Apparently, I'm not the only one that thinks Favre isn't quite as good as he's made out to be. Which is good to know, since listening to most media people talk about Favre is like listening to them talk about Derek Jeter, only Derek Jeter has at least won more than one championship. And, since I haven't angered enough Packers fans yet, I'd just like to point out that, by using the same logic that they use to argue that the Packers are better than the Vikings (which is that they have more championships), one can quite easily argue that, despite Favre's records, John Elway, Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Tom Brady, Terry Bradshaw and a few others are better than Favre.
And while that logic would likely make Euclid cry more than Brett Favre after the final game of last season, what else would one expect from a fan group that called me "douchbag", "LOSER QUEEN ROUND HEAD HEIDI HAIR" (probably my favorite), "coward", "moron" and a "purple punk". Not exactly the level of discourse one would like. Probably what I deserve for baiting Packer fans before the Vikings-Packers game. It's just too hard to resist though.
Something that should not be hard to resist, however, is any urge to stop the game at the Metrodome to celebrate if Favre sets the touchdown record. The interception record can be celebrated, but not the touchdown record. I don't care what Roger Goodell threatens to do to the Purple if they don't let Favre celebrate--Favre, the Packers, Green Bay and the NFL can all shut up and die.
For whatever reason, I don't think it's going to be a problem on Sunday. Maybe it's because Favre's been playing well so far, but I just see him imploding against the Vikings. I really think it's only a matter of time until he starts trying to "make plays" and throws four picks. And what with all the hype about him, his "joy for the game" and all that other crap, it just seems like he's going to revert to Bad Favre and set the wrong record on Sunday (wrong only being the correct word if you are a member of national media, the Packers or a Packers fan). And, since I'm both an optimist and slightly delusional, I think the Vikings pull it out on Sunday, 17-9 and Favre throws three picks. I might be wrong, but I have to say, I'd appreciate it if the universe stopped dumping on us Vikings fans and helped us out a little instead.
