In shocking news to most, the man, the legend, the ageless wonder, Brett Favre has decided NOT to return to the Minnesota Vikings for his 20th season in the NFL.
I find this shocking since his final pass thrown was an interception and after having his best statistical season in recent memory.
At a young 40 years old, rumor has it that Favre called up the Vikings personnel and informed them that is rehab for his surgically repaired left ankle is not going as well as planned and may be hanging up the pads.
Vikings head coach, Brad Childress has not confirmed this news as of today's Vikings practice and has been quoted as saying: "I'm not a big hearsay person. I'm a 'horse-say' person. I've got to hear it from the horse's mouth."
Ohhh Brad, you crack me up...
If this news is indeed a hoax it could be bigger than the Piltdown Hoax, FeeJee Mermaid, or even the Book of Morman! (Lets not get ahead of ourselves)
I personally don't believe the rumors.
Only time will tell if Favre's 309 streak of consecutive starts has truly come to an end.
