• Here’s a video showing the real victims of the final-until-two-weeks-from-now Brett Favre retirement: media whores. When you think about it, in any tragedy, it’s always the whores who suffer the most.
  • LenWhale’s key to shedding unwanted pounds: quit pounding tequila. And if you can’t, at least quit chasing it with bacon paste.
  • Someone’s stirring up the rubes by wearing a Vikings Favre jersey to Packers camp. That’s the worst thing you can do in Green Bay save maybe saving there’s only low fat creamer left.
  • DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, now apparently rebranded as “Double Trouble” (clever!) have started a web site where they offer to let you become a “troublemaker” for the low, low price of $34.28. Good luck with that. Though you know if two benchwarmers from the Tar Heels did the same thing, North Carolina would be all over like grits on everything.

  • Vehicular wackiness has been all the rage at training camps this year, be it Reggie Wayne showing up in a dump truck (somehow Najeh Davenport never thought of this), James Harrison in a Smart Car (BECAUSE THEY SMART ENOUGH TO BE LOYAL TO JAMES HARRISON!) and the Buzzsaw on Segways, not to mention the usually forced folksiness of athletes tooling around on bikes. Update: they got scooters too! However, unless Al Davis arrives via autogyro, I’m not really getting into this campmeme.
  • Finally, a sign the tip contest for your book turned out to be an abortion: the person who won (and not with even a particularly strong entry) replied by e-mail claiming they didn’t actually submit the entry.

    The fair thing to do would be the give the choice to the second place entrant, but they don’t really deserve the choice either (they’re still getting the books). So, I tell you what I’m going to do: we’re gonna put it to a vote.

    SAVE ME, YINZER HORDE!

    Poll will be open until the end of Tuesday.
