What Has Really Happened Today? by LIFER, Blog of the Stars, FanNation.com

This morning, I was (luckily) able to learn from many news outlets that Brett Favre sent a text message to the Packers GM, Ted Thompson. Maybe next time they can tell us every time Brett Favre picks up a phone, let alone uses it. Heck, with enough work, we’ll be able to know how many times Brett Favre takes a dump per day!
