I seriously wish I were joking about this. Really, I hope beyond hope that this is just the beginning and the end for this next media cycle. Even an NFL lockout cannot stop the ole gunslinger from allegedly playing the attention whore card.
The Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Jets, who will be this time? Does anyone even want him? Maybe Favre’s 1,875th retirement and comeback will be much less annoying this time around, as it comes at a time when there is ZERO football news.
From The Big Lead
“I think its great that we’ve moved past talking about Favre and can officially get to talking about talking about Favre. Or in this case, talking about not talking about Favre. Until people are yelling about this on Around the Horn again, I think we can move on. Unless more stories like this one from NFL.com’s Gil Brandt come out.”
That said, I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning. But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.
I’m speechless. I guess Favre is looking to trade in his crocs for spikes again. To put down his cell phone camera and pick up the football another time. Meaning I just threw up in my mouth. And then threw the vomit that was already there onto my shoes. Because there are other similar Favre stories floating around the internet, from similarly credible sources.
Get ready! You’ll never get rid of him, just like you’ll never get rid of Jenn Sterger.
