I've been lying awake, thinking of what to write in this post about the saga of Brett Favre. I'm losing sleep over this, Brett, thanks a lot!!
Donald Driver (Aaron and I met him in the Houston airport!) Favre, and Greg Jennings from last year - ah, the good (not so old) days
When I saw him holding up his Jets jersey on TV, I was like the kid on Home Alone: AHHHHH!!!! Does he realize what he's doing to us??
He's admitted that mistakes were made by both sides. The Packers are definitely at fault, but the truth is that Brett made mistakes, too. I wish things could be different, but it's done. Reggie White is turning over in his grave...
Aaron still remembers Favre's first game 16 years ago -- it feels like a stab in the heart to see him in another jersey. But it's just a game and life goes on. Aaron predicts there will be a ton of Favre's Jets Jerseys in Lambeau this year. I agree!
And as for Aaron Rodgers, the poor kid, we'll see what kind of season he has. If anyone had something to prove, it's this guy. Can you imagine the pressure? I have to say, though, that his attitude and lack of trash talk through this entire debacle has increased my respect for him.
As for me, for my own mental health, I think I'll start watching the Golf Channel.
