Brett Favre was open about his addiction to painkillers during his playing career. But he has just revealed his Womens Tim Anderson Jersey struggle with addiction hung over his life for longer than he had previously disclosed.
It was pills then too. Deanna and [agent] Bus [Cook] talked me into it. I didn’t think I had a problem, but they talked me into it. I went for 28 days. When I got out, I was able to control myself for a while. I wouldn’t take anything for a day or two, and I wouldn’t drink. But I was a binge drinker. When I drank, I drank to excess. So when I went in the second time, to the place in Kansas, I remember vividly fighting them in there. They said drinking was the gateway drug for me, and they were right, absolutely right, but I wouldn’t admit it. I will never forget one of the nurses. I had it all figured out. I fought with this nurse all the time. I would not admit the drinking problem. At the end she said to me, ‘You’ll be back.’
Curtis Samuel Kids Jersey I was back. 1998. Guess who was waiting there when I walked in鈥攖hat same nurse. This time it was strictly for drinking. I didn’t go back to the pills. I admitted my problem, I was in there 28 days, and it worked.

Favre managed a 20-year NFL career, while fighting through much of it with a harder battle than anyone knew.
Gardenhire never managed Berrios, but the right-hander was a rising star in the farm system during the end of his tenure with the Twins.
You can see him understanding probably what hitters are trying to do a little bit more, Gardenhire said. He’s always had that fastball, and he’s very athletic out there. You knew it was just a matter of time.
Max Kepler hit a two-run double in the fifth off Tigers starter Blaine Hardy to tie the game and nearly gave the Twins the lead that inning, but he was ruled out at home trying to score on Eduardo Escobar’s two-out single to left field. The original safe call was reversed by replay review that declared catcher James McCann’s tag clipped Kepler’s back just before his leg slid across the plate. Kepler thought his drive off the tall wall in right-center was going to reach the seats, and his admiration might have cost him a triple.
Morrison made sure that potential mistake didn’t matter by keenly watching Tigers reliever Daniel Stumpf (1-3) throw four straight balls with the bases loaded after Gardenhire elected to intentionally walk Mitch Garver.
