YardBarker- Favre, in case you haven’t heard, is a well-documented prankster who often terrorized the Packers’ locker room with practical jokes and gags. And if you don’t believe us, the 46-year-old ex-quarterback recently provided evidence by regaling reporters with one of his cruelest pranks.
“When it got extremely cold and guys had to park outside in the outside parking lot … we would go unlock their cars because it was gated,” Favre said in a conference call Tuesday, via ESPN.com. “We’d go out and get into someone’s car and we would move it to the far end of the parking lot and leave it running with the air conditioning on.
“So when we got out, we would take like a cup of water and we’d throw it on the door and it couldn’t open. When they finally were able to get in, it would be — as you could imagine it’s 30 degrees, 0 degrees, whatever outside — it was even cooler inside. That was a cruel prank, though, in Green Bay.”
I gotta tell ya, I'm pretty stunned. Sure, Brett Favre being a dickhead that took inter-team shenanigans just a little too far was rather predictable, but the fact that Geno Smith was the first starting quarterback to get his jaw broken by a teammate undoubtedly wasn't. Not if this story is true anyway. Never mind repeatedly being blown off by someone that owes me money, I would be much more inclined to knock out the leader of my locker room if he locked me out of my running, freezing car in the middle of a Wisconsin winter. I am going to go out on a limb and say that Brett wasn't there to see these pranks through to fruition, because if he was that consecutive games streak would have came to an end long before he finally hung up the cleats.
Hell, even if he did stay to see the results of his handiwork he's still an entitled asshole. Pretty easy to pull a fast one on somebody when you know that they are the only person that will get in trouble if they retaliate. Brett Favre was like the little brother that kept poking and prodding the older brother knowing he could just cry to mom if he laid a hand on him. That's the only explanation as to why no one put him on the IR after he moved their car and forced them to deal with that feeling of getting into a vehicle that has the same shitty climate conditions as the weather outside. I am liable to commit vehicular homicide when my AC takes too long to get cool during the dog days of summer so this practical joke is as impractical as it gets, and a non-violent reaction is undoubtedly an under reaction. Hope every person that ever had to trudge through snow just to break into their own car found his current address so they could Wrangle his neck in retirement.
