For anyone who follows football, even remotely close. You have realized that yet again, Mr. Brett Favre will not be making a Superbowl appearance this year, as he threw a last minute interception at the end of the game on Sunday. Now i know that one little interception does not mean that they could have won. But there were close enough, with a few extra yards, to at least attempt a field goal, which could have made them win.
But that’s not why I’m writing today…
Once again, Brett is saying the he is “highly unlikely” to return next year.
For those of you follow sports, you know that he has said things like this for the past two years. Then he actually “retired” just to come back the next year to play for the Jets and then for the Vikings.
Well Mr. Favre, “You can get me two times Favre…but not three.”
I’ve decided this year, and I encourage you to do the same, to not fall into this media trap that is already brewing about whether or not Brett Favre comes back to play. Honestly, I really don’t care. The past two years, I actually missed a little sleep due to watching Sportscenter late at night just to hear what his decision was going to be. But this year, I’m not going to let it effect me at all.
And to be even more honest….Brett, it’s time to just give it up man. You are one heck of a quarterback and an even better athlete. You are looked up to by many many kids who aspire to be like you one day. Please just take the time to leave the NFL and give it up and to spend time with your family. They need you more than we do.
