Brett Favre, the former quarterback for the Green Bay Packers who retired at the end of the season, officially unretired himself at at press conference today. Favre, who just had his most (and only) productive season of the last five, said that he "feels great and want to be back out on the football field."
"I'm still in good shape. I think that I could comfortably throw twenty-five or thirty interceptions for any team out there."
Even though Favre announced that he is ready to step back on the gridiron, there appear to be no takers in the NFL. Said one scout, wishing to remain anonymous, "Are you kidding me? Favre's got more years on him than my whole team put together. I understand that they re-named the training room after him in Green Bay. Hell, he's probably one of the few guys out there older than John McCain."
Another old timer who could not find a team this season, Barry Bonds, wished Brett well. "Maybe we should found our own sport or something. That 41 year old woman makes the olympic team, but we can't catch on with semi pro crap in our sports anymore...and after all the steroids we took for our sports!"
Teams interested in the services of Favre can reach him through the switchboard at the Vince Lombardi Old Folks Home.
