Brett Favre has put the Vikings on the map, as evidenced by this Conan O’Brien bit. Isn’t this what so many of the Favre supporters have truly been hoping for? Relevance in the national media? A little salve for their Midwestern inferiority complex?
It’s never been about football for them; it’s always been about getting some attention. Well now you got it. And if/when Favre falls on his face and the Vikings become laughing stocks? You’ll get even more of it, and not the kind you want.
