Sports headline of the future
Aug. 18, 2090:
MINNESOTA–The Minnesota Vikings have been secretly conducting talks with Brett Favre about a comeback, according to well-placed sources.
“It’s no secret we need help at the QB position, and Favre is one of the all-time greats,” said a Vikings executive. “Why wouldn’t we explore every option available to us?”
A call to Favre’s agent was not returned.
Favre has been the subject of speculation nearly every year since he retired from the New York Jets in 2009. He died 14 years ago, but that hasn’t stopped a steady stream of rumors and reports about an imminent return.
“So he’s dead, so what?” said the Vikings executive. “There’s no expiration date on greatness.”

    “He died 4 years agao…” I must have missed that headline. Come on “14″ years ago? This isn’t Mark Twain rumored to be returning to play with the Vikings, it’s Brett Favre.

    It’s satire. See the headline, and the date…

    With my roaming dyslexia, strabismus, frizzy orange hair, big red nose and lips, wearing my size 20 shoes, baggy striped pants and polka dot vest 2090 looked like 2009. Had that been 2009 maybe someone other than me would have thought this Viking executive was sarcastically referring to the end of Favre’s best days when he said he had died.

    Ha you are too funny as I read your post as you intended.

    Thanks :-)

    Anything’s possible! If a dead person could vote in a Chicago election, a dead athlete can still play. Very funny stuff! I wish he’d just make up his mind already.
