Brett Favre.....not the sharpest tool in the shed?
MJD, via Yahoo!:

Brett Favre might want to invest in his own cell phone

It's not as poetically idiotic as Chris Henry getting arrested while wearing his own jersey, but this one's in the same neighborhood.

Remember those tampering charges that the Packers filed against the Vikings? And remember how I thought it would be difficult for the Packers to prove that Favre had made inappropriate contact with the Vikings?

Well, that assumed that Brett Favre wasn't using a Packers-issued cell phone to make those calls to the Vikings. As it turns out, Favre may have done exactly that.

From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

...Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had an interesting bit of information in a piece he wrote about the quarterback today.

McGinn writes that a source said Favre had continued to use a Packers-issued cell phone and that when the team checked the phone records it found repeated calls to coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

The possibility of Favre having used a phone issued by the Packers had been speculated on last week after the Associated Press reported that Green Bay informed the NFL it felt an investigation of the phone records would show more than normal contact between the Vikings and Favre, even before he formally asked for his release to play for another team.

In fairness to Favre, it should be mentioned that any phone calls he made to the Vikings were made in a gunslinging fashion, and through the entire conversation, he looked like a kid out there, just having fun. ......(more)

1. Being a Patriots fan, having all this offseason controversy being
directed elsewhere is kinda nice.

Good luck with that whole Favre thing, Packers fans--I'm sure it'll, uh, work itself out.
