Kurt Warner is likely going to announce his retirement on Friday, so sayeth the Arizona Republic. The pride of Northern Iowa, the deeply religious man who may be the only football player ever to go from stocking shelves at a grocery store to the NFL Hall of Fame in 11 years flat, will hold a press conference Friday. Somewhere, Matt Leinart is panicking. Norman Chad, perhaps the funniest voice in sports writing, repeatedly said that Warner was from another galaxy. It is near Melmac – which is where Warner thought he was after getting de-cleated against the Saints – we’re sure of it.
Always a good feeling.
It’s a war out there.
