First, let me disclose to anyone who doesn't know me that if you cut me open, I bleed green and gold and cheese for the Green Bay Packers. Because of this, and not despite this, I have remained one of Brett Favre's biggest fans through the good times and the bad.
I wish the best for him personally.

But news coverage of his ankle has gone from the silly to the ridiculous – with stories including nothing but meaningless terminology that doesn't inform anyone.

For instance:

  • Peter King of Sports Illustrated posted an article claiming that Favre is “already taking injections in his wounded ankle.”
  • Favre “got an injection of lubricant in the left ankle that has three times been operated on to remove loose bodies. Like a grease fitting,” he said.

Lubricant? What is that lubricant? WD-40? Or, given Brett's age and advertising popularity, is it a new product called BF-40? Grease?
