Favre retires! Oops...guess, not quite yet

This is good. Apparently there was an inadvertent posting today of a Brett Favre retirement announcement on the Packer's official website. It came and went before too many people saw it. It was somewhat like an Internet equivalent of a newspaper prematurely publishing an obituary of a famous person for whom they already have the obit "in the can." Oops.

But rather than explain it here, why not just read this blog entry from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel about the gory details, including comments from Brett's agent about it, and some explanatory comments from the Packers' PR director about the faux pas. You can even see an image of what the announcement looked you won't be entirely shocked when that sad day actually does come.
