Coincidence? Eli Manning (above) proclaims to be in the same QB stratosphere as Tom Brady just days before the premiere of "Idiot Brother."
FE FI FAUX FAVRE
A man with a striking resemblance to Brett Favre has been impersonating the ex-QB at Packers practice and local sports bars, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported. There's no doubt it's a phony, veteran Favre-watchers say: This guy isn't giving any indication he intends to quit.
"Giants closer Brian Wilson was diagnosed with elbow inflammation," noted David Thomas of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Apparently it was a result of spending too much time combing his beard."
PENALTY ON THE PLAY
The four LSU football players that police want to question in connection with a bar fight have hired a lawyer, Baton Rouge police say. No word on the defense's strategy, but prosecutors reportedly plan to put 12 in the box.
PARTY FOR 12, PLEASE
A judge has been asked to sequester the 12 people who: a) will make up the jury in the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor. b) regularly attend Florida Marlins games.
