A Tale of Two QBs

Seen a few times on social media the past day or two.

Though I much prefer “real football,” as the young miss terms it, I can’t deny the NFL retains a certain drama. Not the least of which is seeing yet another morality play trotted out in this comparison of heroes.

Brett Favre was a hero to many. He took lots of money from billionaires, and in his retirement, gets his spending cash from public assistance. It wouldn’t surprise me–or any of us–to learn how many retired athletes depend on it for their daily bread. Volleyball courts, not so much.

If support for Colin Kaepernick all those years ago would have directly eased racial tensions, I can imagine a lot of white people would be burning down their own buildings to avoid it.
