07:01 AM ET 06.07 | Brett Favre and the Packers continue to inch toward a reunion, seemingly one media appearance at a time. Both team president Mark Murphy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have shared their thoughts on a reunion this off-season. On Thursday, Favre weighed in. ... Favre joined [Joe Buscaglia at WGR 550 in Buffalo] in lieu of Jim Kelly's "Hunter's Hope" charity auction. ... (On if he has any regrets with how it went down, going to New York and Minnesota) "It's the way it is. ... It is what it is. It's over and done with. I was at fault. I feel that both sides had a part in it. If you could go back would I or them have done things differently? I'm sure both sides would. But you can't. I don't know for certain, but I think the situation with Peyton (Manning) and the Colts almost looked like our situation."

Did you ever decide on that TV at Sears, Brett?

In fairness, the Packers should retire his number. Then change their mind. I would do this about once a year for five years.

Here's how it went down...

He was at Sears taking a pictures of TVs with his phone when he accidentally dropped it into his Wranglers. While fishing for his phone, he accidentally snapped a picture of his junk and sent it to Jenn.

...at least that's how the story was explained to Deanna.

To show him I am not being mean spirited about it all, I would substitute the occasion with a Favre bobble Head Day. One arm holding a yes sign and the other a no sign.

And Humphrey Bogart never said "Play it again, Sam," in Casablanca, either.

Actually, there should be a choice of bobble heads. One year, they could give out bobble heads that shake left and right. The next year, they could give out bobble heads that shake up and down. After four years, the fifth year would feature a bobble head whose head shakes so violently it becomes a lethal projectile as it flies off the body.

Hmmm? Did not know that. The question then is what did he know, and when did he know it?

No, but he did say, "Sam, could you please get that piano leg off my foot?"

My thoughts exactly. Didn't the Colt's pay Manning the year he missed the entire season when he was recovering from neck surgery? And it was not a secret that the Colts were going to draft Andrew Luck. So no Brett Favre.....your situation in Green Bay was not the same way as the Colts and Peyton Manning. I beleive that Peyton will do the 1 day contract and retire as a Colt.
