With that said. I would LOVE to hand the old guy his ass a second time. Because what better way to shut up the critics and Favreaholics than to watch Favre have to retire after the first regular season game because our D-Line embarrased him! Tavaris Jackson, dust off your cleats and put down the clipboard, just in case. (yeah right)
You are making it awfully hard for me to like you...except for that avatar. I like it a lot. That is you...right, cupcake?

First of all, I think I could legitimately qualify as a "friend of the family" since I played a full season of American Legion baseball having Brett's dad, Irvin, as my coach. Having chucked balls at the end of batting practice to his older brother and having said hello to his mom a couple dozen times while she was attending to Brett while watching the game from the stands...I think that would qualify me. It's not like we go to dinner every Sunday night, though. When you include that Kiln was only a rock throw away, it is hard for me to not be a fan of Brett Favre. You can also include that he graduated USM where my wife graduated and I also attended...just never got the degree. Dang it...that's something I got to get around to. Regarding the hoopla...I found that keeping the remote handy solves that problem handily. There is an episode of Seinfeld, King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, or SpongeBob SquarePants on just about at any given moment.

Secondly, it would give me great pleasure if you would be kind enough to remove the sig slamming Peyton. Archie Manning is my hero...and so are his sons. Hey...I'm from Mississippi. What else have we got? Oh yeah...Elvis.

Anyway, I am so happy the Saints finally not only went to the big dance, but actually won it. However, I have to admit that it didn't give me great pleasure seeing Peyton being the goat.

Whew!

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

I agree, it should have been Eli, still can't stand that punk since his trade from the Chargers.

I suggest you get over it...lol. Do you hate Elway as well?

Edit...You know...I'm pretty sure I just gave you REP's from another post...and you go and do this to me!!!

2nd Edit...Yeah...I did. Went to that last post of yours and tried to do a negative REP and said I got to spread it around. You dodged a bullet.

Aww. But I like you! I just don't like Favre. I never have, even when he played in GB. And I'm a HUGE Manning fan, always have been (the siggy is just hilarious.) I even have a pink Colts jersey. I've had it for 10 years. and it still fits. But when it comes to Peyton vs Black & Gold, I pick the Saints EVERY time!

And yes, that's me and my dad, at the Riverwalk in New Orleans last year. He's my reason for being a Saints fan.

You know...I haven't ever spoken a word to Brett...because if I'm remembering the whole thing right, he was just an infant. I do remember throwing to this little red-headed, freckle-faced kid at the end of some of our practices...like I said before, but it had to be Scott, because if that was 1972, that would have been 38 years ago, and we all know that Brett just turned 40...so you do the math.

Anyways...I went through all that for reasons unknown to me, but what I really opened this post for was to tell you about Irvin Favre...but not in great detail. All I have to say is that if you had ever been coached by that man it would be impossible for you to hate anything with the name Favre...or even anything that sounded like it.

He was a great man and I'm hoping that some day the Mississippi Gulf Coast gets around to honoring him and not just Brett because there is no doubt in my mind that if there is no Irvin, there is no Brett. (you know what I mean)

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!
