Brett Favre's agent, Bus Cook answered my prayers yesterday and reported "Brett Favre retired in January." "He's retired, period".
If it's true... I'll be the happiest Favre fan in America. It was sad to see him leave the Packers organization on those terms... but it was frustrating to see him play with the Vikings the past two seasons.
But what's done... is done. Aaron Rodgers had proven to be the future Packers leader and has already brought another title to Title Town.
And assuming Favre stays retired, I can go back to collecting Favre cards and memorabilia without wondering if he'll throw another touchdown pass against his true team... the Green Bay Packers.
I actually just picked up this 8x10 autograph off of his official website for $44.44 (+ $6 shipping & handling).
He must be flooding the market at those prices, but I don't care if his autograph values drop... because I have no intention of ever selling it.
By the way... all autographs purchased from his site include an 4x6 photo of him signing the autographed item and a COA with a matching hologram.
Okay... now it's your turn.
I'm going to try something different tonight and allow you to show off your creativity.
Your assignment is to write a Brett Favre poem using 30 words or less. It can be a haiku, rhyming, or any other poem of your choosing. Everyone who takes the time to write a poem (30 words or less) will receive two points for effort, so there aren't any losers.
Plus, I'll have one of my TA's from summer school pick and rank his five favorite poems. His favorite will earn 5 extra points, second favorite will earn 4 extra points, third favorite will earn 3 extra points, and so on... which means you have the opportunity to earn up to 7 points for your creativity.
Since my last day of summer school is on Thursday, I'll have him read them that morning... so the deadline to submit your poems will be Thursday morning at 8am (PST).
Don't worry... I promise that it'll be judged based solely on entertainment value... and not on your actual opinion of Favre.
Comment moderation will be turned on again to prevent any plagiarism. This should be fun.
Well... it's getting late and I probably won't publish a contest update until tomorrow. Until then... have a good evening... and sayonara!
