Does Your Grandpa Slap Other Men’s Butts? Can He Throw A Football Through A Piece Of Sheet Metal?

Larry Fitzgerald of the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder reports that if Brett Favre decides to play another season in the NFL, he could become the first ever active player to be a grandfather.

Fitzgerald reports that Favre’s oldest daughter, Brittany Nicole, is due to have her first child fairly soon.

It is weird to think of any NFL player as a grandpa, so I immediately questioned whether this article (dated March 30th) was an April Fool’s joke.

Given the taboo that would have been broken by claiming that another man’s daughter is pregnant when she is not, I have to assume this report is legit.

So, our starting quarterback is going to be a grandpa.

    Hey it’s Larry Fitzgerald. i wish the football version came to his hometown team

  3. coolio says:

    adam I sent you an email did you get it. Its with a new email address so it might be in junk for you

  4. coolio says:

    really it does? i’ll try to change it. This ones actually from me

  5. coolio says:

    It’s a guest article from my site. it should be from a different e-mail

    Congrates Grampa Brett!!!
    Yeah, that is Weird…

  7. PJDiaries says:

    I’ve heard from some insider message boards last fall that one of his daughters was pregnant but nothing else. So it may be true. The kid would be born by the fall time. Maybe the Vikings can sign him right away …

    Actually, grandpas are more capable people than we sometimes get credit for. But hearing this gets me started thinking…

    I’ll bet George Blanda was close to being a grandpa.

    You tell ’em Buds!!

    In facts Buds, word has it you can sing “Pants on the Ground”, better than Banjo did last year. True?

    • B. Grant says:

      Freds, the rumor is true. I know the right words too. However, my children would insist that I only sing it in the shower, and Mrs. Grant would agree. I don’t believe anyone ever heard me sing in public, and I will keep that record intact.

  10. Fragile Freds says:

    Fred wonders how Brett gets along with his son in law?

  11. Purple Charlie says:

    Hey Coach, Old George was 48 when he kicked his last field goal back in 76′

    So he had to be close…

    • B. Grant says:

      Thanks Charlie, and I would guess that Mr. Stenerud may also have come dangerously close to the grandfather player category.

  12. Norseman66 says:

    Don’t forget about Morten Andersen. He has over 47 years old and still kicking it. (no pun intended)

  13. Norseman66 says:

    has = was

    • bigjohnny84 says:

      Hey Norse, how old was Gary Anderson when he finally hung it up. He was getting pretty long in the tooth also.

  14. Norseman66 says:

    Gary Andersen was 45 years old when he played in his last year in 2004.

  15. Norseman66 says:

    That’s alright. The therapy sessions seem to working these days. At least I don’t go hide in my closet anymore when I see or read his name. Wait…standby, I’ll be back in 10 minutes!:)

  16. bigjohnny84 says:

    It’s a damn shame that all we remember about him was one missed kick. Kinda feel sorry for him because he wasnt the only one that choked in that game.

  17. c.carterhof says:

    Gary who? Never heard of him!

  18. Adam Warwas says:

    Yeah I watched NFL Network’s top 10 blunders (or something like that) last night. Anderson was like #6, Marshall was #1.

    The bit out Phil Luckett was my favorite part, however.

  19. B. Grant says:

    I have a rather obscure annoyance from most others about the ’98 championship game. Robert Smith running out of bounds when all we needed to do was keep the clock moving is still my greatest pet peeve. At least Anderson’s was a physical “just miss”. RS was more of a blunder from this coach’s perspective.

    I. Love. This.

  21. […] heard about this months ago from a well plugged in message board full of jack off college kids, but Vikings Gab recently picked up on this again after Larry Fitzgerald (Senior?) spilled some more beans about it, […]
