Tomorrow, I am going to lace up the shoes for organized basketball for the first time in years. I'm a little nervous, but very excited. Despite being a lot heavier and more out of shape at this point in my career, I feel I have a better shot and better vision on the court. I hope to pull out a victory and get off to a good start. I'll keep you posted. From Dallas, goodnight.
If anyone still wonders why Brett Favre puts on the gear for Sundays, they are crazy. Just when it looked like Favre and the Vikings were going to be handed their first loss of the season at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, Favre pulled out another miraculous last second comeback. He provided another moment of brilliance, this time with two seconds on the clock, after a 34-yard bomb was caught by no-namer, Greg Lewis. Lewis managed to get both feet in-bounds in the back of the end zone, dragging one at the last possible second. Lewis is the fifth wide receiver on the Vikings, and only suited up because Percy Harvin had migraines a few days before the game. Although the pass was officially a 34-yard touchdown throw, it was more of a 50-yard gun-sling from a man who has been in the business for over a decade.
It is remarkable that at 40 years of age, Brett still has it. Congrats and best of luck along the way!
