Would someone please explain this current obsession with Favre?

Outside of the end of a great career, that is.

Because it's not like each of these years that he's changed his mind and "un-retired" he's come back and won the whole thing.  In fact, did he make the playoffs every time?  He's not exactly Michael Jordan.

He's not only a living legend, but he's a legend that just last season came within a touchdown of going to the Super Bowl. And of course there's the whole "I'm retiring/Changed my mind, I'm not retiring" thing, which by the way was so hyped by ESPN and other sports outlets, that it couldn't help but catch the attention of even the casual fan. BTW, Duck, not at all implying that you are just a casual fan.

Ah, Favre found a way to make it interesting again.  He may be better at manipulating the media then playing football.

Everyone in Minnesota (everywhere really) knew he was coming back and weren't buying the little hemming and hawing he's doing the last few months.  So he had turn it up a notch and "leak" that he wasn't coming back and then deny that he told anyone that. 

He's coming back.  It's been certain since the end of last season.

I learned something interesting today about player contracts...... no one reads them.

A week after Sam Bradford signed his contract with the Rams, the league said it was not valid.   Apparently while they were creating it in Word, someone copied and pasted some non-contract related text in the contract and someone in the league finally read it.   They deleted the wording and all was fine after that.   But I wonder, what was the text?   The script from "The Room"?

Okay, so this the CFL and I'm not entirely certain what down this was or why the end-zone is that size of Iowa, but his end-zone celebration is right up there! Makes me wonder how many White Widow-fueled Hacky Sack sessions this guy took part in while in college.

No problem. Compared to most people I'm closer to that description.

The fact that the Hall of Fame game is on and - because it's the Cowboys and the Bengals - I'm watching AFV.....

I must have misunderstood.   :)

BTW, tuned over to the game with the sound off while I finished watching Diabolik....

So the point of these pre-season games is to see how many players they can get injured before the season starts?  Least that's what it was looking like.

From what I've seen on the local TV, the Broncos don't have to play any pre-season games.  They're hobbling their first string in training camp.

So, Ravens vs RVR II's Panthers.

Is the Jimmy C jersey on proud display at the RVR II household?
