Breaking News: Favre to retire

According to a report by Jay Glazer on FoxSports.com, Brett Favre is set to retire. The news is being reported also by local Milwaukee media. As of this time, there is no announcement or confirmation from the Packers.

However Lance Allen, sports reporter for WTMJ TV in Milwaukee, while doing an on-air telephone interview with his news team, said he was text messaging Brett's brother, Scott, during the on-air time and was asking if the rumor was true. At approx. 8:35 a.m., Lance reported that Scott just wrote a text message back that "It's true."

More details to follow as they become available.

It's the day we all dreaded. The end of an era. We will not see anyone like this again.
