Oh, Dear (Brett Favre)
Jay Glazer is reminding the folks at Bristol, Connecticut that he’s still the man when it comes to breaking news about the NFL. A few minutes ago, Glazer — who is apparently not restricted on Twitter like ESPN employees are — posted the Tweet leading this post. If Glazer’s word comes true — How often does it not? — then Brett “Far” Favre will be back in the NFL by this time tomorrow, with the Minnesota Vikings, of course. It also means that, if true, everything will be pushed to the back burner on the sports news cycle — the Vick signing, Tiger’s loss, Rick Pitino, all of it.
My only hope is if Favre does indeed comeback, someone in the mainstream media uses the “Imperial March” as the story’s theme.
Update – 10:33
PFT is reporting Favre’s deal is worth $12 million for one season. It’s looking more and more official that Favre is a Minnesota Viking.
