I was talking with an acquaintance on Tues. about Prima-donnas and people who live for drama, when naturally Brett Favre’s name came up. We were musing about what new trick or turn would come up on or before Friday’s expected decision would be announced. At the time, we didn’t realize how prophetic this conversation might be.
“ What do you think he will do to stir the pot this time ?”
“ I don’t think we’ll know anything by Friday, except that he’s having second thoughts.”
He did this with the Packers a few years ago. He just loves to hear teams beg ! “Oh Please Brett ! Please come back and save the day ! “
So when Thursdays report that Brett Favre was “Anguishing “ over weather to play for the Minnesota Vikings came out, it was a tremendous source of amusement for me.
I am not looking for any credit for calling this one, because really, how predictable ! Now Childress has his butt hanging out there, and now all those excited Viking fans who were getting ready to sacrifice the family budget to buy tickets, jersey’s and T.V. packages are now ready to throw their sets out the window…….. And for what ? Just for the pleasure it brings to a certain ego-maniac from some Mississippi bayou.
He was willing to undergo surgery, the “secret work-outs” and all the media hype to bring us to this climactic frenzy so well orchestrated by the Master illusionist and showman. ……..Now you sign him, now you don’t !
Don’t be fooled ! He didn’t really saw the lady in half ! It’s all smoke and mirrors.
From my unique vantage point, the view is clearer. Like the petulant child who finds himself longing for attention, any attention ! Brett doesn’t disappoint ! Viking fans longing for a shot at the brass ring…….Let not your heart be troubled !!
If the past teaches us anything…….then realize that this is not “The hail Mary ! “ or the Gary Anderson miss in 98. It is merely Favre being Favre.
The man is not capable of entering the stage without the maximum possible fanfare and ado. This is a man looking to save the franchise, the world for that matter !!!
So sit back and enjoy what comes next……
I don’t buy any of it. I Still Boldly say…….. FAVRE RETURNS TO THE NFL AS A MINNESOTA VIKING JUST BEFORE CAMP OPENS THIS WEEK !!!!!!
No question about it in my mind ! Zero chance he stays retired ! Can I possibly be any clearer ?????
So relax and trust the Big Dog ! Done deal ! It’s over ! Written in stone !
I am so sure of it that again I state with emphasis and complete confidence, knowing that now, like Childress, Jackson, Rosenfels, Ziggy Wilf, and so many others, that it is MY BUTT hanging out right along with them…….
Brett Favre WILL play for the Vikings this season !!!!…………………………………………………..unless he doesn’t !
