Brett at 100


Brett Favre will play until he is 100 years old.

On his 75th birthday, he'll announce his annual retirement. But his coach, the grizzled Sam Bradford, will fly to Mississippi to beg his quarterback out of retirement. Once every decade new pictures of Little Brett will appear on the Internet, and he will apologize to "anyone I have offended." And at the end of each season he will throw an interception in the playoffs, then quickly retire. Rinse and repeat.

Look, George Blanda was a hero to old guys. Julio Franco was a hero to old guys. Brett Favre is just an old guy that other old guys wish would go away.

But every time Brett Favre's career is over, he comes back to star again in another soap opera with Susan Lucci. He is not the boy who cried wolf. He is singing an entire opera called "Wolf" and we are all audience members.

It's time to go away. But he won't. And although most old guys want him to go away, there are some in the national media who act like those phone message and pictures were sent to them. And they're flattered.
