Charley Walters has dipped his (probably really disgusting and fishy) foot into the Brett Favre pool again. Shooter first claims that Favre has put down a $30,000 deposit on a condo in the Minneapolis suburb of Edina, then says the team plans to announce his signing in time for the beginning of single-game ticket sales on June 20. That second bit would seem to jibe with the general impression that the Favre move is mostly being motivated by Zygi Wilf‘s desire to sell out the stadium without having to practically beg people.
I am only reporting this because, after a couple weeks of relative inactivity, I have decided it is time to get back in the full swing, or at least as near to the full swing as one can be in this rather dead period of the off-season. Unfortunately, this involves once again blogging the Favre-talk. I had ceased doing it because I was sick of it and think most of you are probably sick of it. Thankfully, I believe the farce will be coming to an end soon. Favre will be signed, and then we can start thinking about real stuff like training camp, Antoine Winfield‘s potential hold-out and Percy Harvin‘s next mysterious viral infection.
