Though so much has been made about Brett Favre allegedly sexting and leaving inquisitive voice mails for former Jets employee Jenn Sterger (the two-year anniversary of Favre’s final attempt is today, people. Did anybody order a cake?), there hasn’t been too much talk about why Favre got caught.
Texas Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson has the answer. Wilson says that in a technological sense (and perhaps in a matrimonial sense), Favre isn’t too smart.
From an interview with SI.com’s Jimmy Traina.
SI.com: The Brett Favre texting scandal was also a major story. What is with this phenomenon of athletes texting naked pictures of themselves?
Wilson: I think getting caught with that kind of stuff is directly related to technological intelligence. If you have a high tech IQ, you don't get caught. If you have a low tech, then you're gonna get caught doing stupid stuff. I have no sympathy for Favre. He gets exposed now for a multitude of different things, and maybe that's better. Maybe that will encourage him to stop holding the nation hostage every year while he decides if he wants to play or doesn't want to play.
Wow, thought-provoking and snarky at the same time. Good stuff.
So, let that be a lesson to everybody out there. Get a high technological IQ, and you’ll be all right. If not, don’t bother sexting a co-worker, because it probably won’t end well.
