Workout Warriors

Look, at this point I could care less if Brett Favre plays in Minnesota or not this fall.  The story lost its legs for me about two minutes after his release from the Jets, which foreshadowed the obvious romance between diva Brett and the desperate Vikings.

But this business about Favre working out with Oak Grove High School?  Now that’s a fascinating story.

Favre hanging out with high schoolers just fits somehow for the superstar whose personality has always seemed more suited to that of a big kid. 

Remember Brett Favre at age 29?  Let me refresh your memories with this quote from Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback in October of 1999:

“West of Howard Stern, he still gets the greatest charge of any American man out of flatulence — his own, mostly — by pausing before ripping one, just so everyone around can hear it.”

Something tells me Favre at age 39 (with that 40th birthday staring him down in less than three months) is still the same as ever. 

And maybe, just maybe, if we could see him like his “teammates” with the Warriors of Oak Grove see him, then we would be able to muster up the interest once again in a will-he-or won’t-he story that has turned Favre into “a national punch line”.
