Here I am again, on the other side of a five-day hiatus in which I slacked off and didn't post a thing. I'll just say I spent that time doing charity work.
I am happy, though, to see that old Bretty is in the news for an actual public statement rather than for a reported phone call or his sister's aunt's cousin talking to a reporter. He must have run out of texts on his T-Mobile plan...
But everything seems to be normal here in the sporting blogosphere from which my charity work recently pulled me away. Everything is about No. 4, Chris Mortenson is still introduced on ESPN as "the man who originally broke the Brett Favre story," and Peter King and John Madden are both still partying knowing that their loverboy is coming back.
Only one thing was missing over this period of time: me making you laugh. I mean, hopefully that happens when I'm around. So let's get on with this thing!
Coach Brad Childress refused to comment when asked Sunday if the Vikings would be interested in acquiring Brett Favre.
Wait, Childress thinks soap operas are "interesting?" Okay, dude, turn in your mancard. As a football coach no less...how can his players respect him knowing that?
SI.com's Peter King says his money is on Brett Favre being in the Tampa Bay Bucs' training camp at some point this summer.
Oh yes, Peter, we already know that you throw money on your boy Brett. I'm just surprised Favre's wife is fine with the whole situation.
The Seahawks have told Bobby Engram that they will not negotiate a new contract with him until after the season, but he doesn't plan to hold out of training camp.
What kind of extension do you give to a guy who will be 36 at the end of next season? Bobby, I'm sorry, but it looks like they're just putting it off, waiting for you to die. Kind of like giving an I.O.U. to a great grandpa when he's in the car on the way to the emergency room.
The Cowboys remain in contract negotiations with franchise player Ken Hamlin and hope to have him signed by Tuesday's deadline.
Did anyone see Ken on Jim Rome's show today? White shirt with a white v-neck sweater vest? Dallas, give this guy his money so he can get himself a stylist.
Redskins agreed to terms with sixth-round QB Colt Brennan on a four-year, $1.8 million contract. The signing bonus is just under $100,000.
Thank goodness Washington gave Colt a check. Have you seen his hair? He needs the cash to get a decent haircut. Take notes Dallas.
Brett Favre was interviewed by FOXNews' Greta Van Susteren in Mississippi on Monday. The interview will air on Monday night.
Hey, Mr. Four, I live in San Diego. Whenever I turned on the news last October, I didn't keep saying, "I have an itch! I have an itch!"
Free agent Kevin Jones said on Sirius NFL Radio Monday that he'll wait for the "right situation" before signing with a team.
Kevin defined "right situation" as a scenario in which a team offered him a contract.
