the pictures of your penis BLOW OFF

One of our loyal readers (AR) suggested we write about the recent Brett Favre scandal, so here goes. After everything that happened with Tiger Woods last year, it's not that surprising that yet another "wholesome" athlete is a probably a cheater. (Come on Tom Brady, what are you hiding?) BUT it kind of is surprising that Favre falls under the creepy stalker category. And sort of gratifying that not every guy can get any girl he wants.

In case you've been out of the loop, here's the rundown. Brett apparently took a liking to Jenn Sterger, a sideline reporter for the Jets and started messaging her on Myspace. Then, he starts leaving her voice mail messages asking her out. When she's still not responding to his advances, the voice mail messages get a little more desperate and that's when she starts getting sext messages with pictures of his penis. I mean, famous dudes--- stop being so dumb! Sterger's left her job at the Jets in May 2009.

She hasn't spoken up about the claims and it's unclear whether she leaked the info through a third party because she felt harassed and wanted to shed light on the issue-- or because she's a fame whore. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed it's the former.

The NFL claims to be investigating Favre for sexual harassment, but they pretty much want this to go away. Weirdly enough, this has not gotten nearly as much press attention as the Tiger Woods scandal--- maybe because there's only woman in this case instead of multiple women? Maybe because the media is biased? Who knows.

But I think at the end of the day, Bill Maher said it best:

"To me, this story isn't about sports or sex or how necessary caller ID is -- it's about how pathetic and clueless white American males have become. Because the kind of guy who thinks there are women out there who just, cold, want to see your cock, is the same kind of guy who thinks Sarah Palin is swell and tax cuts pay for themselves."

Seriously, guys! If we've been rejecting you, the last thing that's going to win us over is a picture of your penis. And Brett? Trust me, it wasn't anything to write home about.
