Despite what our friends Varley and Chickie swear, the moon doesn’t shine out Brett Favre’s Ass. He is still the whiney crybaby he was when he retired. He boo-hooed his way through his first retirement press conference, took his football and went home.
When the press didn’t follow Brett Favre’s every move off the field during his retirement, he announced his comeback. But he sure didn’t want anything to do with the cheeseheads that worshiped the gouda he walked on.

The next thing I know, Prince just lunges at me like I’m the last vegetable pakora at an all-you-can-eat Indian buffet.”

Aaron Rodgers was welcomed with all the warmth and patience that one might expect from the down-to-earth, dairy-loving folks of Wisconsin on Monday; he was booed back to the Stone Age.
Don’t you just love “professional” sports? If only they could be played without people.
