Is Favre my W?
I'm still Facebook friends with one of my friend's sometimes ex-girlfriend (I'd kind of like to un-friend her, but uh, she knows where I live and I'm a little afraid of her). Anyway, her status says:
To all of you bitter, sad, lonely "friends" who can't fill their days with anything more than tearing down a seasoned football quarterback, I say, "You are sad and lonely, and actually, most of your ridiculous facebook posts are just as ridiculous as you are, Vikings related or not." Thanks, and sleep well.
Can I just tell you how much I hate that attitude? "You care about something I don't - therefore your life isn't as awesome as mine".
But, I do have to ask myself this: are the Vikings my 2008 election? Is Brett Favre my George W. Bush? Am I suffering from Favre Derangement Syndrome?
I don't think so. In fact, I think the events of last night have purged my soul of a whole lot of hate. In fact, now if I saw Brett Favre crossing the street in front of the Metrodome as I'm driving by, I wouldn't accelerate. I might even wave at him. With five whole fingers!
Anyway, for a season that didn't end in a Packer Super Bowl victory it was a whole lotta fun. I look forward to our annual State of the Packers address. And I will sleep well. Thanks!

|I think a lot of people enjoyed watching Favre blow Sunday night's game. I know I did. I don't have any connections to the Midwest other than this blog, but I love sports, and football in particular. I will say that I laughed and laughed when he threw the interception and then when the Saints won in overtime. |
