Brett Favre was in Seattle earlier this week, and looks supremely happy to be in the presence of the Mariner Moose. Just like a kid out there. No Popeye arms this time. Gotta keep it clean and classy for Safeco Field.
In other Favre news, the former Packers quarterback said yesterday on Sirius XM Radio that he hasn’t been back to Green Bay — except as an opponent — since he was traded to the Jets in 2008, but wants to return sometime this season (though he doesn’t want to be a “distraction”). Aaron Rodgers told ESPN Wisconsin’s Jason Wilde that he and Favre are friends now, and talk “every now and then,” so hopefully Favre can work out some sort of appearance at Lambeau this year.
I continue to be very excited for the Packers to retire Favre’s jersey.
