There was a Brett Favre impersonator roaming around Green Bay this weekend, and the social media world was aflutter with jokes about crocks, fake retirements and cell phone photos. And it was all hilarious.
But why would somebody choose to impersonate Favre? Especially in Green Bay? The only place Favre is likely less popular is probably Minnesota or New York. Favre is about as welcome in Green Bay as Nevin Shapiro would be welcomed in Miami.
But that got me thinking (and I know you all hate that) what would be the worst situation for an impersonator to walk into? Here are my six choices.
And without further ado …
6. Art Modell impersonator in Cleveland
Remember the shenanigans around LeBron James and "The Decision?" Yeah, that was not enough to knock Modell off the list of "most hated in Cleveland." So yes, you should probably not go to any Cleveland restaurants to sign autographs as Modell.
5. John Elway impersonator in Cleveland and Baltimore
Speaking of Cleveland, any would-be Elway impersonators should stay out of Cleveland and he should also stay out of Baltimore, too. And if you think about it, if Elway does not burn Baltimore, imagine that the Colts stay there, which means that Modell would not have any place to go which means Elway killed Cleveland both on and off the field.
2. Ryan Leaf impersonator in San Diego
There is likely some sentiment that Eli Manning impersonators should stay out of San Diego -- and they should -- but Leaf might be way worse. Because Leaf apparently wanted to play in San Diego, the only problem was that he was not very good at it.
