Yesterday’s Monday night football game was the exact reason that I invested in an HD TV oh so long ago. Below zero windchill, flurries, and a frozen field. Even if someone handed me tickets I’ll stay in my warm house and watch the game on TV thanks.
Once again we were forced to deal with Brett Favre. Ugh. The streak ended last week, he was out, we had all hoped that it was the end of an era. The end of Brett Favre. The team is eliminated from the playoff hunt, just stay on the bench and allow the team to get ready for next season. Scout the players they have and see who they’re bringing back because they’re certainly not bringing back Favre.
So around 12:30 I hear on the radio that Favre was upgraded to questionable. Christ. Here we go again. Another will he or won’t he but instead of an entire off-season we’re forced to listen to it for an entire day. Of course with ESPN getting wind of it, it was Favre-o-polooza.
Then there’s the Gruden factor. “This guy threw 5,000 passes a day.” Yeah, that’s what Gruden said earlier this season about Favre and it had my buddy Rich from Toucher and Rich to post this:
Please football gods, let Favre play tonight…cause if he does, even at 10 below, Gruden may do the entire broadcast with no pants on.
The bottom line is that he played and went down in the second quarter (pictured above). We can only hope that this is it. It has to be right? Why on Earth would the team play him in the next two weeks? Payback? We invested $20 million this season on you and we’re 5-9, get out there and earn your money?
Just retire. There’s only two weeks left in the season and the Vikings have nothing to play for; just leave.
By the way the Vikings lost again 40-14.
