What the Favre? Part 23

Ol' #4 made official today what was reported here and elsewhere yesterday: he's back for another year with the ViQueens. (Yawn.)

The only point of interest in his meeting with reporters -- we can't really call it a "news" conference, can we? -- was that he said, "I owe it to this organization to give it one more shot." Wha-a-a-a-a-a-a??? You "owe it" to the 'Queens? Brett, Grampa, what the heck are you talking about? You played there one year! Hell-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Too bad you apparently never thought that you "owed" it to the Packers' organization -- you know, that one you played for for about 16 years?! -- to say whether or not you were going to play from about the year 2004 onward.

Very interesting perspective you have on what you "owe" and who you "owe" it to. If you had had the same type of integrity a couple years ago that you have apparently found now it's quite likely you'd still be in the green-n-gold and retire proudly instead of being dressed out in that funky purple and retire as a punchline for comics everywhere.

I just thought I owed it to you readers to put things in perspective since Ol' #4, with all due respect, certainly seems to be a bit short in that department recently.

Oh, by the way, Favre says this, his 20th year in the NFL, will definitely be his last. Sure. Whatever.
