A Favre winds up in West Virginia

122329086 Getty Images

Here’s one that interests me for a couple of reasons.  First, it kind of relates to Brett Favre.  Second, it entails a member of the Favre family relocating to West Virginia, where I live and work (in large part because I live and work in the same building).

Brett’s brother, Jeff Favre, has been hired to serve as the Director of Gaming at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort in Chester, West Virginia, according to Jeff Jenkins of WVMetroNews.com.

It’s located in the northern tip of the state, close to Pennsylvania and Ohio.  And so look for periodic Favre sightings at nearby Pittsburgh International Airport as he comes to town to support his brother, and also to gamble with something other than his cell phone.

So, Brett, any time you wanna hang out when you’re in West Virginia, just send me a text.

Wait, don’t send me a text.

    Since we are now reporting on nfl family members that never actually played in the NFL, any word on where Peyton and Eli’s older brother goes grocery shopping?

    Does Brett Favre gamble in casinos? He seems way too cheap to be high rolling it with a posse at the Mirage. Jordan? yes LaBron? yes Woods? yes Favre? I just don’t see it…..

    Who cares if its not a football story! It’s a story for all of you nut-loving Favre fans. At this time of the year, there isn’t much football going on.

    Don’t you have some Saints bashing to do?

    The entire point of that article was to use the texting bit at the end.

    IMO it was totally worth it.

    You guys need to lighten up. It’s the off season. I thought that story was funny. lol @ “gamble with something other than his cell phone.”

    I had no clue you were in WV. I just moved back. How about a job?

  17. chocopoppy says: Mar 27, 2012 2:44 PM

    Funny he ends up in West VA — I hear Brett is looking for more pain meds again. Coincidence?

    Favre at the casino?

    “I’m going to put it all on black. That’s it. I’ve made my decision. My body’s just telling me to put it all on black, and it’s time. I promised myself I wouldn’t drag it out, and so now I put it all on black.”

    *bets everything on red*

    If you two fey Pats fans don’t like it, then leave. Get a sense of humor, New England lemonsuckers. Better yet, get a room and entertain each other instead.

    Payback for all the interceptions Favre threw to fix games for the mob? (And the sack he took to rig Strahan’s sack record, of course.)

    The Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort operates out of your mom’s basement?
