The words “ankle” and “lubricant” are never ones you want to see together in the same sentence. Especially when said ankle belongs to the man you’re counting on to lead your football team to the championship that has eluded it for all 50 years of its existence.
But, this is the reality Brett Favre – and we – will have to face from here on out. A reality full of reports like Peter King’s about the injection of lube Favre got in his bad ankle after the Seahawks game – a game in which Favre threw 2 interceptions, and also lost a fumble and part of his thumbnail.
At least Brett seems to have a sense of humor about the whole thing, comparing the work done on his ankle to a “grease fitting.”
Well, as long as Brett doesn’t require a whole transmission job or something, I guess everything will be fine.
