Brett Favre- Just Say No

Look I’m a Cleveland fan, and so as the saying goes, I don’t have a dog in this fight. (Oh, sorry Atlanta fans…) But this whole Brett Favre thing is just ridiculous. I’m watching Chris Carter make a fool out of himself on ESPN. I’m a Buckeye fan, so I have nothing but love for
