Not This Again

The NFL Network is plugging tonigh's Packers v. Vikings game as possibly Brett Favre's last game at Lambeau Field. (Now, a lot of you are probably thinking, "What and the hell is the NFL Network?" It's this little network buried on some cable company that evidentially shows NFL games. Though that's just a rumor right now.)

A couple of things, though. First, the tenuous nature of the NFL means that it could really be anybody's last game each Sunday. Especially if you are Ben Roethlisberger. And could you imagine that kind of campaign?

Tune in for the Steelers game this week, because, let's be honest, Roethlisberger has skirted death long enough and this could be the week that the Grim Reaper cashes in.

Seems kind of low, don't you think?

But the more important aspect is that Favre probably won't retire after this season. Especially since he’s this close to the all-time interception record. But seriously, he’s actually having kind of an alright season. His passer rating isn’t great, but there are at least a dozen teams he would start for, including the entire NFC North.

Favre should stick around. And if the NFL Network is really searching for an angle to play up, how about Brad Childress's mustache? That alone is enough to tune in for. That is, of course, if you could actually see the game.

If you don't get NFL Network, hang out at the FanHouse for some live-blogging of the Duke/Gonzaga game.

You know, you're going to catch hell for being nice to Favre.

All I know is that I now have to get my pool picks in by Thursday morning for a game I can't even watch.

p.s. this would have been posted a couple of minutes ago, but it took me that long to correctly decipher "xfjzabhu" as my word verification

i believe the proper saying is "what in the hell" and not "what and the hell".

Also, you can only refer to something as being "this close" verbally as you usually make a gesture with your index finger and thumb to imply a small amount. You cannot just write "this close" as we have no point of reference.

You also made a spelling mistake on "mustache" ("Mustache" is the bastardized, ignorant way of spelling it. It is "moustache". Let's have some standards here.)

I dunno where you get off calling Favre a bum like that. About to get interception record? How can you leave out, "one more season and Favre is going to shatter a lot of Marino's records this 2007 season."?
