So Brett Favre wasn’t happy ruining your summer with idle chatter and pointless meetings with the Vikings. No, he had to go and have surgery! Favre is the embodiment on Hodgekin’s Lymphoma: you’re just never totally rid of him. From The Trib’s Huddle Up:
The latest in the Brett Favre saga involves a deadline placed on the veteran quarterback by Brad Childress. The Vikings head coach wants Favre, who underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder, to decide on a comeback with Minnesota by this week, according to an ESPN report.
Favre, 39, wants to make sure his arm is in the right condition before deciding to come out of retirement. Vikings players are no doubt sick of the circus revolving around Favre, with the 2009 season right around the corner. The Vikings begin training camp July 25.
I guess we’ll do this again in a week. Uhh, place your bets? Coming back? Not coming back? Meteor? Gimme 50 bucks on meteor. And 10 more on whoever’s playing the Nationals.
