Brian Urlacher Dragged For Using Brett Favre’s Dad Death To Own Boycotting NBA Players

When “Brett Favre” began trending on Twitter Thursday afternoon, I suspected something frivolous, like Brett’s hot take on the upcoming NFL season or Brett sending another unsolicited photo of his johnson to an unsuspecting cheerleader.

I’d soon learn that Brett wasn’t trending for any reason of his own, but because fellow ex-NFLer Brian Urlacher used him as a prop in a buffoonish conflation of Favre admirably playing in the wake of his father’s death to NBA players refusing to play in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting.

Kenosha police officer Rusten Sheskey shot the 29-year-old Blake seven times in the back after police were called to the scene for a domestic dispute. Blake reportedly admitted to having a knife in his possession and was shot shortly after he “opened the driver’s side door, and leaned forward,” the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation said.

Facts of the incident aside, one has to do some serious mental gymnastics or hallucinatory drugs to get on board with this Urlacher nonsense.

Urlacher reportedly went on to ‘like’ a post calling to free Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old suspect in an on-going investigation for shooting two protesters and seriously injuring another during a Kenosha protest.

Urlacher, who met with President Trump back in March presumably to ask his brother be pardoned for his illegal participation in a gambling ring, made very few new friends on the internet today.

You can’t spell Urlacher without an L.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
