I usually don’t blog much about sports, but I have to say as a lifelong Green Bay Packers fan yesterday’s merciless beating of Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings, 31-3 at their home stadium was pretty satisfying. File this one under” “You reap what you sow”. Favre went out of his way to give a big F you to Packers fans, GM Ted Thompson and the Green Bay front office by maneuvering his way to one of their chief rivals. A cushy early schedule in 2009 and an amazing run of good luck and good bounces combined with some admittedly great play on his part to give he and the Vikings a magical season last year, but this year his diva act and Father Time caught up with him. Leaving the Vikings guessing until the came down and begged him to play, skipping all of training camp, refusing to participate in practice, openly disdaining the head coach… once the bounces stopped going his way it all came down like a train wreck.
Did I say “end of the Favre Circus? Don’t bet on it. I wouldn’t be surprised if Favre plays again next year for another team who look like a contender that needs a quarterback… that is if any team is stupid enough to put up with his primadonna act again.
The above revision of my 2009 Star Tribune illustration is dedicated to Frett Bavre… good luck waking up screaming in the middle of the night for the next few years with visions of Clay Matthews bearing down on you.
