There might be a war brewing between Mississippi and Louisiana. Because two of the two states’ favorite sons are at odds.
During FOX’s pregame show, Terry Bradshaw lambasted Brett Favre.
“I’m tired of it,” Bradshaw said at the top of the show. “I am. My family’s tired of it. . . . We’re all tired of it. I wish it would go away. I’ll be glad when it goes away. . . . I’ll be glad when he’s retired and moved on because I’m really fed up with him. . . . If I have to stand up there in Minnesota and hand him that [George Halas Trophy], I’ll be glad to do it. And if I’m wrong I’m wrong, but I’m tried of that whole scenario.”
The hell with the Hatfields and the McCoys; the Bradshaws and the Favres could be trading bullets in the near future. (We only hope Terry doesn’t die. Again.)
Meanwhile, Favre tells ESPN’s Ed Werder that the Hall of Famer has a “nervous stomach” as he prepares for the season opener.
Maybe it’s the swine flu.
Or the polio.
Or the lupus.
Though we’ll defer (eye roll) to the official injury report, chances are that any intestinal discomfort Favre experiences moving forward is a result of the second butthole that Bradshaw just tore for him.
