UnBrettlieveable Farvegetaboutit

For the past 4 or 5 years during a cold Wisconsin January, there was a teary eyed gray haired man who trotted off the field, unsure of his return.  Every year it seemed like the same ole’ story.  I’m going hang up the cleats, no I’m not, yes I am.  Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth to the eventual announcement of the hero’s return for yet another year.  And every year the Packer faithful and Green Bay front office would hang on, in hopes that the right decision would be made.  And I believe that every year the right decision was made.  Last year Farve had a stellar year, so why not another year this year?  My question exactly.  But Brett wanted to go out on a high note, the sign of a mature player who knows his limits.  So he retired.  End of story.

Sike!  Now he wants to unhook his cleats, strap the helmet back on and hit the field again.  But it seems that his luck with the Packer management may have run out.  Who knows what happens next.  All we know is that what could have been a beautiful football story about a kid from the south who overcame life toughest obstacles to go on to a stellar football career, has traded that in for what seems to be a sad ending to a hall of fame career.

    Agreed. It saddens me to think that by the beginning of the season, Brett will probably be suiting up in a uniform that is not Green and Gold. Shouldn’t have to be that way, but… whatever.
