What Makes the Brett Favre and Jenn Sterger Saga Different from Tiger Woods

Back in August, Deadspin revealed allegations that quarterback Brett Favre sent text messages of his penis and left voicemails for a Jets female employee despite being married. This week, the website caused an even bigger stir when they released the alleged voicemails, cock shots, and myspace messages from Favre to Jenn Sterger, the former Jets employee.

This marks the second time in less than a year that one of our sports heroes has been involved in an improbable sex scandal. Much like the Tiger Woods scandal which started off with a National Enquirer report, people are doubting the truth of this incident.

At this point, most indications are that this tale indeed took place and that Brett Favre has been caught sexting another woman and attempting to cheat on his wife. So aside from the reticence of most media members to address this story, what makes it different from Tiger Woods?

Two factors, and I’ll explain each one.

Ochocinco Publishes a Little (Alleged) Sexcapade on His Twitter Account

Depending on how much of a Chad Ochocinco fan you are, his Twitter account may have become a serious TMI situation for you on Thursday night.  Unless Chad is a complete liar — which I wouldn’t doubt — he went on a blind date with a 57-year-old woman.  It would appear he was keeping his partner in crime up to speed with all the happenings of the date via Twitter.  He Tweeted everything from who was paying for the meal to how they (allegedly) ended up in the sack together.  It sounds like this time Russell the Love Muscle was involved.  Want dirty details? He’s got those, too.  Check out some of these Tweets.

And for the grand finale…

NFL Wants Senator Feingold to Remove Randy Moss Moon From Campaign Ad

The NFL has ordered Senator Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) to remove a brief, but infamous, clip of Randy Moss pretending to moon the Lambeau Field crowd from his campaign ad.  I have to say, I’m with Shutdown Corner on this one in thinking the NFL is doing Feingold a favor.  I don’t even understand what he’s trying to get at and I’m sure people from Wisconsin don’t need to see that again.  See for yourself:

I’ll admit, I’ve done the same thing with a few school projects before.  A few of my friends and I have been known to see a sports clip or something and vow to force it into our PowerPoint presentation one way or another.  It usually goes over well with the sports fans in the class and is a complete miss with everyone else, oftentimes including the teacher.  That’s pretty much what I see happening here with Feingold’s campaign.

Titans Defensive Coordinator Chuck Cecil Flips Off the Refs (Picture)

The Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos are in a tight game right now and emotions are flying — clearly.  I don’t know what the exact call was that had Titans defensive coordinator so fired up at the refs, but he’d better set a few bucks aside for the fine he has coming after showing his discontent.  Since we love our middle finger moments here at LBS, here’s a picture of Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil flipping the refs the bird:

USC Coach Takes an Epic Spill (Video)

It’s come to our attention that USC lost on Saturday in more ways than one.  Their team, of course, lost a tough game to unranked Washington on a last-second field goal.  However, one of the members of the Trojans coaching staff may be hurting more than anyone on Sunday.  Check out this video of a fat USC coach wiping out, courtesy of YouTube user jgregorio62:

It looked like someone literally swept the rug out from under his feet. That can’t have felt good.

Sanford Health Ad on Target Center Upsetting Twins (Picture)

Whatever Sanford Health paid to put a giant advertisement on Target Center in downtown Minneapolis, they’ve certainly gotten their money’s worth based on the free advertising from the controversy they’ve created. The Twins are upset that the Timberwolves have sold a giant advertisement on the outside of their arena, right in time for the baseball playoffs. That means fans and viewers will be stuck with an eyesore hovering over the beautiful view of the city’s skyline. Not only that, it also means the Timberwolves and Sanford Health are capitalizing on the Twins’ success for added exposure. Here’s what the ad and skyline will look like according to a photo obtained by MinnPost.com:

Will the Twins counter with a billboard of their own erected in right field? I doubt it. Maybe the city will figure out a way to solve it. As it is, I don’t think most people would have noticed or given a second thought to the ad before this story hit the news wire.

Duke Student Karen Owen Details Her Sexcapades with Blue Devil Athletes

Duke University students and officials have found themselves under an assault of media attention for the wrong reason once again — kind of.  At the moment, it doesn’t appear any of the Blue Devils that were listed in Karen Owen’s phony senior thesis, which outlines sexual encounters she had over her college career with Duke student athletes, actually did anything wrong.

Yes, you read that correctly.  A young woman from Duke University actually chronicled — in detail — sexual experiences she had with 13 different student athletes.  In the full thesis, which can be read at Deadspin in its entirety with the “subjects” names, Owen gives each partner a raw score out of 10 based on various grading criteria such as the size of their hardware, how attractive they are, how aggressive they were, how creative they were, how entertaining they were, and their athletic ability.
