Brett Favre should have called it a career in 2009.
His final season was marred by injuries, on-field mediocrity and Jenn Sterger, a former New York Jets employee who reportedly received suggestive voicemails, sexual texts and totally unsolicited pictures of Brett Favre naked.
Now Jenn Sterger is ready to tell her side of the story.
This week, Sterger is opening up publicly for the first time, six months after news of Favre’s alleged inappropriate behavior became an Internet scandal.
“I just want my life back,” she tells George Stephanopoulos in a Good Morning America interview to air today and tomorrow. “That’s all I’m asking for.”
In a sense, Sterger’s sit-down with a news outlet was as inevitable as a costly, forced Favre INT (we went there). But why now, when this is all over?Brett Favre was fined $50,000 by the NFL for not cooperating with its investigation into the matter, then retired for the 39th and final time this winter.
She refrained from speaking publicly for months, but that didn’t prevent all of the most embarrassing Favre bits from reaching news organizations.
But will talking with Stephanopoulos help Sterger get her life back, or will it only make moving forward more complicated for her? We'll find out.
