Tuesday 06/23 A.M. Quickie:
Linking Brett Favre to Jon & Kate Plus 8

Jon & Kate Gosselin are like America's royalty. That was painful to consider, let alone write.

Their TV show attracts insane volumes of viewers. Their presence on covers sells magazines like no celebrity out there. Their names dominate Google searches. This is simply the reality.

And, so, with last night's "big announcement" (divorce), there was no way I wasn't going to find a way to link Jon & Kate to sports in today's SN column.

Good thing Brett Favre makes it so easy: Because he is the Jon & Kate of sports -- you loathe them for the media whoredom, yet you can't look away. Non-news becomes news.

And just as the divorce was obvious, so is Favre's return to the NFL with the Vikings.

There you have it: Who's the PV-monger now, Brett/Jon/Kate? This guy.

More in today's column:
*Snooziest. US Open champ. Ever.
*Loving Pitt's Sam Young as NBA Draft gem.
*Ahh, if only anyone actually liked college baseball.
*Yes, Manny Being Minors, but how about the Rox?
*Know the Name: Aaron Shutway.

Complete column here. More later.
