HATTIESBURG, MS - Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre announced that Brett Favre from the future appeared before him as he mowed his lawn yesterday and told him to return to the football field in 2007.
"Brett said, 'Brett,'" Favre said, "'I'm from the year 2012, and you and I are still able to play at a high level. Don't retire. Hang in there just a few more years and we'll beat Troy Aikman's son in the Super Bowl.'"
Favre said he has taken his own advice and will return "for at least one more year, probably more. Why not? The future me is probably smarter than I am."
The 17-year NFL veteran said his future self traveled back in time in a time machine a future local scientist had built using a pontoon boat and stolen plutonium.
Asked if his future self offered him any other advice, Favre paused. "Well," he said, "he told me Heather Mills is going to be calling me in a few years asking how much I'm worth and if I'm still happily married. Brett said not to take the call."
