There are a number of ways to make $1 million. Among the easiest, in terms of effort, might be winning the lottery. But if you’re a three-time NFL MVP, an 11-time Pro Bowler and a polarizing figure back for his 20th NFL season, all you have to do is grow gray.


We’ve received word that the good people who make Go Away Gray™ have offered Brett Favre a cool $1 million to get rid of his gray hair for five consecutive years. According to a press release, all Favre has to do is take an all-natural pill (assuming this works, there are many details) throughout the 2010 NFL season and share his experiences with the new look via social media.

That’s about as easy as it gets. Keep in mind, though, it’s thought that Favre could make up to $28 million in 2010.

The company, Rise-N-Shine, LLC, says it made the same offer to Anderson Cooper last month, and he passed.  We fully expect Favre to waffle on this decision for several months, but it’s likely he’ll only grow more gray in the process.

Now that marketing ideas are at the forefront, someone who makes beard clippers should seek out the beard (find it at #TheBeard or follow it @OfficialBraylon ) grown by Jets WR Braylon Edwards.
