Favre Needs Ankle Surgery To Play

C'mon old man, get up!

Much like it did last offseason, the debate around whether or not Brett Favre will play quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings will center on whether or not Favre elects to have surgery.

Last year Favre needed to have a torn biceps tendon repaired to play. This year he’ll need surgery on the grotesquely swollen ankle he injured in the NFC Championship game. As we reported last week, the ankle has been sore and swollen all offseason and has Favre questioning whether he should play in 2010.

“To play again, I would need the surgery, as I suspected,” Favre said. “This decision would be easy if not for my teammates and the fans and the entire Vikings staff. One year truly felt like 10 — much like Green Bay for many years. That’s what I was missing in my heart I suppose, a sense of belonging.”

It’s OK, that statement made me throw up, too.

Anyway, Favre consulted Dr. James Andrews, who performed his surgery last offseason, this week. Andrews advised Favre surgery would be unavoidable if he planned on playing again. Now, Favre has determine whether his love for ass slapping his teammates and the potential of a Vikings’ Super Bowl (hahahahahahahaha!) are enough of a draw to go through with the surgery.

Normally, I’d insert some commentary in this space about how Favre should just piss off and fucking retire already, but honestly, I could really care less at this point. Call it Favre Fatigue.

Much like Brett is conflicted about coming back, I am conflicted about being rid of him forever and the prospect of Clay Matthews breaking his fucking ankle during the 2010 season.

    Disappointed in favre..I thought he would come up with something more creative this year…not a rehash of last year’s story.

    I wonder if he’s in bed with that doctor…maybe buisness spiked pretty good last year after his “high profile” client so they are going to do it all again.

    This guy is a fucking disgrace…he wants us to forget him yet he won’t forget us….fuck him..

    How can favre say that one year on the vikes was the same as 10 years on the packers! this guy used to be my hero but after that i cant stand him anymore

    It’s all just hot air to avoid training camp. With his track record there is no reason to believe otherwise.

    So glad this is the vikes headache now. He’ll be back for one more, then retire (maybe). Then they’ll will be kicking themselves for not drafting a QB this year. No worries about who our QB is for years ahead.

    Favre: (Perusing newspaper) Hmm, this is the third straight week with no news about me…Deanna, have you seen any news about me on ESPN? Deanna?

    Britney: She’s over at Mr Rodgers’s place getting her migraine treatment dad.

    Favre: Hmm, those migraines must be getting worse. And when did Aaron get a place in Kiln? Oh well. Hey Bus.

    Bus Cook: (Gets off knees and wipes mouth) Yes Brett

    Favre: You think you could get a story about me out to the press? Preferably to that fat cocksucker Peter King, he would write a column about me taking a shit.

    Bus Cook: Sure, right away Brett.

    Favre, Whoa, whoa, easy there Bus, finish what you started.

    Bus Cook: Yes, sir (Opens mouth)

    Hey Al Borland’s Beard

    I think you really want to be in bus cook’s place, on your knees infront of the greatest. There is so much longing and pent up jealousy in your post, you should call brett…who knows you may get your wish :)
