And Your Backpages: September 15, 2008

by Backpageman on September 15, 2008

Brett and the Jets dominate the Troika — and Backpageman has to wonder if Favre ever got this kind of reception in the Green Bay Press Gazette. The good news in all of this is that it pushed another Met bullpen collapse off the Backpages. Is a brutal Met loss not news anymore? Could be. Be nice. They have a case of the Mondays… Your Backpages….

It’s a Sunday of near-Swami-hood. Last night, Backpageman surmised the Backpages would be NIESE COMEBACK or some NIESE pun. Backpageman was not alone. The Heroes came with NIESE & EASY, NIESE WIN, NIESE JOB, NIESE!, NIESELY DONE,

Well, Heroes, the Jets have done it! The Giants did it last year, and now, the Jets have, too! Super Bowl champs! Move over, Broadway Joe, Brett the Jet has done it too! I kid. I kid. But if you look at the Backpages today, you’d think the J-E-T-S JetsJetsJets had won a lot more than a September game against a team that went 1-15 last year. So, no surprise that many, if not most, of the Heroes thought the Mets would own the day, and the 4th place Yanks would at least snag the News. This is the power of the Favre. Hut-hut-HIKE… Your Backpages…

A brief Sunday version. The Troika lead with Brett Favre and what Backpageman has to admit is a nice touch: plays on the number four. A tip of the turban to the News for going the extra mile with the art direction. It’s Sunday, the day of rest for everyone… except your Backpages….

Michael Phelps gave the greatest performance in the history of the modern Olympics. So, what led the Backpages? Brett Favre playing in a pre-season games. Ouch. To be fair, the Troika did put Phelps on the FRONT page. The News: SOLID GOLD. The Post: GR8EST! Newsday: 8. So, take heart would-be Swamis. If there were a Frontpageman, he’d be celebrating your genius. A sidenote: GOLDEN JET. File it away. It’s one of those staples we’re going to see again and again, especially from the second-rate weekend crew at Newsday. Shave down, Heroes. Here they come.

This, Heroes, is manna from heaven. Not only is Brett Favre a Jet but Brett rhymes with Jet, which for Backpageologists is about as good as it gets.

Backpages are fickle bitches, ain't they?
