What has Brett Favre gotten himself involved in now? He’s hawking some pain cream that sounds awfully shady. Oh, and he’s also gone and invested in the company.
During an interview on SiriusXM earlier this month, Favre went on an unprompted rant about the cream, which is called Rx Pro.
“I can speak volumes on pain and narcotics use,” Favre told SiriusXM hosts Jim Miller and Bruce Murray, noting that he was once addicted to painkillers. Rx Pro, he said, “is a safe way to treat some of your ailments. It even works with cramps, stomach pain…It’s just endless what will happen with this product and this company.”
So what’s the shady part? The president of the company the makes Rx Pro says he thought the product was FDA-approved. Meanwhile, Don Walker reports that the FDA has given no such approval for Rx Pro, which is available only by prescription.
Also, the president of the company declined to tell Walker the ingredients of the cream. And it gets better.
Byron Barrett, the president of the sports medicine unit of World Health Industries — the company that makes Rx Pro, said Joseph Story, who was instrumental in the creation of the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine with renowned surgeon James Andrews but is no longer involved with the institute, was a partner with his brother at World Health Industries. Byron Barrett also said that some doctors at the Andrews Institute also were involved with Rx Pro, but didn’t say in what way.
Ashley Chisholm, marketing director for Andrews Institute, said she was not aware of any connection between the Andrews Institute and Rx Pro. As for Andrews, Chisholm said he had no relationship with the company and wasn’t an investor. While Andrews knew Story in the past, the two currently have no business relationship, she said.
This seems like it’s going to go reeeeeeeeal well.
Does this seem like some sort of Bus Cook scheme to anyone else? It probably is, considering Favre’s agent also invested in the company.
The label will have a shriveled up penis on the label.
I can’t believe ‘boob cream’ is making a comeback and Favre is slinging it. And we paid this guy how much? $100MM? Then the Jets and the Shitbags paid him another $36MM.
How many rednecks do you have to support or how much moonshine can you possibly buy that you have to start shilling snake oil to make ends meet?
I think Forrest needs to get a bigger piece of property to mow.
I could see the Ol’ Dong Slinger traveling throughout the old West on horseback, going from town to town, laying down the dong on the town folk, and leaving them some ointment to cure what ails ‘em. Whataguy!
show some respect from the person who resurected our team. Perfect? no. Are you?
Just get over it!!
He may be talking about Mike Holmgren. I would say either him or Ron Wolf, not sure though.
The Berty apologists always overlook the contributions of Bob Harlan, Ron Wolf, Mike Holmgren.
Berty was a disappointment after Holmgren, and was on trac to be a bust before the Trifecta picked him up and put him in Green Bay.
Number Four did not resurrect this team. The Trifecta ALONG WITH Four did.
Bonita, is that you?
new and improved! now with more vicodin.
Favre has enough money it won’t matter.
E. Wolf, I’d have to throw #92 in there as well. Not just for his play, but getting players to even think about coming to GB.
Yes but I think he was a less essential element, if you will, than those three. Without those three in the equation, I do not feel there would have been a Brett Favre as he came to be. And the proof is in the pudding. NO ONE was ever able to coach the guy, before or since EXCEPT THE WALRUS!
Fer shiz. All I’m saying is that If the conversation is about “resurrecting” the team, and you’re throwing Burt in with the trifecta, a strong case could be made Reggie should be in there too. Nobody wanted to come to GB before the minister arrived.
That Super Bowl team was definitely a result of the chemical reaction from all these components placed together. Remove any one of those crucial components, and thing would be very different.
