It's Official: Brett is Back

As I told you yesterday, Brett Favre is returning to the Minnesota Vikings for his 20th, and likely final, NFL season.

You may think you are tired, annoyed, and sick of his act, his aw shucks attitude, his aloof ways, and his diva mentality but enjoy this season. For as annoyed as you may be, Brett Favre is one of the best, if not arguably the best, quarterback in the history of the NFL.

When he hangs the spikes up for good, he will be the last vestige of the last great quarterback era of the NFL. He is tied to Marino, Montana, Kelly, Aikman, Elway, and Young. His peers are in the Hall of Fame. In six years, so will he. Enjoy the ride, folks.

Watch and, even if he plays poorly, remember the pure enjoyment and passion that he has always had for the game. He being a big kid can be annoying but its also endearing. A part of us wishes we could play a game like he can and he knows it's just a game and loves every second. Enjoy the big, 40 year old kid. He is a blast to watch, in spite of how annoying he can be. Just like a kid.
