an you imagine Brett Favre and Prince hanging out? Wouldn’t these be the two least likely dudes you’d expect to see spending time together? Both of them wearing purple, sitting outside a Minnesota café, people-watching, Brett drinking cold draft beer while Prince sips his mocha latte? Would Prince don his best purple Wranglers for the occasion? How many awkward moments of silence would take place between the two? And which one do you think would be more nervous about hanging out with the other? You’d have to think Prince, right?
Do you think Favre has ever purchased a Prince CD, and if so, which one? I would think everyone at one point in their life has popped Purple Rain into their CD player… or at least paused the part of the movie where Appolonia walks out of Lake Minnetonka butt naked.
If I Wanna Be Your Lover came on the radio while Favre was driving his pickup truck, would he turn it up, change the station or wince unknowingly wondering what the hell that noise was coming out of his radio? Did he laugh at Dave Chappelle’s Prince skit? Has he ever tapped his muddy work-boot to Raspberry Beret? I mean, if he’s hip to the soulful sounds of Pants on the Ground, you’d have to think he has a soft spot for Prince.
