Our long national nightmare is over

The title of this post is stolen, with apologies to our 38th president, to refer to Brett Favre being traded to the New York Jets. The nightmare was ESPN (among others) covering this story excessively. Don't get me wrong, Favre was a very good (sometimes great) quarterback, but in the end he became just another selfish professional athlete who was more concerned about ME than about team. His "I'm bigger than the team" mentality was demonstrated over the last few years by his maybe I'll retire or maybe I'll be back routine. Finally, the Green Bay Packers took him at his word and moved on. Now, maybe ESPN can figure out that there are other players, other teams and other sports.

I like Favre but this was getting close to ridicolous. I wish him well in NY.
