Taking a look at the biggest sports punchlines of 2010
You unretired. Again. Got busted for trying to cheat on your wife. Played truly awful football. Saw your consecutive games streak end. And got fined by the NFL.
That was all just this NFL season. You, of course, kicked off 2010 by throwing one of the worst interceptions in playoff history to keep the Vikings out of the Super Bowl. There really wasn't a news cycle that went by this year that didn't include some sort of new and humiliating story about you. Normally it would be mean-spirited to laugh at so much misfortune heaped upon one person. But here's the thing: everyone hates you. That's the one thing you achieved in your final return to the NFL: you managed to become despised by 100-percent of the U.S. population.
For 20 years we heard constantly how you played "like a kid out there." This year you gave us the gift of childlike laughter full of purity and joy as we laughed at you. Thanks, Brett. Maybe you're not all bad after all.
Picture Is This the End of Brett Favre?
No. He will never go away. It's a trick! (via mocksession)
We'd link to where you can buy it, but no one wants to buy this.
It was hoped Favre could pull through as late as Sunday when a snowstorm wrecked the Metrodome and pushed his team's scheduled game back a day. But during pregame warm-ups on the field in Detroit, the hand numbness was discovered and the decision was made to pull the plug.
"I didn't think I could function good enough to help us win," said Favre, in what were his final words.
Mustafa Abu Yazid, a leader of the terrorist organization, said in a 40-second video that the attack was in response to the "legacy of debauchery left behind by the Zionist Favre."
The stadium's roof was originally reported to have collapsed under the weight of heavy snowfall, but Yazid's claims dispute this, arguing that it was actually sunny and warm in Minneapolis and that a remote explosive device caused the damage.
"The transgressions of Favre, the Vikings organization, the NFC, and their many Jewish allies have too long gone unpunished. Before sunrise we struck mercilessly, giving fat, slovenly Americans one fewer venue for indulging in their barbarian sport," said Yazid, while affixing a bomb to an adorable lamb.
So fabric roofs aren't a good idea? Huh.
Tarvaris Jackson should run for president.
Leslie Frazier is already the greatest coach in football history.

Here's someone who would be happy to have a pictured texted to him of Brett Favre's dong.
