Brad Childress has taken a week off to go fishing in Alaska with his good buddy Andy Reid, and given all the hysteria around the team lately, I can’t say I blame him. As a matter of fact, I have a good mind to join Chilly…not by going to Alaska to fish with him and Andy Reid – that would be stalking plus I hate fishing – but by taking a week off from blogging. A week without having to post anything about Brett Favre! That would be bliss. Sadly, I’m sure something would happen in the course of that week, some report of Favre’s arm not being right, or a rumor about a second team jumping in to maybe offer him a deal, and I would get sucked back in just like a bad Al Pacino impersonator.
Then again, maybe nothing will happen. Maybe Brett will take a week off from being Brett, and Ed Werder will take a week off from making up stories, and the whole sports media will take a week off from speculating. In that case, I should have no problem taking a week off. Well, screw it then…see you guys next Tuesday (unless something happens).
