If you're hooked on attention, and you know you can get attention by floating your name into the media like a trial balloon, wouldn't you do it constantly?
That's really all that Brett Favre is doing right now. He's testing us. He wants to know how many times the media will fawn over him like he's Miley Cyrus, just because there's a report he might have done something.
The latest? Favre evidently had shoulder surgery last month in Alabama. After all, he needed to do that in order to come back, and while he hasn't made a decision about coming back, he figured he'd keep his options open.
Now, there's a real gem on ESPN.com.
Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has imposed a deadline of this week for Brett Favre to decide whether he will be the team's quarterback for the upcoming season, according to two sources.Yeah, right.
This is almost as believeable as a Brett Favre retirement.
You're telling me the Minnesota Vikings would turn down a chance to sign Brett Favre because he wanted to wait until July 1, or even August 1?
I'll believe it only when the Walking Narcissist isn't the Vikin'gs' Week 1 starter. Until then, there's no reason to dismiss anything, regardless of what anyone says publicly or behind the veil of "sources".
