Favre Farewell

This is really for MB who LOVES Brett Favre. In fact, I may or may not be jealous of the man. After retiring from the Greenbay Packers, Mr. Favre decided to return to the game. I believe that he is breaking many Wisconsin hearts in signing with (cough) the New York Jets.

I love this quote from a Greenbay superfan:
"Everybody just kind of got all quiet," Aguilar said Thursday morning as he helped refurbish a house adjacent to Lambeau Field. "Nobody really knew what to say. I guess that's when it really hit us — you know, that he really is gone and he's not coming back."
How rude Brett.

Todd, don't look for shortcuts through this emotionally turbulent time. Your pain is authentic and your grief is real. Feel it, live with it and remember that with time, you will find peace. Give yourself a few weeks to lick your wounds and then - well, then you'll just have to move on. I had a similar experience when I heard rumors that the Dixie Chicks were breaking. The stories were never confirmed but then again, they aren't working on anything so I guess I have to accept the truth. Big sigh. It was a good ride while it lasted.

Jets are Rude. We all agree.

However, I do await breathlessly your proclamation on the relative rudeness of cameras stationed at the shower area for the Olympic divers.

Is it necessary to watch people showering while clothed on NBC? I try to look away, but... they are seemingly ALWAYS SHOWERING.
