Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…for the third time in his career, Brett Favre has retired or shall I say, allegedly retired. Favre, from here on referred to as Gramps has decided to hang up his cleats again as the vicious beating he took in last year’s NFC Championship game proved to be too much for him to return. Click here for two of my favorite pictures of Gramps.
As a God-fearing Bears fan, I can honestly say I HATE Gramps…always have and always will. As a football fan, I think you’d be hard pressed to find a tougher S.O.B. To start 285 consecutive games is a record I don’t think will ever be broken. That said, I think this roller coaster ride he took the Viqueens on, while amusing (and equally annoying) to me, was a complete screw job. The Viqueens could have gone in many different directions at QB, but he kept their collective nuts in a vice, because he is also one of the most selfish S.O.B.’s to ever play this great game and I don’t think his ability is worth it at his advanced age. Sure, he had a great season last year, but when you get behind the wheel of a brand new Cadillac, you’d expect it to drive right, which is similar to the situation Gramps fell into with the Viqueens last year. Don’t get me wrong, I think the Viqueens with Tavaris Jackson are not nearly as formidable as a Viqueens team with Gramps, so as a Bears fan, this is a GREAT DAY!!! However, this is the third time Gramps has retired, so I guess we will have to wait and see. Hopefully, the third time is the charm!!!
CAN I GET AN AMEN!?!?!?!?
