I hope this report is not true. In Bob Wolfley’s column in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning he flags a story that tells us that Brett Favre had his first facial and pedicure. Brett Favre, metrosexual.
According to an Associated Press report, when Favre and his wife Deanna were in New York last week they saw a Broadway play, “Jersey Boys,” and, according to Matt Hasselbeck, Favre had his first facial and a pedicure.
Hasselbeck also was in New York and spent time with his former teammate.
“He’ll probably kill me for this,” said the Seattle quarterback, referring to sharing that information with the press. “It was something he and his wife Deanna did together,” Hasselbeck said. “I feel sorry for the woman who did the pedicure.”
That is just so wrong. Favre is the personification of modern manhood, the avatar of guyness. And now he’s getting a pedicure? And a facial?
Full disclosure: I had a pedicure once. I’m scarred by it to this day. (My wife gave it to me as a present.) I will never have another one. And I have never had a facial.
I thought Laura Ingraham was wrong to criticize Favre for his tears during his farewell press conference. But if she wants to go after him for this, I’ll be standing right behind her.
