Think it sucks to deal with the Favre nonsense? Try being a Vikings
Drew from Deadspin sums up this mess better than anyone else today. [warning, strong language follows]
I’ve done the angry rant thing about this signing already. But, on a more rational level, I’m not sure there has ever been a situation more confusing for one set of sports fans in history. (OW-UH IDENTITY CRISIS IS GREATAH THAN YOUR-AHS!) This whole Favre thing is easy for Packer fans. YOU STABBED US IN THE BACK, YOU FUCK! That’s a pretty simple emotion to get a handle on. In a way, I envy them for their situation.
I, on the other hand, have no fucking clue how I’m supposed to feel when I turn on the TV this fall and see Brett Favre throw a touchdown pass for the Vikings, and then do that fucking thing he does where he runs around in a circle and the analysts laugh joyously at his playful antics. Oh, I know how I’ll react when he throws one of his inevitable 28 picks. Vitriol is easy like that.
