Tuesday’s Top 10 F-Related Blog Headlines

The Universal Symbol of Media Whoredom, Deception and Overall Full of Sh&*ness

I promised last go-around it would be the last of it. I do not lie to my people. Instead, I share the words of others across this great and vast nation of bloggers. Somewhere in grade school an English teacher of mine praised the power of the headline. She was a wise old sage. A catchy and relevant title, in this case of a post, can tell so much in so few words. Like Twitter, before Twitter. Here are my 10 personal favorites from a day in which he intruded on all of our lives again without an invitation. In no particular order…

10. “Out of the Spotlight for Two Minutes, Favre (un)Retires
From: i94sports.com
The Goods: Dead-on headline that captures what this whole summer-long…year-long…decade-long…retirement waffling crap is all about – Favre and his unquenchable desire to be the absolute center of attention.

9. “Who Had August 18 in the Brett Favre Un-Retirement Pool?”
Source: NYMag.com’s Daily Intel
Analysis: As someone who actually laughed out loud at the percentage of people voting on the ESPN.com poll that Favre would “stay retired” several weeks ago, I also chuckled at this. I actually had a slightly later date in pool, but you’d have to be a gambling neophyte to have chosen a day before training camp concluded.

8. “It’s Official, Favre Signs, Packergeek Pukes
From: Packergeeks.wordpress.com
Why It Works: I just relate to nausea and this whole…thing. I would particularly be doing so if I was a Green Bay Packers fan. Puke away, Packer Geeks. The rest of the world is with you.

7. “Brett Favre Found Dead in Minnesota Today
From: Pack and Cheese
Thoughts: Fake headlines can be funny. Mocking murder isn’t. OK, maybe in this one case? There are exceptions to every rule, right?

6. “Brett Favre is the Ozzy Osbourne of Football
Compliments of: MTV.com
Analysis: I’m down with comparisons. Speaking of…

5. “Brett Favre Announces Comeback with Vikings; Is Now Offically the Heidi & Spencer of Sports Gossip
From: Bestweekever.tv
My Thoughts: Dig it, even though I don’t really get it. Although it could use a little shortening.

4. “Welcome to the Suck
Compliments of: Deadspin.com
Breaking it Down: The folks at Deadspin still do it right. They say a picture can tell a thousand words, so can four little words accompanying a picture – particularly when that image depicts him plastered across the homepage of Vikings.com.

3. “Honorary Douchebag of the Month: Brett Favre
Courtesy of: Hot Chicks with Douchebags
Analysis: Right up this blog’s traditional alley, everything falls into place here. Pretty wife. Him. Today’s news. Why not hand out the August award now? I completely agree. My exile of the week “award” was far too lenient a distinction.

2. “Get F&%*ed Favre
Source: Beers with Boggs
The Skinny: Short. Simple. Poignant. A powerful headline. And, no, I am not so juvenile that every time someone curses in a post (or a title of a post) I think it’s hilarious. Cut me a little slack. Puh-leez.

1. “F–KING LAZY OLD C–KSUCKER F–K
Source: Big Daddy Drew at Kissing Suzy Kolber
Analysis: For anyone who’s followed BDD, this is not an unpredictable response given prior musings on said possibility. It’s also great because, yes, cursing is sometimes quite funny.

Now, I move on…
