Game Recognizes Game: So Favre, So Good

It was vintage Brett Favre last night (October 6), as the venerable vet used the Monday Night Football stage to recast himself in classic character. Call it an episode of a “relic with a cause.” Alas, motivation again reigned as the great equalizer, as the drunk-with-thoughts-of-revenge Favre outplayed upstart Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the point of making the New Jack look like Father of Time might convince you the 40-year-old gunslinger should at this point. “You guys are going to print what you want,” the Minnesota Vikings QB told a contingent of reporters in the wake of his three touchdown, 271-yards passing masterpiece. “I just did what I was expected to do today. You make the decision.” Consider it done, my man. What Brett Favre did was show that there are no substitutes for heart, resolve and, in the final and greater assessment, God-given ability. After all the fanfare had ceased to be, Favre admitted that he took the field as nervous as he’s ever been over the course of his more than two-decade-long career. But lucky for him, there wasn’t much time to think about it. Remember, time waits for no one. –Glenn Minnis
