Dispatches from Shooterville


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.

    The jaded Danzinski Franophile strikes again:  “The Favre move is mostly being motivated by Zygi Wilf’s desire to sell out the stadium.”  The move is mostly to get a good QB and win a super bowl.

    Good luck in Minnesota Favre!

  • Mike

    WOW!  Favre and I could be neighbors.  Charley Waters reports a little birdie heard that quarterback Brett Favre and wife Deanna last weekend made a $30,000 deposit on a condominium near 50th and France in Edina.   We have a condo a block away!

    Danzinski, I think you mean July 20th not June 20th.

    And by full swing you mean more than 1 post every 4 days?

  • Jim

    Mike, isn’t 50th and France a business district?

  • Mike

    Yes, but we have condos a block off France where the houses and condos start.

    Today, I was reminded about what kind of football player I want on the Vikings. A friend of mine said he knows a very high paid Vikings player who says football is just a business. Then I saw a video on NFL.com about Adrian Peterson and his passion to excel at the game. I was also reminded about how Adrian said he likes Favre’s passion for the game. Welcome aboard, Brett.
