Colin got an email from someone who's friends with the pilot taking Favre up to Minn. He didn't believe it but he just got two confirmations from reliable sources.


http://wcco.com/vikings/brett.favre....2.1133319.html

Source: Favre Expected To Sign With Vikings Today
Reporting
Mark Rosen MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) ―

A high-level source with the Minnesota Vikings tells WCCO-TV's Mark Rosen that quarterback Brett Favre is expected to sign with the team Tuesday.

Favre is on currently on his way to Minneapolis and is expected to sign with the team this afternoon, the source said.

WCCO-TV spoke with an official at the Hattiesburg, Miss., airport, who saw an airplane with the Vikings logo leave the airport Tuesday morning. The flight number for that plane has been blocked from tracking systems.

In late July, speculation that Favre would be joining the Vikings roster abruptly ended when head coach Brad Childress said the quarterback would remain in retirement.

On July 28, Childress said that he received a phone call from Favre and said that the quarterback would remain retired.

Now it appears that declaration was perhaps a bit premature.

That's impossible. Didn't you hear, he said he was retired.

I'm psyched. I just hope he makes it to October 25th!

6 years ago when I got a list of all the upcoming opponents until 2009 I said (jokingly) wouldn't it be great if Favre was still playing with GB b/c I'd love to see him play live.

Never did I think I'd have a chance.

As a Southern Miss alum, I've always liked Brett Favre. Helluva QB, seems like a nice guy. But honestly, I'm a bit put off by his "I'm retired". "I'm coming back". "I might retire"....and finally "I'll let ya know halfway through the preseaon". ENOUGH ALREADY.

He also voted FOR the war before he voted AGAINST it.
