Well a day after Brett Favre tipped his hat on Joe Buck's "Live" HBO show, fans are getting excited about the prospect of No. 4 donning a purple jersey for the 2009-10 season.
Our team ran across a fantastic video on You Tube. If you have a couple of minutes to give it a run, you might see the humor in this clever, creative piece.
In any event, it's a sure bet the Favre fans and the Favre non-fans are all relieved to know that he is a healthy arm away from making his decision. Let's face it, the Wilf family and the coaching staff have made it clear in the media during the last several weeks what their desire will be.
Today, the spectator world of football had lots to say about Favre coming in and out of retirement. There's character judgements that stretch every speculation from Favre being an alien to Brittany Spears having the same crying coach. OK, we're kidding about the alien part.
Our recent poll conducted right here at The Bleacher Report showed a whopping 56 percent of you thought that Favre is "the "smoking gun the Vikings need to win it". Only 26 percent of you thought he should stay retired. Four percent didn't care and 15 percent of you thought the future Hall of Fame quarterback should never have left Green Bay.
Well, as they say in this business, "you can't argue with the numbers".
Enjoy the video and the drama.
