....and they wonder how it all begins

Tonight as I sat in front of the TV, I am again sitting here listening to ESPN (for the 2nd day in a row) broadcast that "...Nobody knows if or when Brett will return to play football again!" REALLY??!?! You're joking, right??

Having lived in the aura of Brett Favre and everything Brett Favre, I get sick and tired of every year this long drawn out process of ESPN devoting daily updates on Brett Favre. Its sickens me, because all it does is give him a reason to make his head bigger than it already is.

YES, he is a great quarterback
YES, he did great in Green Bay
YES, he will get into the Hall of Fame at some point
NO, I DONT need to know his every move or whether or not he might or might not show up for pre-season. If he does, GREAT! If he doesn't, ESPN just gained 3-4 minutes of air time they can devote to more important issues, like Jennie Finch, Cat Ostrenga, and the US Softball team, or Jamie McMurray winning the Brickyard, making Chip Ganassi the first owner to ever win the Daytona 500, Indy 500, and Brickyard all in the same year, or any of another 23781 sports stories out there....

Enough of the meladrama!

J-Dawg out!

I have said, on many occasions, that the real problem here is not Favre. It's the media needing to mention it, hound him, make remarks EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. Lots of players spend time hashing it over late in their careers. 99% of them aren't rammed down our throats, minute by minute. I have no problem with an athlete taking his time to decide if he's done or not. That is between the athlete & the team he answers to. If both parties are ok with it, that is their business. Tell me about it when there is a definitive answer. THAT is sports news. I am an unashamed Favre fan. I love watching him play. But I still don't need play by play of his decision-making process.
