What's next for him? He'll probably buy another multi-million dollar compound tomorrow with hundred dollar bills collected from his couch cushions.

I would start drinking again, if I were him. :hmmm:

lol Phobia-it sounded like his mom was still in his boyhood home-she hid in the attic. I am just glad his family is okay. He has had some big losses in the last few years. I hope he has a big year on the field as well.

Wasn't it pills?:hmmm: Just to be safe maybe he should start up both?

You may be right about that. All I know is that he dried out here in Topeka once.

Yeah it was pain pills he was addicted to from several injuries. But he overcame it, won a Superbowl and mutiple MVPS. This guy is just amazing.

Didn't; he win the MVP's when he was an "active addict?"

I bet his family isn't looting. They probably had enough sense to actually get out of the way of the storm.

Or perhaps Brett sent down his jewel-encrusted private jet to pick them up.

Strange, that. I was watching one of the ESPN's (Classic?) the other day and saw something about a pitcher in the 70s pitched a no-hitter while tripping on acid. :eek: I'm still trying to comprehend that one. :shake:

I'm getting more than a little beyond sick of having to suffer through all of Brett Favre's personal tragedy's with him.

Thats mighty rough luck for Favre....but he's a gajillionaire, who will be able to take care of his family.

I'm going to keep the majority of my simpathies for those too poor to do anything about anything.

Yep really happened. Pticher for the pirates. Thought it was an off day and he was pitching the next day. Talks to kids about drugs now. Saw something on him on HBO

..and we're never allowed to forget it.


Give me a break. Plenty of people have things worse than Favre. Even other rich and famous people. I feel as bad for him as I do anyone going through anything. They can stop building the pedestal under him any day now though imo.

I know what you mean, "let's all feel sorry for the millionaire", and I agree.
To be fair: during his press conference yesterday Favre said something along the lines of 'hey, every time I get to asking why me I tell myself of all the things I have to be thankful for. I get to play in the NFL for the Packers, which is a tremendous privelege. I have a lifestyle that is beyond my wildest dreams. There are a lot of people hurting form this storm. I know I'm not the only one with problems, it's just that they put all of my problems on TV'.

Now there is a pretty level-headed mothaphucka. Can't hate on the guy for being rich but down to earth.

Yeah, don't be hating on the Favre. It's not his fault his wife has cancer or his boyhood home is destroyed or that he's from Missisppi. His only fault was getting himself hooked on the pills. Which he sucked up and kicked out of his life. An NFL QB admitting he's not stronger than a little pill. That took some guts in the mid 90's.

True dat. I don't mind a guy getting rich from his own skills, especially if he's nice about it.

Yeah, that was the one. I tried LSD a few times in my youth and I remember how it affected me. I'm just baffled by how he managed to do that while being under the influence of that stuff. :eek:

he's talking about his family being trapped .. 50 people in one house


and how he can't get to them


you think with all his money he could rent a big helicopter and pilot to go ferry his family out.


i wonder if they have grounded all air flight there too :hmmm:

He was in the "zone." Uh...except he burned out a giant section of his brain pan. Sizzle.......

This is your arm.

D Wilson (W, 11-4) 6.0 3 2 1 1 5 1 81-65 1.50



This is your arm on drugs.
