Brett Favre, Minneapolis, MN

I think we're all just throwing up in our mouths now...
Brett Favre might soon have a new mailing address.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press columnist Charley Walters reported Monday that the former Green Bay Packers quarterback and his wife, Deanna, placed a $30,000 deposit last week on a condominium in Edina, Minn., adding to the belief that he will play for the Minnesota Vikings this season.

Walters predicted that Favre will sign with the Vikings by July 20, when the team makes single-game tickets available for sale. He also reported that Minnesota plans to require fans who want tickets to the Oct. 5 game at the Metrodome against the Packers to also purchase a ticket to the Aug. 21 exhibition game against Kansas City.
I understand that this is likely NOT Favre flipping the bird to the fans...but simply to Ted Thompson. I'd love to know what McCarthy has to say about all this - even Holmgren.

Part of me, as loyal as I've always been to #4, is moving out of the anger and disappointment and regarding him as any other player from another team. He's doing what he thinks he has to do. Michael Jordan. Lance Armstrong. Roger Clemens (who is still playing!!).

Then again, I am looking forward to releasing our D-line to pound him like never before.
