I feel obligated to do a post on the story circulating that says Brett Favre will make up his mind by Friday whether to join the Vikings for the 2009 season. The source on this is some friends of Favre who supposedly know what’s in the quarterback’s head. These friends believe Favre will say yes to the Vikings. If he does give his answer by Friday, he will have a couple of days to get his stuff packed and get to Mankato for camp. Unless he has some kind of agreement with the Vikings saying he doesn’t have to show up for camp right away. But why would he have such an agreement? He’s a team player. He’s not the least bit selfish or diva-like. He is not the type of guy to make a lot of outrageous demands.
Little thing that just drifted through my brain: I wonder if Brett was watching Tom Watson this weekend at the British? I wonder if the sight of an old, over-the-hill man making a run but finally choking and being sort of humiliated gave him pause? Nah, why would it? That sort of thing could never happen to Favre.
