If you’ve read my bio you know that here at Magnolia Marketplace, we’re huge sports fans, specifically ones that involve helmets and shoulder pads. Aside from probably Michael Vick, the biggest NFL story the past few months has been the will-he-or-won’t-he regarding Brett Favre coming out of retirement for what seems like the 20th time and playing this season.
Reports emerging this morning have Favre on a plane to Minnesota to sign with the Vikings. Click here for the details. Brett Favre is one of two football heroes I’ve ever had — Jerry Rice is the other — but this has story has been old since this time last year. Now it’s just aggravating.
This reminds me of the Motley Crue song, “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away).”
To paraphrase the lyrics, “Brett, don’t go away mad. Brett, just go away.”
I bet there are a few folks in Green Bay thinking that this morning. Since the Vikings are the Packers’ blood rival, they’re probably thinking a lot worse, too.
