What if Brett Favre made one of those “What Should I Do?” commercials like Lebron James did?

Brett Favre vs Lebron JamesGiven his history, the world may never know for certain if Brett Favre will or will not retire, or change his mind about whatever decision he may or may not have made shortly thereafter.

But wouldn’t it be nice — wouldn’t it have been nice — if he asked the masses, sports fans, the people his actions affect the most for advice? You know, like our friend Lebron James did not so long ago?

I mean, things certainly couldn’t have gone much worse, right? Well, I’m not sure if Brett’s version would be this “penis-heavy,” but it probably should be.

All he had to do was ask, you know. Would of saved us all a lot of trouble.

Warning: If “penis” and “dick” are NSFW words where you earn your keep, then there’s some fairly NSFW language in the video

Little late on the Frump Day links today.  All apologies, but “real” work has kind of been occupying my time as of lately.

  • Frump’s questioned some suspicious practices over in Chapel Hill in past, but it seems the hits just keep on coming. Perhaps taking a page out of Ohio State’s book here? [StateFans Nation]

Favre Will Pay Dearly!

December 29, 2010

1 Comment

It is being reported that Brett Favre will be fined around $50,000 or possibly less for sending inappropriate pictures of himself(read: his penis) to Jenn Sterger while they both worked for the Jets. I’m not going to argue that Sterger has any journalistic integrity, you’ll see from the picture below she’s taken that away herself. I will, however, argue that it seemed she really wanted the NFL to take a stand on the issue of inappropriate behavior towards females in the workplace. She even refused to take a payoff from Favre and said she’d drop it as long as the league disciplined him.

Unfortunately, w/ Favre making at least $16 million this year, the reported $50k doesn’t really scream “discipline” to me. Let’s take a look at how this will really affect Favre in the ol’ pockets.

With a salary of $16 million, Favre got paid the following:
$73,732 a completion
$44,692 a pass attempt
$6,377 a yard passed
$1,454,545 a TD
$842,105 an interception
$727,272 each sack taken
$2,285,714 a fumble
$1,230,769 a game
$307,692 a quarter
and most importantly, $4,000,00 a win

Frump Day Links: 12-15-2010 or UNC Fencing Can Be Fun Edition

December 15, 2010

Rabbit fornication artAs much as we’ve tried in the past (and we have), Frump’s never been able to maintain a consistent link dump. Not exactly sure why, but we are pretty dang lazy, so that probably has something to do with it.

Also, believe it or not, Frumpzilla.com only pays a relatively small portion of the bills around our lavish headquarters, so the “real” jobs that we take on in pursuit of  global media domination kind of get in the way at times, too, I guess.

Well, all that may or may not be about to change (except the “real” jobs thing hopefully), because, frankly, not doing this has probably exponentially hurt Frump’s growth and exposure. Oh, and because we just like to spread the little love we have to give whenever we can. That too…

  • B-Diddy’s got a little side project now that I think would make a fantastic coffee table book. Users can submit their own pics, too. Might have to do that myself. Brews from the Phone
  • In honor of Brahsome’s first post in probably close to three months, here’s a nice video of Epic Stretcher Guy. Brahsome
  • For Frump’s N.C. State contingent, R&R looked into WhatIfSports.com’s prediction for the State-West Virginia Champs Sports Bowl — and also found a brilliant UNC typo. Riddick & Reynolds
  • Speaking of embarrassing UNC-related news, Tar Heel athletic scandals apparently aren’t limited to the football team. This one’s REALLY scandalous, too. Like, NSFW scandalous (depending on much you want to explore, so to speak). Busted Coverage
  • Sticking with the scandals theme, was that Jets assistant’s knee-jerk reaction really more of a systematic, staff-wide scheme? The Scores Report
  • Oregon has decided what they’re going to wear whilst trying to take down Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers — and they apparently want Cam to know exactly where they are at all times. Sharapova’s Thigh
  • Meanwhile, in Tampa, Joe Paterno doesn’t need you to be wearing fluorescent green to see you — you’re probably gonna have to speak through a bullhorn for him to hear you, however. SportsByBrooks
  • I’m not a huge hockey fan, but even I knew the answer to this esoteric trivia question. The Last Angry Fan
  • Here’s a nice run down of all the love, or lack thereof, Brett Favre has been getting on Twitter lately. Awful Announcing

