Two Idiots -- Rush Limbaugh & Brett Favre
Rush Limbaugh and Brett Favre are both idiots. But there are a lot of differences between the two of them.
Limbaugh is out of shape. And, has no talent.
I'm not saying that because I don't agree with his views on anything. Even if you're a Republican, you really have to admit, this guy is a windbag. And, his voice. Who can really listen to such an irritating voice? Why is it people have a hard time admitting someone is annoying, when they agree with them politically?
I'm a Democrat, and I have no problem saying Michael Moore is a lying idiot. I'm a Democrat, and I don't think Al Franken is funny. He was a good writer on Saturday Night Live (although his characters on that show were seldom funny). He's a good guest on talk shows. But, he was a horrible radio host.
Even though Dennis Miller is a Republican, and I agree with almost none of his views, he's a pretty good radio host. Same with Bill O'Reily. Now, Sean Hannity...this guy is one of the worst. Stacy Taylor...pretty good. Roger Hedgecock, absolutely horrible.
Republicans love listening to Limbaugh. Why? Just because he feels the same way they do? Who cares. That voice. That syntex. But...I guess he's doing something right. He just signed a $400 million dollar deal, that's paying him something like $38 million a year. Why Clear Channel agreed to pay him that is beyond me. They're going to lose their shirt on the deal. The same way Sirius Satellite did with the deal that brought Howard Stern over from the regular radio airwaves.
But the Stern deal made a little more sense. Satellite radio was a new thing and they wanted to show they could play ball with the big boys.
And, speaking of playing ball with big boys....
Favre has talent. He's one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. In my 20 years of playing fantasy football, there have been three or four different years, I've had him as my QB (although, a few of those years, I was hurt as a result of having him, I still recognized his greatness). This guy would lose an amazing receiver, like Sharpe, and make the next receiver a stud.
His father would pass away, and he'd go out the next day and throw for five touchdowns.
In the red zone, he got the ball in the end zone.
But for the last few years, he's played this game of saying he'll retire, only to come back and play. And it's gotten ridiculous.
Two years ago, he cried while talking to a female reporter after the last game of the season, hinting it was his final game. His teammates carried him off.
The following season, he was back playing.
If he comes back for another season, it really isn't fair to this QB that was named the starter (can't think of his name right now...maybe it's Aaron Rodgers or something like that). He was highly drafted, and the few times he's played, has done well.
But, the Packers will look like jerks if they say no to Favre. So here's what they should do. Tell him if he wants to play, he's second string. Aaron is their starter. I mean, he's been groomed for the role for three years now. And Favre is in his late 30s, and has had his share of concussions.
I saw on some sports show last night, a few Packers players talking. They kept saying over and over, that Favre told them, "I have the itch." The reporter asked, "So...does that mean he wants to come back for one more season?" The players would then respond, "Well...he just said he has the itch."
This line of questioning went on for about five minutes.
I wish the reporter would've said, "Maybe he got that itch from one of the cheerleaders. He can just go to a doctor and get rid of it."
