Black Sunday

Remember that guy or girl in ninth grade who dumped you for your best friend? It's kinda like that.


Or what about that nice guy you worked with for ten years who turns out to be selling secrets to the Chinese? Kinda like that, too.


Mr. Crip doing a little drive-by in Mr. Blood's 'hood? ....yeah like that.


The prodigal returns...except not in a good way. Not to repair the damaged relationship, but instead to break it some more.


What ever way you look at it--Brett Favre returning to Lambeau Field in a purple jersey is just wrong, wrong, wrong. You know it has to be a wrong of epic proportion if Bob Harlan isn't even going to WATCH the game.


The greatest player ever, the storied Green Bay franchise, the amazing 16 year road, with all its twists and turns....should be adding up to a fairy tale ending, not a bubbling cauldron of hurt and animosity. It didn't have to be this way and there is plenty of blame to go around on all sides. I don't think we'll ever sort out the "who did/said what to whom" part of this drama. The reality is that the NFL is a business--a high-stakes one--run by human beings with big egos, agendas, and plain-old human failings. It is just sad that this is what it has come to.


So, is Brett going to be cheered then boo'ed when he comes out of the tunnel? Boo'ed only? It will be interesting to see what happens. My primary care physician tells the story of when he was a student at Michigan and Bush the Elder came to speak....all the students stood and turned their backs to him. I kind of like that expression of displeasure.


Let's hope the Bad Brett shows up--the one that throws all those interceptions, and not the Good Brett that seems to pull something out at the very last second to save the day.

Sorry, but I'm rooting for Minnesota...the Bears will have to fight the Packers for the wild card, I think! :)

Yeah, it was sad, but I am thankful it wasn't a blow out. I had to console myself with the brats and kraut I made. =)

Thank you for writing this MR. People in the Yay just don't understand. (I mean, how could they, they're football teams are owned, owned!.)
I got so upset. I mean, it's like Benedict Arnold, or Darth Vader! You don't just smile and pat someone on the back after they turn on you like that. I'm glad I see a little snippet of the pre-game during the 49ers game, when Favre came on the field and the fans booed. This isn't any ol' regular, buy-em-up switch-em-around team. This is the Green Bay Packers.

hahahaha, sigh. he sucks.

Here is a great article that I feel explains the whole toxic mess.
Like I said, lots of blame on both sides. I also have my theories that have to do with the faulty thinking that addicts have. The old egomaniac with a self-esteem problem.

All schools, all colleges, set up two mammoth functions: to bestow on, and to cover, valuable knowledge. The theological conversance which they conceal cannot justly be regarded as less valuable than that which they reveal. That is, when a servant is buying a basket of strawberries it can profit him to understand that the seat half of it is rotten.
