Oh Brett, how we hardly know ye...

You know Brett, we Packer fans love ya, and will never forget all the great moments in Green Bay.  Even after last year's fiasco, where I think management's pride was as much to blame as anything else, we wished you well in the AFC.  You then retired again, only to entertain the idea of playing yet again, this time for the Vikings...
 
...you say no to that idea, only a few weeks ago...
 
and now, reports are, that you will sign with the hated vikings.  the vikings.  the F#$%ing Vikings. 
 
What's happened to the emotions of Packer fans everywhere is not fair at all.  Maybe that doesn't matter.  Maybe you don't care.  Maybe you do care, I think you do, but it doesn't overrule this burning desire you have to play football.  You.  A man with nothing left to prove in this game...
 
Like I said, Brett, we love ya, but it remains to be seen if this is unforgiveable.  If you of all people lead the purple and gold to victory against the Packers, you Brett...well, I just don't know I'll handle that.  And now, we have to root against you.  Packer fans, rooting against Brett Favre.  The thought of it is sickening. 
 
I've always supported your right to play.  You are a football player, it's all you know, it's what you're great at, it's what God meant  you to do on this earth, it's your life.  You don't judge my "legacy" or tell me when to hang it up, so I certainly won't do that to you.  If you can still play, and still want to play, then play.  Life is too short to pass up doing what you love to do.  That said, Packer fans can't stand losing to the Vikings, and no way can we root for you against our team.  No way can we cheer for you against the Packers and, depending on the division standings, I'm not sure we can root for you playing against anyone else in the league either.  I guess I hope you throw for 4,000 yards, 30 TD's, lose to the Packers twice, and finish behind us in the division.  That's the ideal.
 
Good luck playing for second place in the division this year - I can only say, I hope, that to you, when we've beaten you twice and won the division, that it was worth a second place finish (or worse) and the price (however fairly or unfairly) you're going to pay...
