Thanks for the Memories


The end of an era.Brett is Retiring:

Legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre will retire, according his brother Scott. The Sun Herald learned this morning that Favre has told Packers coach Mike McCarthy that he’s hanging them up.

added…ESPN is all over this now discussing his legacy. And just wanted to add a thanks to Ron Wolf who saw something in a wild partying kid sitting on the Atlanta Falcons bench who threw just 5 passes in his year there (2 of which were interceptions that went for TD’s) and brought him to Green Bay.


In other news. I have not retired from blogging in case you had noticed my absence. My mother had a stroke and life has been turned upside down a bit of late. But I am still here.

  1. I’m not sold on this being his final decision. Perhaps he’d just like to hear from the Packers and doesn’t quite know how to get the dialog started.

  2. Oh, Scout, I’m sorry to hear about your mother. I hope she recovers well, and that the universe is kind to you in the meantime.
    And I’m also sorry about Favre. I can’t say I’m surprised–I’m a year older than he is, and while I’m not in peak physical condition (to say the least), I haven’t endured 16 seasons of NFL pounding. Given that, I know the normal wear and tear on my body is starting to make itself known. I can only imagine what the abuse he’s taken over the years has done to his body. I hope he can let go of football and have a good retirement.

  3. CybScryb…that thought occurred to me…and would be ok with me as well. Evidently his agent confirmed but well that is his agent.
    FeralLiberal…thank you

  4. Scout, I am so, so sorry to hear this about your mother. My thoughts are with you and your family and especially your mother.

  5. Scout, may the force be with you and your mom. If we can do anything let us know.
    Sorry about Favre, too. Man was most definitely fun to watch, and like Staubach, you could never be sure he wouldn’t bring ’em back from the grave and win the game in the end.
    I am glad he’s leaving before he gets broken, though. Wish Earl Campbell and Tony D had done that, among others.
