Florida Couple Names Twins Born Yesterday Brett and Favre

3/5/08 in NFL   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect

It's been really refreshing to see that the sports world hasn't been overreacting to the Brett Favre retirement news. I mean, ESPN hardly even touched on the matter and Packers fans seem to be taking this in stride.

Or not.

First there was mass pilgrimage to Lambeau Field to pay their respects. Then there's the Pro Football Hall of Fame being inundated with phone calls from eager fans inquiring about seats to the 2013 Induction Ceremony. But none of these stories pales in comparison to what a Florida couple did yesterday.

Dave and Emily Kinsaul, diehard Packers fans, gave birth to twin boys yesterday. It was a joyous moment that helped them forget about the sad news regarding #4.

That didn't mean he wasn't in their thoughts, however. In fact, they named their twins Brett and Favre. That's right, Brett Kinsaul and Favre Kinsaul have been welcomed into Packer nation.

I would expect Brett's childhood to go rather smoothly, but I'm afraid Favre is facing a lifetime of alcohol and vicodin jokes. Sadly, this is only the beginning. The couple plans to have a third child named Interception.

Now that's a way to get your kids beat up on a daily basis.

And if he cried all the time, then they would get made fun of for being a Sapp

It could be worse.  Since they are in Florida, they could have been Warren Sapp fans....

Will the last sane people in Florida please turn off the lights and then please sink the state.

I wonder if I can get away with naming my kids Ryne and Sandberg?

Just because of that comment, I might have to consider naming my kid ChristiSunshine.

That would be one really angry dog.

His middle name is Moses.  So it's a crappy yet biblical name.

Man, that kid better be really good at sports or be really really ridiculously good looking or school will be tough.

That first day of school will be tough, the teacher calling him Fav-Re. I hope he has a good middle name.

The poor Favre kid is going to spend his whole life wondering what would've happened if he was born first and was named Brett.  He's screwed.
