I relocated to Minneapolis in June of 2009 and really enjoy sports (although I don't really care for the regional sports available - Twins, Vikings, T-Wolves don't offer much excitement in terms of championship contention). The only thing I enjoy as much as, or possibly more than watching sports is meeting people and talking about sports. I figured I could easily write about intriguing happenings in sports on this site, and hopefully read some other interesting takes on those happenings as well. I don't plan to write all that regularly, but I do intend to keep up with sports, as Sportscenter is a staple of my day.

    Hey Mike—Jeff here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our MLB page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point analysis...you do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at jeff@bleacherreport.com with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    That's pretty much how I'm feeling.

    I just would have rather known that Rodgers was still going to be the back up QB rather than mentally prepare myself that Favre was retired and not coming back.

    And now the Packers are faced with terrible choices; keep Favre and leave Rodgers on the bench one more year and the biggest issue is what will that do to Rodgers psychologically after thinking he was the starter for four months?

    Secondly; the Packers could release Favre, but the most likely destination for him would be Minnesota! I'm pretty sure I would vomit my heart out and boycott football for 20 years before I would watch Brett Favre in a purple and gold jersey.

    Finally they could trade Favre, but that still isn't a very good option, because the best you could get for him would be a third-round draft choice. Even then he wouldn't want to go to a team that'd be able to make it to a Super Bowl.

    So, I dunno. I'm on the edge of my sports fan life.
