Goodbye, Brett Favre

So it turns out the item that slipped onto the Green Bay Packers web site in error recently turns out to be true. Brett Favre is retiring. And why not? He certainly has nothing more to prove. The only thing missing from making this a storybook ending is another Super Bowl title (I still can't believe they lost to the Giants!). Still, you had to impressed the way he took a young team not really expected to make much of a ripple let alone a splash, and led them to the NFC title game. Packers fans - and football fans - are likely feeling about this news much the same they did when Joe Montana or Troy Aikman retired - that Sundays just won't be the same without him. Oh, I know the game will move forward. Another player will come along that will captivate us with his style and mastery - Tony Romo is on his way (and true Packers fans know how difficult it is to say that about a Cowboy!). But I've written here before that what Favre brought to the field was a pure joy I've seen few players match - those sly grins you'd catch, that desire to stay in the game. As he leaves the game, let me know your thoughts. Do you have any favorite Favre moments? Who remaining the game do you think best personifies the type of player he's been? Do you think he made the right call, or should have tried just one more season!? Farewell, Brett Favre! I'm sure you'll remain around the game, if not in it. By the way, here's a link the station I used to work at in Green Bay, in case you're interested in their coverage of this story: http://www.wfrv.com/.
