After Randy Moss was suddenly waived by the Minnesota Vikings, head coach Brad Childress thought us fans would take kindly to being reminded that we “still have Hank Baskett.”
Baskett has one catch for 18 yards since joining the Vikings, but his bad luck in Minnesota doesn’t stop on the football field.
His wife Kendra Wilkinson, famous for a variety of reasons, has repeatedly complained about having to travel to Minnesota in recent episodes of her reality show which regularly features Baskett (or so I hear, I’ve never watched the damn thing). Avoiding Minnesota like the plague, and treating the State like it is toxic, has not settled well with her Minnesota fans and Baskett may be trying to smooth things over.
On a recent interview with E! Wilkinson revealed more about how their long distance relationship is working out when the host made a crack about him being influenced by the sexting Brett Favre.
“Hey, Hank’s hanging out with his own penis right now. OK?” she said. “Now we have to do the whole Skype thing.”
In addition to continuing way too far into Baskett’s love life, she revealed that his teammates constantly make fun of the wide receiver (does one catch qualify him as one?) for having a massive amount of chest hair. While the players tell him to do something about it, Kendra prefers him the way he is.
So, there you have it. You now know more about Brad Childress’ favorite wide out than you ever wanted to.
And, no, you are not alone. I can’t believe I bothered to write this post either.
