Brett Favre -- "What Should I Do?" (Best Parody Video EVER)
Will no one leave Brett Favre alone?
"[Andy Pettitte is] opting not to play right now but that might change, it might not. I told him, 'Don't Brett Favre us. You got to be all in and fully dedicated to play.' Do I need him? I need him, but I don't want him to play if his heart's not in it." -- New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman
This post actually has nothing to do with Brian Cashman, Andy Pettitte or the New York Yankees. Frankly, I just found it funny that Brian Cashman -- a baseball general manager -- is using "Brett Favre" (future football Hall of Famer) as a verb.
And rest assured, if your name is being used as a verb, then it's probably not a positive reference. To wit, the following is Webster's unofficial definition of "Brett Favre":
Brett Favre -- v. BRET-farve 1. to take pictures of one's own genital anatomy and subsequently share those photos with unsuspecting members of the opposite gender; 2. to seek glory and adulation through the repetitive annual threat of retirement; 3. to willfully play pick-up football in jeans even though they are about 1/1000th the comfort level of sweats; 4. to throw soul-crushing interceptions at the least opportune moment in a football game; 5. to be a 40-year-old grandfather

(To be clear, I think Cashman was referring to "Brett Favre" under the second definition above, but who the hell knows what kind of freaky shit Pettitte is capable of.)
Today's post is a tribute to the various iterations of the verb "Brett Favre," all captured in this satire of LeBron James's "What Should I Do?" Nike commercial:
...which by the way, has surpassed this LeBron satire from South Park as the best LeBron spoof...
