07:25 AM ET 07.15 | Brett Favre may have decided, but his ankle will have to support any decision to return. [Favre] said during the ESPY awards show on Wednesday night in Los Angeles that he would "love to play" for the Vikings this season but still hasn't decided if he will return because his surgically repaired left ankle continues to give him problems. "I still have a little bit of time, and believe it or not, [I'm] not completely healthy," Favre said during a backstage interview at the Nokia Theatre that was aired on the ESPN3 website after the show ended. "I guess at 40 I may never be. I'm not getting any younger, but I am working hard trying to feel as best I can. Last year, I felt great. My arm was totally different than it was the year before [in 2008 with the Jets] and that made my decision a little bit easier. But we'll see."

So the 2010 season of the Fa*** soap opera will focus on his ankle. Doesn't grandpa qualify for an AARP discount on his meds? Of course, he can't decide if his ankle will allow him to play till after training camp ends.

And all this time we thought it was his mind that was uncertain.

NO he's clear in his mind, but his ankle is mad

Just wait until ESPN's next major event "The Ankle's Decision".

Well, I had never heard of restless leg syndrome before the drug companies started marketing a drug for it so we might as well have mad ankle disease to explain why grandpa can't make it to camp this year.

And just when you thought they'd looked at Brett Favre from every perspective, they come up with a new ankle on the story.

Rumor has it Jackson tried to hire Tonya Harding to break his other leg.

It's not just his ankle that's unstable.

This just in..... scientists at the Brett Favre Institute of Science have announced that contrary to previous scientific findings, the universe DOES indeed revolve around Brett!
