THIS WEEK- MICHAEL VICK VS. BRETT FAVRE
With the start of the football season just around the corner I had to choose my first official Hottie and Nottie from the manly, sweaty, chiseled realm of the football gods. So who better than notorious dog killer Michael Vick and Wrangler wearing quarterback Brett Favre? So lets start with Mr. Vick.
Yes, he did engage in dog fighting and yes it was terrible and inhumane. But Michael Vick has paid his debt to society and has since returned a much more humble and I believe introspective man. It was this press conference that changed my mind about Vick:
After watching it, I did forgive him, and I do welcome him back. Hell, I even want him to do well. I am a person that believes in second chances. And besides, it’s not like he murdered anyone (ahem, Donte Stallworth). So for those reasons Michael Vick, you are Hanna’s Hottie of the week.
On the Not-so-hottie or Nottie side, there’s Brett Favre, who by any physical means is clearly a “hottie” and would have remained a “hottie” in my book forever… had he not decided to come back from retirement, again. And not only did he re-unretire himself, again, he came back to play for the Packers most dreaded nemesis – The Minnesota Vikings! Brett, how could you? Why couldn’t you have just retired a hero? I know you may not want to hear it, but you’re old in football years. Just think, you could be sitting on your porch in Mississippi with your sweet gals by your side, or playing football in the mud, or drinking a Bud Light with the guys. But nooooo, you just couldn’t stay away and for that reason, you, Brett Favre are my Nottie.
Until next time…
