Vocabulary lesson no. 37, to "Brett Favre" someone

Brett Favre, a verb

~ To cause to accept what is false, to misrepresent, most often unintentionally; to beguile, deceive, or hoodwink but not really mean it, as in "I didn't mean to 'Brett Favre' you by saying Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, I was just pretty sure they did."

(Dada says: As a huge fan of Brett Favre, it is noted at the end of the 2006 NFL season, a teary-eyed Brett Favre hinted he'd played his last pro-football game, causing me to share his grief, i.e., I teared up with him. But he was wrong. Hence, after the end of the 2007 NFL season and missing the Super Bowl by, perhaps, one errant pass in an over-time playoff game to the NY Giants, Brett Favre confirmed in the spring of 2008 he'd played his last pro-football game.

But he was wrong again. After a promising start, disappointing finish with the NY Jets, Brett Favre has once more retired. Dada hopes he is not just Brett Favre-ing us, thanks him for years of incredible record setting football, and wishes him a long career as a Fox-Sunday NFL announcer!)

Never forget you buddy. You were one of the all-time greats to play the game. Thanks for the memories!
