Buh Bye Bye Brett

I can’t tell you how pissed I am that even I, who loathes all the pub that Brett Favre has been getting since he left Green Bay, am starting this screed by talking about him.

The Devil makes me do it . . . while the Saints go marchin’ in.

Yes, Brett Favre is a gamer among gamers. Yes, the zebras inexplicably let Saints’ defenders beat up on him all day. Yes, it’s going to be awhile before we see someone as tough as him under center.

But what a prima donna he’s been for the last couple seasons.

Oh my, it’s just so sweet that he lost. And he lost because he made a play they teach QBs not to attempt in Pop Warner football. He threw it over the middle across his body¬† . . . and into the arms of an opponent. While just out of field goal range at the end of regulation giving New Orleans new life and the eventual W.

Surely this pick has to be his last pass as a Viking. Right? Just as his last pass as a Packer was a pick in the NFC title game.

The problem is you never know. He’ll toy with the attention until the last minute next fall. Then either hang up the cleats, or trot on the Metrodome turf in Week 3 to the cheers of Prince. After months of primping in the spotlight and loads of purple and gold genuflection.

Okay, enough about Brett.

The Saints hung tough in an exciting if not particularly well played game. It’s a great story for America’s greatest city.

Now we get two weeks of Favre-free hype for what should be a tactically interesting matchup between the Saints and Peyton Manning and the Indy Colts. Each squad has a Haitian on the squad. Which is a poignant touch.

Okay a little more about you know who. Anyway, let’s hope it really is Buh Bye Bye Brett. Who knows if he has another devastating, championship-losing interception in him?

One last ???? for you, Brett? How can we miss you if you won’t go away?

    At least he didn’t bounce a Hail Mary off a helmet.
