Look, you love Brett Favre. It's okay; it's a natural part of being alive. You're still mourning his for-realsies-this-time retirement. You're still wearing his jersey. You're probably a Jacksonville Jaguars fan, but you still had a jersey made that says "FAVRE 4" on the back, because you love him so dang much. (And I mean, what else do you have to feel good about?) But what if I told you there was a way that you -- yes, you -- could interact with the great Brett Favre himself? No, I'm not pulling your chain.
No Guts, No Glory happened to notice that Charity Buzz is auctioning off a chance for your child to play catch with the ol' Gunslinger. The value of this item is valued at $10,000 and bidding is currently all the way up to $4,250.
"But there must be a catch!" I'm sure you're saying. "Certainly my son or daughter can't huck around the pigskin with God's Own Brother-In-Law Brett Favre for the paltry sum of just-under-five-grand!" Indeed there is a catch, dear reader. If you want the chance to have your kid embarrass himself or herself with crummy, weak arms ("Must get it from their mom's side," you'll mutter), you will have to either live in, or be able to travel to, the Sumrall, Miss., area.
But wouldn't that be worth the money and the trip to Mississippi? To be able to watch your kid play catch with Favre for a few seconds before you drift off staring at the QB and start imagining yourself in those Lee commercials with him? Slapping fives, sharing toothy grins, getting down and dirty? Of course it is. So pony up, you jerks. Give your dumb kids something to feel good about and/or hate you for later in life, when you have to go into foreclosure because you burned six large or so on a Favre-related excursion. Totally worth it.
And in case you're wondering, Burnsy at With Leather already took care of the requisite "Favre gets hit in the dong" joke, so head over there for that.
