| Awkward Singing With Matt Ryan »

Well, here we go all over again -- Brett Favre, not wanting you to forget him as you head into the weekend, has written a letter to the Packers, asking for his release, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen
The letter was sent by Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, via overnight mail on Thursday and arrived at the Packers facility Friday morning.
Cook, on behalf of Favre, expressed a desire to have an amicable parting, as the Packers have been reluctant to embrace his return.
During a conference call on Tuesday that included Packers general manager Ted Thompson, Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Favre and Cook, sources say that the quarterback stated emphatically that he wanted to play again.
It appears he definitely wants back in, but the Packers definitely don't feel the same way.
And for all the Bears and Vikings fans out there: "[Favre] appeared to be in excellent physical condition and threw the ball with ease, even throwing a football 50 yards "on a rope" with high school receivers. He has been throwing and running with the team for more than a month."
Get used to seeing Favre's face during every waking hour (and probably in your nightmares, too) -- this isn't going away any time soon.
