And Another Thing


And now, the live transcripts of the Brett Favre intervention

So now that Jared Allen, Ryan Longwell and Steve Hutchinson have gone to Hattiesburg, Miss., and physically dragged the endlessly dithering Brett Favre back to Minnesota, I have a few ideas what was really said to close the deal:

1. "Oh, good grief, Brett. We told you already. Nobody's going to make you eat the broccoli at training table."

2. "If you come back with us today, you can ride in a black SUV and we'll get the news helicopters to track it from the air on the way to camp, just like O.J."

3. "Bum ankle, you say? How'd you'd like a bum ass? 'Cause if you don't get off yours right now, we're going to kick it until you forget all about your poor widdle ankle."

And last but not least:

4. "Tarvaris says hi. Oh, and you're a wuss."
