the way to do it.
I wonder if Ron-Ron can ice-skate? I can believe in an enforcer like that.
I then get home from work, and see the blessed news that Yahoo sports has reported that Brett Favre will stay retired.
THANK YOU, GOD!!!!!! We can all breathe a sigh of relief that we don't have to hear about this arrogant, media-whore for every second of our lives leading up to the season.
Oh yeah I almost forgot.... fuck you, Peter King.
