    ESPN to attempt record number of Favre mentions...

    DOESN"T WORK: http://awfulannouncing.blogspot.com/2009/09/espn-to-use-sports-nation-to-****-you.html

    ESPN hopes to hype records for its Green Bay-Minnesota game Monday night. Literally. ESPN, says spokesman Mike Soltys, will announce that on next Monday's broadcast of its ESPN2 SportsNation (5 p.m. ET), it will try to set a record for the most mentions of Brett Favre on a TV show — with Guinness World Records now looking for the current record. Some records should never be broken.

    Re: ESPN to attempt record number of Favre mentions...

    That's not much different than normal. Here's an espn topic list:
    Giants love/hate Eli
    Jets suck/rule
    Yankees suck/rule
    why the Mets suck
    Favre retired/unretired/threw a td/soul crushing pick to end a game
    TO said something dumb
    Romo's dating/dumping jessica
    Lebron coming to NY?
    then five minutes of top tens/worst tens

    The article quotes something else but doesn't attribute it. I'm guessing it's fake.

    Well, that is a possibility. I'm just thinking they won't be trying it on purpose and having Guinness get in on it.

    Brett Favre pulled a Brett Favre on Sunday while Farve fans watched in amazement.

    Reminds me of Super Troopers and the "Meow"

    Re: ESPN to attempt record number of Favre mentions...

    The article mentions that they're only going to try this during their "SportsNation" show on Monday. Since nobody watches that show anyway, this seems to be nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to generate ratings.

    It's also interesting that Guiness does not what the record is.
