So I turned on ESPN last night to get more coverage about how Brett Favre ISN'T starting a game (did you know that he started 297 straight games? Isn't that awesome?) and the coverage kept getting interrupted by a football game. I came here to find out what you guys were saying, and while you were indulging in all of the Brett Favre banter (like someone WOULDN'T be intersted!), you seemed to be more interested in a football game! That's bananas! I think it was the same game that was cutting in on all the Brett Favre coverage.
So, back to the point, Brett Favre started 297 games in a row. Not only is that the longest streak of all time, it makes him invincible. His coach would get fired before he sits him. The commissioner who runs the league with a iron fist apparently has no power over this streak. He was even able to rise to movie stardom in "There's something about Mary", which is obviously the greatest movie ever simply because it is starring (and rumor has it directed by as well) none other than Brett Favre, during the Greatest Streak of All Humans Ever in the History of Forever. He's just awesome. When he wasn't starting in the game last night, which by the way he did the last 297 games in a row before then, he was doing things like sitting on the bench, wearing t-shirts, sending text messages and talking to teammates who were starting. If he was one of the teammates that was starting, he would have started 298 games. Did you know that?
