Brett Favre has prayed for Lil' Wayne; brightened his spirits

Due to a weapons possession charge, omnipresent rapper Lil' Wayne is spending his time now, and will be for the next 48 days, at the Rikers Island correctional facility.

How's he keeping his spirits up? With the prayers and affirmations of Brett Favre(notes), of course.

MTV reports that the Minnesota Vikings quarterback expressed to Bryant McKinnie, a teammate of Favre's and a friend of Wayne's, that Wayne was in Favre's prayers. Here's the quote from Young Money's Mack 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(notes) 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."

Because of his stints on ESPN's "1st and 10," I knew Weezy was a Favre fan, but I did not know that Favre was a fan of Weezy F. Baby. This is one of the few things I've found that I have in common with Brett Favre. I guess the guy likes to put on the Wranglers, toss the ball around a muddy field, get in his pick-up truck and rock out to "Mrs. Officer." Who knew?

I bet this will end up earning Favre a mention on "The Carter IV."
