Now that LeBron’s made his “Decision” the spotlight turns abruptly from South Beach to Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Grandpa Favre and an annual rite of summer.
Whether it’s throwing passes to high school receivers or dodging members of the media, Favre looks like he’s getting along just fine on that surgically repaired ankle.
Favre has yet to tell the Minnesota Vikings if he will return for a 20th season in the NFL, but most people with the team and around the NFL would be stunned if he did not come back. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle in May and has been throwing to receivers at the high school for a few weeks, lending an air of inevitability to yet another sequel to the summer blockbuster “Favre-a-palooza,” as Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe likes to call it.
Favre-a-palooza. It doesn’t have the same ring to it a LeBronica but it’ll do. If there’s anyone who believes that grandpa won’t be coming back, raise your hand. Ya, me neither.
Let me know when the prime time Jim Gray special, sponsored by Viagra or Ben Gay, is announced. Until then, carry on.
