We're celebrating in Minnesota
Today Brett Favre announced his retirement from professional football - again. That's a reason to celebrate if one is a Vikings fan, which I am (most of the time). Number Four had "only" 24 touchdown passes against the Vikings. In other words, he owned us. So, for that reason there is rejoicing in Vikingsland. However, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed watching him. He started every game for the Pack for 16 years. He threw for a NFL record of TWELVE MILES while achieving other NFL records too numerous to list here. The Packers had an unbelievable season this past year and made a very serious run at the Super Bowl with Mr. Favre carrying the load. Brett is 38 years old and says he's "tired". I believe it - especially after that unbelievable NFC Championship game in frozen Green Bay. We'll miss him, but in Minnesota we have to say, "Whew, glad he's gone."
