wine by the color

I received the following e-mail from a friend today...

Emotions must be running high in the Jersey Girl world with news of the Great One maybe un-retiring. Peter King has a good article on today. His information is usually pretty good on all things Farve as he is his biggest fan, next to you of course.

Believe it or not, I think Mr. King is a bigger fan of His Holiness than me. And that's saying something. And we both seem to have mixed emotions concerning the possible Return of Favre. I just don't see this whole situation ending well.

Unless it results in him suiting up in a green-and-white jersey in East Rutherford this fall. In which case, I take it back and say, PLAY! PLAY, YOUNG MAN, PLAY!!!

    I am sick of this crap in sports. Retire or do not retire. Make up your mind. (This does not apply to just his holiness)


    PS I am grumpy, did not sleep much last night.

    Are you sure you want Favre wearing a No. 4 Jets uniform? If memory serves, the last Jets QB who wore that digit was the great Glenn Foley, and we know how well that worked out.

    BB, you don't ever have to apologize. With four very young children at home, we'll give you a lot of leeway.

    And I don't disagree with your point.

    Sandman: Yes. I'm sure.

    Sandman, remember the last time a QB wore #4, the NYJ's were very close to going to the superbowl, so I will take my chances. Foley started the first three games of that season, before being pulled for Vinney (and to never be heard from again). Not many recall this. My memory was refreshed two nights ago when I was up with one of my 18 children and the NFL network was rerunning game one of the season @ SF and Hearst had the long run in OT.

    So what you're saying is you would like to see the Jets acquire Favre, start him for the first three games, and then have Pennington come off the bench and lead them to the AFC championship game, where they'll blow a two-touchdown lead in the second half?

    To dispatch with the Gang Green fantasies for a moment, Jersey Girl's original point is correct: This is not going to end well.

    The Packers do not want Favre to un-retire. It would be a nightmare.

    Scenario 1: They put Aaron Rodgers back on the bench, which would create a quarterback controversy, as well as dissention among players, coaches and in the front office.

    Scenario 2: They'd have to trade or release Favre, which would prompt an uprising of epic proportion and the eventual seize of the Frozen Tundra by a mob of pissed of Cheeseheads with pitchforks, torches and nothing to lose, all looking to turn Ted Thompson into a piñata.

    Scenario 3: Jersey Girl finally leaves it all behind and moves to Green Bay, where she splits her time stalking His Holiness and looking for a drinkable bottle of wine in a town not exactly known for its culture. Eventually, Favre relents, re-retires, leaves his wife, and he and Jersey Girl move to Hawaii together. One dark day, Aaron Rodgers, who never made it as an NFL quarterback and has fallen into a deep depression after being beaten out for the Arizona Cardinals' third-string QB job by Bubby Brister’s nephew, Jed, and running up $500K in online gambling debts, shows up seeking revenge against the man who "Couldn't just fucking go away!" He takes out Favre, Jersey Girl, and their dog, Springsteen, in a hail of bullets before turning the gun on himself.

    See, no matter what happens, this is gonna get ugly.

    You are nuts.

    Not sure how Springsteen got into this. BB would be crushed if Springsteens demise was related to Farve in any way.

    I would take scenario #1, better then 4-12.

    Nice Bubby Brister reference.

    Scenario 3 was looking really good and then all of a sudden it went oh so wrong...

    18 children. That made me snort with laughter.

    While up with one of my 18 children last night, I went downstairs so one adult could get some sleep. I put on Sports Center which loops indefinately all night. As I passed in and out of sleep from 4 AM until 8AM, everytime I awoke, I heard Chris Mortenson's voice talking about Favre. I officially do not care, unless he keeps wearing green but trades the gold/yellow for white.
