NEW ORLEANS - In a game that went back and forth more than Kirstie Alley and an ice cream shop, the Saints (once the Ain'ts) pulled it out 31-28 on a field goal by their 16-year-old kicker.
As he watched the ball sail through the uprights one could clearly see Brett Favre on the Minnesota sidelines mouthing the words, "That's it, I'm gonna retire one more time."
After watching her husband get injured during the game, Mrs. Favre, who was sitting in the stands, was asked if she felt that her husband would be retiring.
Deanna Favre smiled her southern lady smile and said that if Bretty doesn't retire she is planning on taking a number 3 golf club and do an Elin Woods number on both of her husband's 53-year-old knees.
Mrs. Favre then laughed and said that she knows Bretty is 40, and not 53, but she added that right about now, she knows that he probably feels like he's 53, 63, or maybe even 73.
Brett's mother who was sitting next to her daughter-in-law remarked, "I done told da boy twiest (twice) dat he needs ta stay retired, but da little fella is as stubborn as a Missouri mule. I think he got it from da milkman."
She winked and said that she was only kidding, the milkman used a condom. she smiled again and said that she has got to find a way to try and do something about her sick sense of humor.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: In the past Brett's mom has joked that Brett was fathered by over 20 different men, including Larry King, Gerald Ford, Bill Cosby, and Maurice Chevalier.]
