Apology to Favre

I gave Brett Favre a lot of shit for coming back again this year. I just didn't want a GenXster icon to cheapen himself by acting like a babyboomer by not retiring. I was way wrong. Brett had a kick ass season and proved he can still play at a high level. If he comes back next year I'll keep my big-azz mouth shut.
If you are like me, you are sad this morning at the prospect of having possibly witnessed Brett Favre's final game as a football player. Sure, we've seen this before, the waves goodbye, the emotional locker room hugs, but this time the scene of the the tired, pain-wracked body of the 40 year old NFL legend leaving the field at the Superdome after the Vikings loss in overtime to the New Orleans Saints seemed finally..well, final.

I was right there saying it, too. He needs to stop. Obviously he didn't want to and he had a good season.

Hasn't changed my mind, tho.

And bec. he didn't get to the Super Bowl, he'll just come back again next year. And the year after that, and the year after that, and the year after that . . . .

Yeah, I get sick of the soap opera he creates more than anything.
