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.

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.

Favre to have surgery on shoulder; in other words, Favre to become a Viking

Brett Favre will be having surgery on his right shoulder.  The most logical conclusion to reach from this is that Favre is intent on returning.  Circle your calendars:  Monday, October 5 and Sunday, November 1st.  It’s gonna be a circus.

You’re not tired of Brett Favre yet, are you?

This story isn’t done.  Apparently, “sources” are now saying that Favre sent X-rays to the Vikings, and if the Vikes think his shoulder injury won’t require surgery, they will sign him.

We’ll keep you updated when “sources” tell ESPN that Favre is most definitely staying retired.  And we’ll keep you updated when Favre inevitably signs with the Vikings.

Until next time,  good day.

I sure love anonymous sources.

Favre is apparently staying retired. That’s what an anonymous source told Yahoo! Sports.  It’s a good thing anonymous sources are 100% reliable.

Thankfully, the now years-long Brett Favre saga is finally over*


*It’s probably not over.

Did Favre fake his injury that convinced him to retire?

I’ll just send you over to CheeseheadTV for the story.
