Brett Favre reportedly is meeting with Minnesota Vikings officials this week to talk about coming out of retirement for the 2009 season. We've seen this movie before, but the question is: Are you excited for the sequel?
SI.com's Don Banks is not. In his Wednesday column, Banks writes:
It's beyond tiresome by now. Let's face it, it's sad and kind of pathetic that we're once again being sucked into another Brett Favre watch. What are we up to now, four, five summers in a row with the same basic storyline: Will he play or won't he? The indecision of the man has become as legendary as his football feats, and infinitely less entertaining.
Steve Aschburner, however, believes more Favre isn't necessarily a bad thing, writing:
To me, the Vikings need to sign Favre (unless he's entirely incapable of performing) for the entertainment value of it and, even more so, for the fascinating cultural effects it might have. ... "Favre as a Viking'' is the sort of juicy wrinkle Jerry Bruckheimer could milk for a couple of spin-offs.
Where do you stand? Are you as sick of hearing about Favre as baseball fans are of A-Rod? Or are you looking forward to the potential drama of a purple-jerseyed Favre returning to Lambeau? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
