During his playing days, Vikings defensive tackle John Randle had a longstanding rivalry with Brett Favre. And for the last two years, Favre has been the quarterback of Randle’s former team. But if you think that makes Randle interested in what Favre has been up to, think again.
Randle, who sacked Favre 13.5 times, says he’s long since grown tired of following Favre’s career.
“I’m done following him,” Randle told the Huntsville Times. “That went on like a soap opera. It’s almost like another episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New York.’ There are too many other things in this world to be focused in on.”
In other words, Randle feels pretty much the same way as the typical football fan.
During his playing days, Randle made a commercial parodying his obsession with sacking Favre. Now Randle says he’s too busy being a dad to care much about football.
“I don’t want to just be a famous dad, I want to be a good dad,” Randle said. “I want to be sitting there watching SpongeBob and answering questions about Mr. Krabs. That’s what my focus in on.”
And Randle would rather watch SpongeBob than the Real Housewives of the NFC North.
