After another summer of media-magnified indecision, Brett Favre is back for a 20th season. Cleared by doctors and lured by opportunity, starting next month he'll lead the Vikings in another run at the NFC championship. 

Favre's presence makes the Purple a clear NFC favorite. Speculation about his return has also driven up prices for Vikings home games almost 20% over the last two weeks. With the official announcement yesterday, prices were up xx% in 24 hours. While a meaningful increase, it's a blip compared to last year, when prices jumped almost 100% on Favre's un-retirement. 

After coming within a botched snap of the super bowl, the market was a little wiser this time around and knew he wouldn't be able to stay away. Whether the 41-year-old play-caller can continue to keep opposing defenses guessing is another matter altogether.
