Yes, it’s true. Not even half an hour between the time SportsCenter went live with their mention of Jay Glazer’s report that the Jets had traded for Brett Favre did the team’s official site begin hawking Brett Favre merchandise.
Now you might be wondering how I came across such information knowing full well that I’m neither a Favre nor a Jets fan. Interestingly enough, I was hanging out Wednesday night, pleased that Favre finally got traded, only to receive a text message from my good buddy Trevor Leb who’s currently living in New York. Being the proper sports fan that he is, you can only imagine the content of the message: “I just made the biggest impulse buy of my life … 2 season tix to the NY Jets!” Ticket prices must have skyrocketed from the time that he made his purchase until now. And the Jets’ first home game is against the Patriots — Brett Favre vs. Tom Brady? Are you kidding me?!
So yeah, that didn’t take long … less than an hour after the trade was reported, the Jets site was already hawking Brett Favre Jets jerseys. Nice. As for those Brett Favre Buccaneers jerseys, you ask? Probably on their way to Nicaragua right about now.Google+
