Favre Retires

After years of hinting one way or the other, Brett Favre finally made it official and announced his retirement today. I know I'm a Vikings fan and I'm supposed to hate all things Packer, and I did love that Favre never seemed to be able to win in the Metrodome. It may be hard to root for a man loved and worshiped by those who wear blocks of cheese on their heads. But over the years I gained a grudging respect for the man and the way he played the game- especially in his excellent final year.

So wow, with Tavaris Jackson, Jon Kitna, Rex Grossman and Aaron Rodgers, the NFC North might be the worst-quarterbacked division in recent NFL history.

UPDATE: Awful Announcing compares ESPN's coverage of Favre's retirement to "like a president had died."

With the exception of ESPN, I'm surprised how little media attention this has received in contrast to the overkill in the latest round of primaries.
