Brett Favre Wants To Ruin Your Summer. Again.

Remember when Brett Favre retired? That was funny, wasn't it? And then just last week, he asked for the Jets to release him, but also issued a statement, saying, "Nothing has changed. At this time, I am retired and have no intention of returning to football." We here at RCS, along with everyone else, did some innocent speculating about a flight from Minneapolis to Hattiesburg, and in the end said, "All just needless, mindless rumors? Probably. Should you prepare yourself for more of them for the next few months? Definitely."

Well, we were certainly right about the months of rumors, at least.

Yes, as you may have heard by now, Favre plans to meet with Vikings' coach Brad Childress sometime this week; in fact, maybe they already are meeting.

Just when Brett Favre looked to finally be out, the Minnesota Vikings could be pulling him back in. Citing an anonymous source "with direct knowledge of the discussions between the two parties," ESPN reported Tuesday that Favre is scheduled to meet with Vikings coach Brad Childress later this week about a possible comeback with Minnesota.

Favre's agent, Bus Cook, did not immediately return a phone call to his Mississippi office left by The Associated Press.

Childress did not immediately return a message. A Vikings spokesman declined to comment on the report.

I know what you're thinking: but Brett Favre said he was retired! He even texted "NO" (in all caps!) to ESPN's Trend Dilfer! Apparently, nothing is as it seems. But maybe he was just answering the question of whether or not he had a personal trainer? Ugh.

And just like that, I'm already sick of it all. Great. And only 2-3 more months of this. Hopefully Rachel Nichols packed an overnight bag.
