Bret Favre to stay retired

The ongoing ‘will he’ or ‘won’t he’ play again saga is finally over. None too soon IMHO. I had long since grown sick of seeing waste space on their front page over the last Bret Favre rumor. Favre was a great player but like many before him, didn’t know when to call it quits. His last year with the Jets wasn’t a disaster, but was no more than mediocre. Considering his age, health questions, and recent performance, I couldn’t understand why the Vikings were the slightest bit interested in Favre. Maybe it was just a lot of hot air.

Now maybe football writers can focus on something that has meaning for the upcoming NFL season. That is after they get their last Bret Favre columns out of their systems. Can you believe it is only a little over 12 days till the 2009 season kicks off?
