Finally, a story about a New York Jets quarterback that isn't Tim Tebow or Mark Sanchez! What a relief.
ASSOCIATED PRESS: "Brett Favre will have to testify in court about sexually suggestive text messages."
The retired quarterback will appear in a Manhattan court to testify about text messages sent to two massage therapists who worked with the Jets during Favre's season in New York.
Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole filed a lawsuit last January alleging that the quarterback sent suggestive texts, treated them like a "hanging slab of meat" and was part of a workplace that was a "hot bed of sexual harassment, sexism and inappropriate behavior." They allege that they were fired from their part-time positions after Scavo's husband complained about the texts to Favre.
The lawsuit does not directly relate to the case of Favre's infamous cell phone pictures, for which he received a $50,000 fine from the NFL.
The Jets called the lawsuit "completely without merit" and tried to have it thrown out of court. The presiding judge dismissed their claim.
In one of the alleged texts, Favre seems to suggest a three-way get-together with the therapists.
"Brett here. You and Crissy want to get together? I'm all alone. Kinda lonely tonight. I guess I have bad intentions."
Or he could have been referring to how he was planning on watching "Dirty, Sexy Money" at 10 p.m. on ABC. We can't really know for sure.
"If I were Brett Favre, I wouldn't want to raise my right hand either — except to throw a football," the women's attorney, David Jaroslowicz, told the New York Daily News.
I don't know if that double entendre was meant to be a triple entendre, but it was nice either way. The franchise has its work cut out for it because this David Jaroslowicz sounds like a regular Clarence Darrow.
The Jets say they're looking forward to defending themselves in court, although it doesn't really sound like they mean it because of the whole "trying to get it thrown out" thing.
