America Held Hostage by Brett Favre’s “un-retirement” is finally over–thank God! ESPN will have to figure out something else to cover after all these weeks. The Packers did us all a favor by unloading the Green Bay living legend with the rocket arm to the NY Jets for a conditional 4th round draft pick–the better the Jets do and the closer they get to the Super Bowl, the higher the draft pick will be. And the Packers made absolutely sure the Jets could not just turn around and trade him to his team of choice (and mine of course)–the Minnesota Vikings. Apparently there’s a clause in the trade contract that says the Jets will owe Green Bay three (!) first round draft picks if they trade him to the Vikes. So that ain’t happenin’, but at least I won’t have to deal with the conflicted emotions of having my football team’s most hated rival and arch-nemesis suddenly taking over to try and lead them to a championship. Granted they’d have a better shot at a Super Bowl with Brett than Tarvaris Jackson, but did we really want to go there?
So let’s hear it–I.N.T.S, JETS, JETS, JETS! Unless of course he suddenly changes his mind and retires again.
