I don’t know if this will hit the national wires, but yesterday at Packers.com, the official site of your Green Bay Packers, a news release was posted announcing Brett Favre’s retirement.
The Packers front office claims it was a goof, with the people providing the web content just prepping for either outcome of the Brett Favre toin coss. The entry, which includes body text that says, simply
would appear to corroborate that story.Â The announcement was taken down shortly after it appeared.Â But it made the headlines of every local network this morning.
Bus Cook, Favre’s agent, claims Favre has not yet made a decision.
But you have to admit, it’s a darn fine way to put some logs under that fire.