Hitler is told about the Vikings bizarre release of Randy Moss…

November 4, 2010

I keep waiting for these Hitler videos to get old. Hasn’t happened yet (at least not for me). To be fair, this one starts off a bit slow – thought it might be the death nail – but, by the end, it’s well worth the 4 minutes. Especially the Brett Favre and Lions jokes…

Is the NFC North inept enough for the Lions to make a title challenge?

Jim Schwartz throwing the greatest challenge flag in NFL history

Jim Schwartz is certainly hoping his Lions can make a run at the playoffs

Assuming Detroit’s goal is to win the NFC North, Week 7 of the 2010 NFL season may have been the Lions most productive performance in quite some time.

Two of the Lions’ three “Norris Division” contenders getting clipped was an obvious positive, and the bye week, of course, meant Detroit was atypically safe from suffering its 6th loss of the season.

The fact that these two blessings coincided, well, again: let’s just say that, for 2.5  NFL seasons, Week 7 was about as good as it gets for the boys in Honolulu Blue.

But wait…there’s more. Let alone the losses themselves, did you happen to catch any of the Packers, Vikings, and Bears this weekend? Oh my, it wasn’t pretty.

If the Packers offense was ever on the same page, it was in different books; Brett Lorenzo Favre played about as well as he would have in a Rascal – and may have actually needed one at the end; and the Bears participated in possibly the sloppiest game in recent NFL memory, not to mention against Detroit’s Week 8 opponent, the Washington Redskins.

Combined, the three active NFC North offenses turned the ball over 11 times in Week 7, and, ultimately, one has to wonder just how capable any of them are of cementing a playoff birth anytime soon.

Enter the Detroit Lions, who, at 1-5, certainly don’t appear any more capable than the rest at first glance.  With a closer look, however, one sees that Jim Schwartz’s team might just have an outside shot at what few ever considered possible…

Brett Favre to endorse Wrangler, really tiny, jeans

We’ve all seen the Brett Favre Wrangler jeans commercial. It has a certain je ne sais quoi about it, you know? Anyway, I guess this is just a natural progression for perhaps the greatest Packer ever. Nowhere to go but up from here…

Conan stoops to Craigslist’s Casual Encounters?

Conando es sessy

We’ve been writing a lot about Conan O’Brien’s plight lately. In fact, I’m pretty sure Frumpzilla may have spearheaded the entire “I’m With Coco” movement, as well as being the first global media entity to bring Earth the brilliant Jay Leno = Brett Favre metaphor (seriously, we were on that latter one).

Well, despite Frump’s efforts, it looks like things have gotten even worse for our dear, dear Coco, as you can see from this LA Craigslist Casual Encounters ad. Read: Conan’s move to Fox may come sooner than expected.

Jay Leno = Brett Favre

January 13, 2010

Jay Leno is Brett Favre

As you’ve been able to tell, we’re staunch supporters of Conan O’Brien.  You’ve probably also noticed we like to straddle that fine line between sports and pop culture in our articles.  So it should come as no surprise that I came up with this comparison amid a conversation last night with Ciaran, a fellow frumpster.  It dawned on me that Jay Leno changing his mind about retiring from late night television closely mirrors Brett Favre deciding(multiple times) he wasn’t ready to retire from the NFL.

Brett leaned towards retiring, actually retired, then came back and in doing so altered the careers of Aaron Rogers of the Packers, Chad Pennington of the Jets, and the two headed monster of Tarvaris Jackson/Sage Rosenfels of the Vikings.  Jay Leno announced retirement, changed his mind and came back and is now in the process of altering the careers of Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and the often forgotten about Carson Daly.  Continue reading after the FRUMP for more on my comparison as well as funny-man Patton Oswalt’s feelings toward Jay Leno after all this mess.

I'm with COCO!
