Brett Favre is the Santa Claus of Wrangler Jeans

April 15, 2010

Rather than spend the offseason fighting adult onset diabetes or informing ownership about his plans to return for the 2010 campaign, Brett Favre recently decided that the best way to show his commitment to the Minnesota Vikings was to buy every player a pair of Wrangler jeans.

Much like your grandfather who still thinks mittens and racial slurs are acceptable offerings at the Christmas dinner table, the 40-year-old quarterback gave his teammates a gift that provoked a “smile and say thank you” response that haunts young children every holiday season.

"I need to break them in a little bit, they are kind of stiff," punter Chris Kluwe told NBC while searching for some sort of return policy on the price tag.

It’s almost like Favre doesn’t understand kids (or complex nickel packages) anymore.
