Have you ever wanted to write a story about Brett Favre, but you just couldn't find the right words to express your raging hard-on for the guy? Well worry no more, because the Gray Lady's younger, sluttier e-counterpoint has written the perfect formula.
Only Southern Mississippi offered him a scholarship, and wanted the (insert noun) to play defensive back. Favre was a (insert adjective) man in those days. One time, he played six weeks after a (insert adjective) car accident.
His (insert noun) grew. Favre spent one season with the Falcons before they (insert adverb) traded him to the Packers.
I strongly suggest that you go over there and read the full text. They wisely ask their commenters to keep things "clean" but obviously we have no such hangups around here.
