The stunning news of Brett Favre's retirement was not what I wanted to hear. As a long time Green Bay Packer fan, Brett and the team, became one for me. Sunday in the Fall without the Packers, without Brett Favre, is going to seem surreal. I've seen Brett play in person four times, I had always hoped I'd get to see him play one more time at Lambeau.
Truth be told, I have to wonder if Ted Thompson, the general manager of the Packers, had something to do with Brett's retirement.
