Amazing.  After all these years Brett Favre seemed as inevitable as Spring following Winter.  But as with all things, time’s an implacable, and patient foe (far worse than any defense).

Still, it’s not like he’s dead.  He’s retiring.  In this I disagree with ESPN’s Mike Tirico who declared it a ‘sad day’.  His career should be celebrated.  Never more than now.

As a Viking fan I don’t miss him, but I never hated or disliked him, which probably makes me a minority amongst Viking fans ;~)

lol…
Still, great player. The game’ll miss him, but richer for having had a talent like that in Green Bay.

Come to think of it, I can remember having some hate for Favre. He cost me a layoff spot in my fantasy league this year with his OT pass to Jennings on MNF against the Broncos.

But then again, he was my 1A QB 3 seasons ago when I won it all. Felt extra good thinking I had “used” him ;~)

Favre was very much a gamer, and a no-excuses kind of a guy. As a Minnesota Vikings fan, I am overjoyed to see him retire-but make no mistake, most of us Vikings fans respected Favre as a player and competitor.
