Ask any red-blooded American man who Brett Favre is and the answer will likely be: "One of the best National Football League quarterbacks. Ever." True enough, but he's tugged at fans' heartstrings enough the past few years—retiring, unretiring, et cetera—that there's little public sympathy when embarrassing things happen to him. Like alleged pictures of his penis
on Gawker Media's Deadspin, which the company obtained for a mere
and which Favre (allegedly) sent to a female sideline reporter along with sexy voicemails. To be fair, Favre does a lot of good in the communities he works in.
He and his wife donated
$600,000 to four Minnesota charities in October. Still, making it rain on a penis picture snafu, even one on which the jury is still out, doesn't make it any less of a penis picture snafu. And on the football front it's been a far from stellar season for the future Hall of Famer. He's
to break his career single-season turnover mark.
