Say It Ain't So!
Brett Favre has retired. Upon hearing the news, I considered Favre's legacy as a peerless athlete and sportsman. It made me think that Paul Simon needs to rework his lyrics to "Mrs. Robinson":
Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?
Our nation turns its lonely hearts to you.
The biggest problem is that "Brett Favre" isn't so euphonious.
Nonetheless, I wish the man a farewell. Never has there been such a combination of raw talent and sheer toughness in a quarterback.
I will miss him, and not just because he led one of my fantasy football teams to a superbowl victory this season.
Take care, Brett.
