So yesterday I went viral...

So yesterday to my surprise a picture of me ended up on a blog that gets over a million hits a day. It's a website that I go to often and I borrow pictures from it all the time so I can use them here. The website is called theCHIVE.

So how did my picture come to end up on this site? Well it's an interesting story that in some way ties me to Brett Favre. (yes that Brett Favre) I will tell you the story of course but first here is the picture that showed up on the website: (link to it here)


So who is that and why am I in this picture? That picture was taken at the ACC Championship game in Jacksonville Florida back in 2005. (picture taken by my buddy Absolutgator BTW) In the picture are me, my buddy Mike Fudge, and Jenn Sterger. Why is that name familiar to you? Well Jenn happens to be the person currently in the news because allegedly she received inappropriate voice mails and texts from Brett Favre.

We took this picture as a joke because friends of ours made fun of Mike earlier that year for another picture taken earlier in the football season where Mike wasn't wearing this belt.

The picture at the top clearly shows that Mike is making up for it by wearing his belt.

Last week the authors at theCHIVE were looking for new and unseen pictures of Jenn Sterger for their website (since she is suddenly more famous recently) so I sent them some that I have. The picture at the top was only meant to show that I had actually met her and that the pictures were legitimate. It wasn't supposed to be included in their gallery. Imagine my surprise when I pull up the site yesterday and it was the lead photo. They also weren't supposed to post another picture of one of my friends. Whoops!

Oh well it was fun and now I can officially say that I have gone viral. I may not be famous but I can guarantee one thing. I NEVER sent Jenn Sterger any voice mails or text messages!
