Here’s hoping your secret underground bunkers are well stocked, Packers fans. Why? Because Brett Favre publicly stated this week that he not only thinks the Green Bay Packers will win the Super Bowl, but he is actually rooting for them to do so. What’s next? Rivers boiling? The dead walking the earth?
Dogs and cats living together?
“There is no bitterness,” Favre wrote to ESPN’s Ed Werder in an e-mail. “I’m happy for [the Packers] and very happy and content with my legacy.”
He also added, “I think they will win it all! I hope they do, if you are wondering.”
Seriously, what in the name of Wrangler jeans is going on here? Well, truth be told, with the news that Favre has officially filed retirement papers with the NFL (again), it could be that he’s simply looking to begin the process of mending fences with the Green and Gold.
He’s five years from Canton, and he’s got plenty of work to do if he indeed wants to be inducted as a Packer, and with the Packers faithful squarely in his corner like they once were, back before an errant pass that cost the team a Super Bowl appearance, fake retirements and all his behind-the-scenes shenanigans.
Of course, that assumes this news doesn’t trigger the appearances of a certain four horsemen.
