How not to have a polite conversation with Vikings fans

1.)  Print out or load on a mobile phone these pictures of Brett Favre’s (alleged) dick.

2.)  Show them to a Vikings fan, especially if you’re lucky enough to be at Lambeau Field on October 24.

3.)  Don’t be classy.  Bonus points for provoking a fight.

For those who didn’t already know who to root for this week.

Root for:

Packers over Seahawks.

Panthers over Giants.

*If the first 2 happen, then the Packers clinch a wild card spot in the playoffs.

Redskins over Cowboys.

Enjoy the remainder of the season’s games and Favre’s annual cold-weather collapse.

Brett Favre won’t be unretiring until next season.

And somewhere, Peter King is weeping.

Brett Favre to make up his mind by Friday unless, of course, he doesn’t.

By Friday, we will know.  Maybe.

Are bloggers’ anonymous sources better than traditional writers’ anonymous sources?

packergeeks says that Favre will be a Viking by the end of the week.

Fran Tarkenton is not Brett Favre’s biggest fan.

Fran Tarkenton:

“I think it’s despicable. What he put the Packers through last year was not good.  Here’s an organization that was loyal to him for 17, 18 years, provided stability of organization, provided players. It just wasn’t about Brett Favre. But, you know, in this day and time, we have glorified the Brett Favre’s of the world so much, they think it’s about them. He goes to New York and bombs. He’s 39 years old. How would you like Ray Nitschke playing in his last year for the Vikings, or how ’bout I retire, and go play for the Packers? I kind of hope it happens, so he can fail.”

But wait, there’s more!

“It’s about team.  It’s not about Brett Favre.  So he goes and runs up to the Jets, doesn’t even dress in the locker room with the players, has a separate facility…it’s all about him, and it’s supposed to be all about your team.”

Tarkenton then proceeds to list a lot of big games that Favre blew that I’d rather not remember.  This is only a small sampling of the rant.  To listen to the audio of the whole Favre segment, click here.

Remember that story that said Favre was having surgery? Yeah, about that…

In the latest edition of “Did Brett Favre sneeze today?,” there is a new conflicting report out saying that Favre wants to heal his arm without surgery.

From ESPN’s Ed Werder:  “Favre, however, remains focused on nonsurgical options, including cortisone injections and natural movements like light throwing and bicep curls that might cause the tendon to release naturally, the source told ESPN.  If the tendon releases and the pain subsides, Favre is virtually certain to play again.  If he has surgery and his arm strength diminishes or the pain remains, he will remain retired.”

So basically, Favre’s return is still inevitable.  Now there’s just two different anonymous sources telling us two different stories about HOW he will return.
