As the second annual Brett Favre recontemplating retirement talks heat up, or what we at Alldayfootball like to call Favre Watch, more and more reports come out of Minnesota about how Favre will impact the Vikings, how Super Bowl ready they will be if Favre rode in on his tractor hung up his Wrangler Jeans and suited up for one more season.
The most recent installment has Minnesota's governor salivating at the thought of Brett Favre playing football for the Vikings. Gov. Tim Pawlenty says putting the former Green Bay Packer in purple would be fun for fans. He says it would be "a wonderful little salt to rub in the eyes of some of our Green Bay Packer friends."
Pawlenty laid out the scene: "Can you imagine Brett Favre going into Lambeau Field in Viking purple and maybe even wearing No. 4? There would be audible gasps. The would be 60,000 audible gasps."
The possibility of another unretirement seems to be getting closer as Favre is scheduled to meet with Vikings coach Brad Childress about a possible comeback with Minnesota. Childress will be flying down to Mississippi to enjoy some crawfish and Prilosec OTC and try to convince Favre that his arm isn't finished and it was simply the winds in Giants stadium that ruined the end of last season for Favre and the Jets.
