Favre Stokes Drama With Talk of Weight

What are we going to do next year, when there's an NFL lockout in the summer, and no training camp for us to talk about Brett Favre in?

Better yet, what will Brett do? With people worried about there possibly being no NFL at all, how is he going to get the word out about his retirement drama?

Last year, it was his shoulder. This year, the ankle just isn't enough.

Now, Brett has introduced talk of his physical condition, as we all await with our breath held news of his decision to play football again in 2010. Instead of just announcing that he'll grace the inferior fans of the Minnesota Vikings with his godly presence for yet another campaign, Brett keeps stringing everyone along.

Wednesday, the Great One gave an interview in Mississippi, and for the first time, he revealed that he's possibly not exercised as much as usual since the Vikings' season went up in smoke thanks to Sidney Rice.

He told a reporter he's "gained 14 pounds since January. I need to lose a little weight anyway."

So that's why he's practicing with the high school kids again. Just getting that old body back in shape so it's not so hard to ride the tractor, I guess.

At some point, it seems we're going to hear Brett make some more comments in the next two weeks about how he's not in very good shape. He'll lose a few pounds, report to the Vikings, then we'll hear some sandbagging about how he feels old and slow.

Then he'll have another Pro Bowl season.

Shampoo. Rinse. Repeat.
