If Brett Favre could transport himself back to 2008, it’s hard to imagine he wouldn’t change literally everything about his approach to the Jenn Sterger scandal.
Maybe he wouldn’t be married. Maybe he wouldn’t have a Jets personnel approach the former Maxim model for her number on his behalf. Maybe he would have tried another avenue once she did not give him the digits. Maybe he would have popped an Extenze before blasting off unsolicited pics of his baby carrot. Maybe he would’ve changed out of Crocs. Maybe.
Luckily for the gunslinger, Favre’s wife of 25 years, Deanna, has stuck by his side a full decade after the debacle monopolized the media and Jenn has been married to former minor league baseball player Cody Decker since 2018.
Favre has allotted significant time in retirement to spotlighting the dangers of football-induced CTE, just this week claiming kids under 14 years old shouldn’t play tackle football. CNN subsequently invited Favre on to discuss his stance on concussions before shifting to the topic of vaccines, of which the Hall of Famer voiced skepticism and opted not to reveal whether or not he’s been vaccinated.

Sterger (now Decker by marriage), who claimed to be “humiliated” by the scandal when it broke and said her life was “turned upside down,” refused to pass up an opportunity to joke about it 10 years later.
In her defense, funny is funny.

What do you think will be the last bastion of shaming society will accept? It’s a toss up between redheads and micropenises.
P.S. The story of how the whole thing blew open in August of 2010 is astounding. Deadspin’s A.J. Daulerio (think Hulk Hogan sex tape) dirtbagged his way into outing private conversations he had with Sterger after she sent an email to him in February 2010 with the subject line: NOT A WORD OF THAT SHIT TO ANYONE. Read it here.
Now Deadspin is claiming the real crime in sports is Tom Brady’s son becoming a ball boy. People don’t forget. –Seth, Superbad.
