Just so I can be like all the other members of the media (see how I subtly called myself part of the media?), I'd like to report that Brett Favre flew to Minnesota today to take a physical before signing a contract with the Vikings.

Look, I think if Brett Favre wants to play football, he should play. If somebody will sign him, then by all means he should play. I don't think he's anywhere near what he was in his MVP days, but how could he be that good? Athletes aren't supposed to be better closer to 40 than 30. Ahem, paging Messers Bonds and Clemens. Please report to the front desk.
I just don't want to hear about it every time Brett Favre picks up a football, or gets on a plane, or eats pretzels. Just make a decision to play or retire. Then stick with it. Or don't. But I'm beyond caring. I think I'm to the stage of actively rooting against him, solely because I stopped caring whether he would play or retire, or say he would play or retire, 4 years ago.
I also understand the nature of the 24 hour news cycle. There's only so much to say in 24 hours. But is there any other sports topic more over reported and underwhelming that Brett Favre in the plast 4 years?
