Oddest Headline Ever: ‘Lil Wayne’s Spirits Lifted By Brett Favre’s Prayers’ (Wha??)

(head asplodes)

So, Brett Favre is Lil Wayne’s favorite football player. An avid sports fan who has put the so-called “professional analysts” to shame during numerous appearances on ESPN, is currently serving out the final several weeks of his 8-month incarceration (48 days and counting). Eager for his release so he can catch the remainder of the NFL season, the rapper’s spirits were apparently buoyed by the Favres decision to return for a 20th NFL season. According to Young Money President Mack Maine, Wayne was also thrilled to learn that when Favre finally arrived to begin preparations for the 2010 season with the Vikings, he informed Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie that he has been keeping Lil Wayne in his prayers.

Tremendously flattered by the gesture, Wayne’s elation was relayed to MTV News by Maine:

“He’s loving that,” Maine said of Wayne’s feelings about Favre’s decision to play his 20th year in the league. “That gives [Wayne] more incentive to watch this year, because that’s his favorite player. Shout-out to Brett too. Brett reached out, and he made sure I told Wayne that. That was the first thing [Brett] asked when he got back to camp, really. [Vikings tackle] Bryant McKinnie is one of our friends, B-Mac. [Favre] asked B-Mac, ‘How you been?’ B-Mac answered. And he was like, ‘How’s Wayne?’ That was his second question to B-Mac. Those two are real good friends. He said, ‘Let [Wayne] know I been praying for him and send him my love.’ So I let Wayne know that. He said, ‘You just brightened my spirits up for the rest of the month.’ He was real excited.”

Wow. Just wow. When Wayne gets out of prison, those two should definitely get in the studio together and collaborate on some tracks for one of Lil Wayne’s mixtapes. In case you haven’t heard, Brett Favre is totally O.G. (Original Gunslinga).

    CHANGING THE SUBJECT!!!!!!!!!!
    I am wondering why they let women or men reporters in men lockerooms just after they leave the playing field, it seems reasonable that they should have some time to shower and redress before they are interviewed and maybe an interview room separate from the dressing room should be instituted, everybody has rights and that include the players and I am wondering are men let into women lockerooms just after they leave the fieild of play? I dont think so, there’s a reason they have Men and Women bathrooms separate, some common sense needs to prevail here, women have a right to the same access as men reporters, but a little common sense please.

      I’m so glad someone brought this up. I’ve been thinking the same thing – it’s just common sense, yet nobody in the media or on forums mention it.

      I wonder if women, such as the WNBA, would feel comfortable having a man reporter in their dressing rooms while they are in the state of undress or naked? Why is a woman allowed in a men’s locker room? It should be a rule that NO reporters have access to any locker room after a game. Whey can’t reporters wait outside in the hall until the players come out like they used to do?
