Brett Favre reportedly admits leaving voice mail for Jenn Sterger; 'SNL' parody features Wrangler 'open-fly' jeans [video]
Brett Favre has admitted to NFL officials that he left voice mail messages for Jenn Sterger when both were on the New York Jets' payroll, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday, but denied sending any inappropriate cellphone pictures.
Meanwhile, "Saturday Night Live" concocted a Wrangler "open-fly jeans" ad, offering up the possibilities of such a style as a plus for the photography-minded customer. Check it out above.
Wrangler as of Monday wasn't making any major decisions about its "marketing program," a spokesman told AdAge.
The NFL's continuing investigation depends on whether Sterger participates, TMZ reported Friday. Her manager said Saturday that her silence could not be bought, according to the New York Post, which reported Friday that another call from Favre to Sterger allegedly was placed in June 2009, when the quarterback was in New York working on an HBO film.
According to Deadspin, which broke the story by publishing messages and boy-parts pictures allegedly sent by Favre to Sterger, the pictures and messages came from the same phone number. Deadspin's A.J. Daulerio said Sterger told him about alleged sexts and played a message, but the website purchased the pics from another source. Sterger did not go on the record. Two other women, massage therapists for the Jets, allegedly have reached out to Deadspin and the New York Post with similar stories.
Favre and the Vikings lost on Sunday to the Green Bay Packers, 28-24, and lots of fans were either arrested or just booted from the game.
