BBAO: Brett Favre pitching pain cream

By Kevin Seifert

We're Black and Blue All Over:

The man who set an NFL record by starting 297 consecutive games is now a pitchman and investor in a pain cream that he has been using in retirement. Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has details of Favre's journey and an impromptu infomercial he launched into during a recent interview with SiriusXM radio.

The cream requires a prescription and does not appear to be FDA approved, according to the Journal Sentinel. The president of the company that produces it said it has no ingredients that are banned in the NFL but declined to provide an ingredient list.

Favre's sojourn into this realm will be interesting not only because of his own well-documented history with narcotics but also in the current NFL atmosphere of intense scrutiny on pain killers. It will be worth following.
