Slow News Day: Favre (Maybe) Coming To A TV Near You

Please no. Make the bad man stop.

In a move that surprises absolutely no person on the planet, Brett Favre hints that he might want to get into TV broadcasting. 

In other news, I would enjoy a quiet dinner with Natalie Portman or Mila Kunis.

Favre on TV? But what could ever have prompted that? Oh, right. An interview at a football camp:

The 41-year-old Favre ended a 20-year playing career after an injury-plagued 2010 season with the Minnesota Vikings. The former Southern Mississippi star has famously wavered on retirement over the last few offseasons. But the three-time NFL Most Valuable Player has told WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg on Thursday that he was "starting a new career.

Now, besides the fact that I would find it fundamentally impossible to watch whatever pre and post game show is on whatever network he lands on, what team would he fit on?

ESPN: Full of blowhards. Probably perfect. I could easily see him in the ESPN booth on Monday nights, incessantly talking about himself as players play actual games on the field below.

CBS: Not sure he'd be a great fit here. They already have an astonishingly good quarterback in their fold, and also Boomer Esiason. Down-home aw shucks attitude doesn't seem to gel with those personalities.

FOX: Brett Favre + Terry Bradshaw + Jimmy Johnson = Kev's head explodes into eleven pieces from the sheer inanity.

NBC: Here's an idea: forget studio analysis. Put him in the booth with Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth. Then play this new drinking game I invented.

Take one drink every time Collinsworth mentions how great Brett Favre is.
Take two drinks every time Brett Favre gives insightful analysis into a defensive play.
Finish your drink everytime Brett says what he would do, or talks about integrity, or or playing through injury like he did. (Note: You will be in the hospital sometime in the second quarter.)

All joking aside, should this horror story become reality, what team would you like to see him on?
