Lil Wayne Says There’s No Replacing Bret Favre

The NFL season kicked off last night (September 8)  and football fans everywhere rejoiced. The Green Bay Packers beat the New Orleans Saints 42-34 in a action packed slugfest which came down to a nail biting goal line defending last play by the Cheeseheads.

There is no doubt that one of the biggest sports fanatics this side of the Mississippi, Lil Wayne, had his shades off and was watching the Pack versus his hometown heroes. While Thursday saw only one game played, this weekend, most of the other teams take the field and while the man with the biggest album in the world will enjoy the faceoffs, the NFL will never be the same for Wayne. Birdman, Jr.’s favorite player Brett Favre is retired—seemingly for good this time—and Weezy says there are no replacements.

“Who’s my favorite football player after Brett Favre?” Wayne asked “That’s my favorite football player. I ain’t got no other favorite football player! I’m a grown ass man. You don’t just jump to another nigga; ‘oh that’s my favorite now!’ Nah nigga, that’s my favorite football player; Brett Favre. Ain’t no other nigga could fuck with him.”

Wayne has actually gotten a chance to not just see the future Hall-Of-Famer play live over the years, but the two have met and Weezy even has some signed Favre sports paraphernalia. And when Wayne was in jail last year, Favre, who was a member of the Minnesota Vikings checked on Weezy and sent words of encouragement through then teammate and friend of the Young Money/Cash Money family Brian McKinney.

“Yea, yea. Yea that’s, you know, he from the South,” Wayne said of Favre compassion. “That’s just how we are from here, nah mean? I’m quite sure he’s aware of my admiration for him and his game, his career. He shows the same for me and mine.” —Shaheem Reid

    Everyone has a right to choose a “lifetime” favorite player, but I fail to see how switching to a new favorite player based on their on/off the field actions makes you any less of a grown man. I’m not a diehard fan, and even I can tell the editor and Weezy don’t really care too much about football. Even Green Bay fans are like “Brett Who?”… lol
