I thought the most-likely retirement and the $50,000 paid to Jenn Sterger was it. I thought Brett Favre was starting to slip out of our lives. Guess what? He’s back. Two former New York Jets massage therapists filed a lawsuit against Favre, the New York Jets, and Lisa Ripi (she hired the massage therapists for the Jets).
It’s blatantly obvious these two women, Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, are only thinking of themselves. How many people tonight and tomorrow are going to find out about these allegations and say, “What the f*#@, I thought we were done hearing about this guy.” Nope. It seems Favre has signed a one-year extension to our sports lives.
First, let me admit that I appreciated Jenn Sterger coming back into our lives. I loved her lead role as the Florida State cheerleader-in-the-stands. She was the pack leader of a fine group of ladies. Her school spirit and Playboy appearance swept through the college football country, intriguing other belly-shirted, short jean-cut-off wearing sorority girls to do the same. As a football fan, she touched my heart. And I thank Brett for that.
Do Scavo and O’Toole think they can come in and steal Jenn Sterger’s thunder? And at the same time keep Brett Favre on the front page when football fans across the country thought the end was near? There’s only one word for this. Selfish.
If you haven’t heard, the suit alleges that Favre sent text messages to Scavo, O’Toole and another unidentified massage therapist which were inappropriate. ABCnews.com is reporting these texts said the following:
“Brett here, you and Chrissy want to get together, I’m all alone.”
“Kinda lonely tonight, I guess I have bad intentions.”
“I can’t get my Wrangler jeans off. There too tight. But the zipper works.”
One of those I made up.
Furthermore, in late December or January with time running out in the game, one of Favre’s texts was intercepted by Scavo’s husband, Joseph Scavo. Joseph demanded an apology for the treatment towards his wife, but Favre declined politely. This paragraph was just a joke, just like these allegations.
The suit also alleges that the Jets locker room and training camp are “a hot bed of sexual harassment, sexism and inappropriate behavior.” This is absolutely shocking news. Who would think a locker room of football players would behave in such a way? I guess boys will be boys? Maybe someone should tell the women?
In conclusion, next time Favre is almost out of the picture ladies, keep your mouth shut. Find how to make money another way.
