Brett Favre Mystery Solved

August 2, 2008

We can finally count on a bit more space in US newspapers to cover MLS and Olympic soccer now that the mystery of American football star Brett Favre’s future has been solved. Instead of playing for the Green Bay Packers (or some other team), it seems he has been disguised as Americana singer Shawn Mullins. He even seemed to pull of his new gig convincingly, showing up Thursday on the Bob and Tom Show.

Given Mullins’ full touring schedule this fall, its hard to see the three-time NFL MVP and two-time Super Bowl winner finding the time to play professional football.

At the same time, its a relief to be able to dispel this rumor since Favre’s playing style, with full respect for his athletic abilities, is probably not suited to Bolivian soccer. One thing though – he can definitely sing.
