I woke up this morning to the news that all-time great quarterback Brett Favre is supposedly retiring from the game of football. The Star Tribune in Minneapolis first reported that Favre sent texts to teammates this morning stating he plans to retire.
Early speculation is that his busted-up ankle is keeping him from being physically able to play. Something about this just doesn’t seem right. He did it with a text? That’s not very Favre is the first thing that came to my mind.
What do you think about this? Is he actually done? Is this situation as “fluid” as Vikings coach Brad Childress says it is? What of ESPN’s All-Favre, all-the-time coverage this morning? Surely something else is happening in sports, right? I’m giving you a chance to sound off. I’m turning off the moderated comments, which I don’t do very often, so go nuts but please keep it on topic.
