Funny Ed Werder story

    First of all, let me say that I have never visited Hattiesburg Miss, so I can't confirm whether this is true or not. But I will throw it out there for thought. My best friend is from down there. In fact he didn't live far from Favre up the road, and he saw the Ed Werder piece on ESPN where he interviewed Favre and noticed that the shot of Werder at the end of the story appeared to be at a golf course nowhere near Hattiesburg. In fact he said, it's about an hour south of Hattiesburg. And I am guessing there are plenty of hotels in Hattiesburg with low demand for rooms. So it sounds like Ed's chilling on the job allegedly.

    I don't think Favre's house is in Hattiesburg. I think it's about 30 minutes away.

    The Coast casinos have ties here and there to golf courses farther north.

    This is no big deal. If Werder goes out on a piece, he most certainly will have nice digs. It comes with his position.
    You should visit the Coast sometime. It's really nice down there and if you can get in a round of golf, there are at least 10 really good courses spread between the Coast and Hattiesburg.

    An hour away from Hattiesberg doesn't sound like nowhere near Hattiesberg to me.

    Favre lives about 10 minutes from the city limits of Hattiesburg, and there are several very good golf courses there. They aren't as well-known as the ones on the Coast or around Jackson, but they're still pretty solid.

    Also, I wouldn't assume that hotel rooms in Hattiesburg are going begging right now. There is a huge National Guard/Army Reserve training facility nearby that handles units from all over the country, and they usually keep the occupancy level of area hotels at a pretty high rate.

    Fallen Oak, just ranked 27th on Golf Magazine's "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" would be one of those. It's 20 minutes north of Biloxi, next to the DeSoto National Forest.

    Sorry. Couldn't resist shameless plug.

    Perfect. Exactly what I was thinking.
  9. I thought this would include Ed being pissed he didn't recieve the obligatory dong-n-crocs pic from The Favre, but his Cowboy buddies felt bad for him so they had Michael Irvin send a pic of himself beating off in his HOF jacket.

    Perhaps this story is like a New Yorker cartoon where understanding the humor takes some work.

    As a sidebar did you ever wonder why you go down to Hattiesburg and not up

    If you'd ever been to Hattiesburg, you'd know there aren't "plenty of hotels."
    There isn't plenty of anything, except humidity.
