How one man can command so much attention from the World Wide Leader in sports is beyond my comprehension. ESPN's infatuation with Brettfavre (and it IS Brettfavre, right? That's how he's always referred to) is so beyond the pale that it sickens me. I'm pretty sure Tony Kornheiser has a Brettfavre tattoo on his ass. John Madden? Brettfavre has given him more boners than his wife has in the past 30-years.
I simply don't get it. Favre makes the Pro Bowl when several QBs have had considerably better seasons than his. Remember a couple years back when his father passed away and Brettfavre soldiered on, winning that Monday Night Football game? Great story, no? Well, Matt Cassell did essentially the exact same thing this year and nary a word was heard.
So, get ready for the tearful news conference (probably during Super Bowl week), the sad goodbyes, the talk of going back to the farm and riding his tractor, and the eventual change of heart. I'm betting he'll want to go back to Green Bay to "finish his career the right way." Please, Brett, save us the crocodile tears this time, I beg you. Stay with the Jets another year or two and go quietly into that good night. Right, like that'll happen. And that tractor ain't getting ridden anytime soon. We're doomed to seeing "The Gunslinger" on NFL Gameday as the ESPN hosts fawn over him for the next 20-years.
Heaven help us all.
