Minnesota Vikings training camp starts on Friday and the Brett Favre saga is continuing all the way to Mankato. The local media (and national) is still focused on the possibility of Brett Favre a Viking…even at training camp. The media is asking other Vikings players what they would think if their old arch enemy showed up in a purple number 4 jersey. Most players are trying to steer clear of the issue, but Antoine Winfield said he would be pleased if Favre was on the Vikings team. I found this poll on the Tribs web site:
Which quarterback would best help the Vikings get to the Super Bowl this year?
Tarvaris Jackson 25.7%
Brett Favre 64.5%
A quarterback to be named later 9.7%
Total Votes: 5813
Apparently, Minnesotans would welcome Brett Favre across the river with open arms. That would not be the case for Vikings Vixen. I think I may give Brett the cold shoulder. He would need to earn my support. At Green Bay, he was kind of a baby and I don’t like babies and I just can’t get the image of him prancing around like a fairy the last time he was at the Dome (when he broke the TD record).
Fact: I wish Brett Favre would retire and go away so we can focus on the current Vikings team at training camp and put the what-ifs behind us.
