Favre, the Penns, The Eagles, and Mr. Eko could all learn something from Yoda

Welcome to the Blade blog Culture Shock, a three-times-a-week riff by Pop Culture Editor Kirk Baird on pop culture news, events, and trends. The blog will appear Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings here, with the odd night or off-day posting if something is merited.

Today s quick link day has a theme: "Do or do not. There is no try (or backing out, or changing your mind)."

First up

Future NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre who's the poster boy for indecision, as seen in this USA Today timeline.

Sean and Robin-Wright Penn. This time, she filed the divorce papers. Just do it already. And for those keeping score of many celebrity relationships, go here for a quick refresher of who is dating/married to whom. (The site does need to be updated, though. It still list Guy Ritchie and Madonna as being married.)

The Eagles


The Who


Mr. Eko

And we all know politicians are famous for doing the opposite of what they say. Perhaps a category of these failed political promises is in order
