Favre For Pope

Favre For Pope

Brett Favre is taping/has taped a message for the Pope to be played at the Thursday mass in Washington DC. He and his wife Deanna, along with Mike McCarthy, have been invited to the mass, but have not yet indicated whether they will attend.

Which is all well and good, if only because it serves as the perfect opportunity to bring up my favorite Favre joke ever:


God asks Eli Manning first: "What do you believe?"

Manning thinks long and hard, looks God in His awesome eye, and says, "I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my fans."

God can't help but see the essential goodness of Manning, and offers him a seat next to him.

God turns to Philip Rivers and says, "Philip, what do you believe?"

Rivers replies, "I believe there's no such thing as luck, that everything is guided by Your hand. I've been judged on the field, and what I've achieved is not good fortune but rather my guided path."

God is impressed with the depth of Rivers' response, and offers him a seat next to him.

Then God turns to Tom Brady and says, "What do you believe?"

Brady says, "I believe in passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. I, too have been lucky, but win or lose I've always tried  to be a true sportsman both on and off the playing fields."

God is greatly moved by Brady's sincere eloquence, and he offers him a seat next to him.

Finally, God turns to Brett Favre: "And you, Brett, what do you believe?"

Favre replies, "I believe you're in my seat."
