Yup…this is it.
Brett Favre. Minnesota Vikings. I cannot believe this. It’s surreal even seeing those words on the same line of text. Like, is this real?
I’ll have more–much, much more–to say later tonight; in the meantime, and if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to self-mutilate for a while.
LATE-ISH NIGHT UPDATE: in fact I’m not going to write about Favre tonight, because Deadspin’s already said everything I wanted to say about this unholy alliance. Seriously, I could’ve written this; the fact that I didn’t, and that at least one other Viking fan is feeling exactly the same as me, is oddly comforting on this dark, dark day.
