The Brett Favre musical

Friday, August 6, 2010

What does quarterback Brett Favre have to do with books? Nothing. But TQO interview subject and New Yorker editor Ben Greenman has written a musical about the perpetually retiring NFL legend, and it's awesome. Behold:

I offer you a portrait of
A great man who can be fickle
That man, you see, is me. It’s me!
I’ve said the same to Rachel Nichols

Why am I damned for waffling?
I did not commit a murder
I merely changed my mind sometimes.
Ask Jay Glazer. Ask Ed Werder.

Granted, that may require some prior knowledge of ESPN personalities to appreciate. If you like that sort of thing, Greenman also wrote a Tiger Woods musical.
