We all remember the scene. Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Mr. Hand: Food will be eaten on YOUR time. Why are you continuously late for this class, Mr. Spicoli? Why do you shamelessly waste my time like this?
Jeff Spicoli: [long pause, but then with complete truth in his answer] I don't know.
Mr. Hand: [Mr. Hand goes to blackboard and writes the words 'I Don't Know', then underlines them]
[reciting]
Mr. Hand: I like that. 'I Don't Know.' That's nice.
[imitating]
Mr. Hand: 'Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?' Gee, Mr. Spicoli, I don't know! You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to leave your words right up here for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.
Jeff Spicoli: All right!

I can just see it now...

Bus Cook leads Brett blindfolded into Vikings Locker Room. Brett is tied up and in a straight jacket. Bus Cook removes the blindfold and Brett looks at Coach Childress.

Favre: Hey, there's no deer hunting party here.

Childress: Deer hunting will be done on Your time. Why do you think at 40 years old that you can skip OTA's, waffle back and forth every few days on whether you will play or not. Why do you shamelessly waste my time like this?

Favre: (with long pause but complete truth in his answer) I don't know.

Childress: ( goes to his white board and erases plays he had written in which Favre throws to Bernard  Berrian) ( grabs a marker and writes "I don't know" and underlines them)

Childress: I like that. "i don't know". ( imitating in a horrible attempt at a southern drawl) That's nice.

Childress: "well gee, Mr. Favre, if i sign you will you fall apart in the last month because you think you can skip offseason work and still be a playoff quarterback for 18 straight weeks?" "I don't know" "Mr. Favre, will I , Coach Childress, lose my job and jeopardize my career if i sign you and you flop late in the season like you have since 2004?" "I don't know" "If I let you, Mr. Favre, waffle back and forth until August, will the other players here resent you from the day you get here?"  "I don't know"

Childress:You know what I'm going to do Mr. Favre...I'm going to leave your words right up here for all my players who do take part in OTA's to enjoy, giving you full credit, of course!

Favre:( with a smile) All right!

yes...now that it's the Viking fans and not long time Packer fans like me that must endure this... you can just sit back , smile, and "like sand through the hour glass...so are the days of our Favre" !
