There has been more waffling done at the Packers Lounge today than on any day I can remember. Fear not, it's all good.
For starters everyone keeps asking for my take on the Favre drama that has dominated the headlines today. To be quite honest, this whole thing is really about a helicopter.
I am sure there will be a million quotes floating around, but the one thing that stuck out to me in the Brett Favre press conference was something he didn't say at all.
Honestly, I don't even remember the question. But, the shit eating grin on Favre's face when he was talking about a being followed by a whirly bird should tell you everything that you need know.
This is about a bitter man that wants nothing more than to have one last moment in the sun. We are witnessing the fallout of our own adoration. The creation of a football star put so high on the collective pedestal that now he can't face the reality of the truth.
Brett Favre is too lazy and too ungrateful to live up to his potential. Today is yet another example.
Brett Favre may give 100 percent on the field, but he only gives about 55 percent the rest of the time. Coincidentally, that's pretty close to his winning percentage in the playoffs. Weird.
Moving on to my own personal waffling, I am going to continue to stay open. The outpouring of support and donations was both unexpected and appreciated. I don't know why you losers like coming around so much. I am a terrible writer, I really don't care what you think, and look at me wrong and it's all over. Not to mention I purposely try to get a rise out of you solely for my entertainment.
Still, I appreciate the call to action that I not so subtly issued. I seriously could not afford it. When I graduate from the University of Wisconsin next year I will take you all out for a nice meal at whatever fast food restaurant makes me the best offer.
So, the people have spoken and The Lounge will remain intact. If there is one thing I found over the last 48 hours it is The Packers Lounge can stand on its own. This is about fun. I'm never going to be a reporter, I don't care about dominating the universe, and quite frankly I plan on going back to doing exactly what I was doing when I started this whole thing... whatever the fuck I want.
I will never make the mistake of letting this place be anything other than a complete dictatorship.
Don't ever tell me how to be a Packer fan. It's the surest way to piss me off.
P.S. Jersey Al and Greg C. will still be on board, and as always anyone else is free to submit anything they want published. The old "Game Day" chat will resume during Packer games, and will be sponsored and run by Mark at PackerHQ. All the bells and whistles you loved last year will be back for another season. I plan on watching the game with my buddies a little more on Sundays, but I will pop in.
