Brett Favre Impersonator Should Put a Bag Over His Head

Brett FavreI have just one question for the Brett Favre impersonator who has been walking around Green Bay, Wisconsin this week in a Number 4 Packers jersey, signing autographs and snapping pictures with the fans. Why, in the name of all that is holy, would you do this to yourself? Why, man? Why?

Kirk Ermatinger is a Brett Favre lookalike who apparently hails from Ripon, Wisconsin, so he went over to check out Packers practice wearing his favorite jersey. Fans say he then showed up at area bars, passing himself off as the real deal. Needless to say, they're a bit P-O'd to have been tricked by the impostor.


After Ermatinger apologizes to them, he might want to take a second look at what he's doing to himself.

The fake Ichiro Suzuki who was wandering around Safeco Field a few weeks back was weird enough. But at least the Seattle Mariners rightfielder is known for being a pretty stand-up guy. He donated $1.25 million to the Japanese tsunami relief efforts. He's the kind of guy who shows up to work early and puts his all into the game.

And then there's Brett Favre. Who can't make up his mind about whether or not he actually wants to stay retired. Who has cheated on his beautiful wife (and breast cancer survivor) Deanna countless times. Who got caught sending pictures of his penis to an unsuspecting victim last year. The dude may be a Super Bowl winner, but he's kind of a d-bag.

It seems that being a Brett Favre lookalike would be a big enough albatross hanging around Kirk Ermatinger's neck without him actually dressing the part and pissing off the man's remaining fans. If you are mistaken for Ichiro Suzuki, you might get asked for an autograph. If you're mistaken for Brett Favre, you might get your face pounded in.

If Ermatinger really knew what was good for him, he'd invest in a Steelers jersey. Or maybe just a paper bag with some eye holes?

If you looked like a famous jerk would you be celebrating it?
