Brett Favre Retires
I'm too busy right now to do this justice, but I'm disappointed Brett Favre is calling it quits after 17 seasons. He's going out on his terms, at the top of his game, but the fan in me wants one more year.
Brett Favre was my kind of player, the epitome of heart. The AP article I just read says "he dazzled fans with his grit, heart and rocket of an arm". Damn straight. I became a Favre fan in 1992 and when he led the Packers to a Super Bowl win in 1997, I celebrated like the home team had triumphed. With Favre gone, I couldn't tell you who my favourite player in the NFL is. This is the end of an era for me.
So you see, I wasn't ready for this ride to end. He's started 275 consecutive games, a guy can get used to that kind of dependability.
Here are a few entries I've written about Brett Favre over the past five years.
