Ochocinco won’t let Favre steal his spotlight

The budding “bromance” between Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens — forever to be known as T.O.cho Cinco — has had its feathers ruffled because all of the attention heaped on Brett Favre‘s latest indecision.

And Ochocinco, as he is prone to do, took to Twitter to voice his displeasure.

“@terrellowens Batman, Brett Favre is stealing all the ESPN air time about his decision, we have to steal the spotlight back Batman, hurry,” Ochocinco wrote.

“@terrellowens How come Favre isn’t a attention whore but we get hell for having fun but he makes a spectacle about coming back its cool? Wtf.”

Of course, Wtf translated means, “Why the face?” Or at least that is what I learned from Modern Family.

You do, however, have to admire Ochcocinco’s honestly about the attention that Favre is receiving. I just knew that some of the players had to be jealous. Who would not be? Favre’s all over the television now. Even the kids from Twighlight feel that he is overexposed.

But I would disagree that fans are not annoyed with Favre Watch. Plenty of people are making jokes at Favre’s expense. And in the case of Jay Leno, they are making unfunny jokes about Favre. Favre has been compared to Bristol Palin, and been ripped by Rodney Harrison and made fun of to some degree by Brian Urlacher and Reggie Bush.

Yeah, think about that for a moment. The guy who dated Kim Kardashian and nearly killed the USC football program thinks you are getting too much attention.

Even Kurt Warner got into the mix and made a joke about coming out of retirement.

So 85 should not confuse media attention with admiration, because it certainly is not there. Not, of course, until Favre compares himself to Donkey and Shrek, though. Although it would be fair to say that Favre is making a donkey out of all of us.
