Game face on? I've got my game heart on -- right on my green shirt sleeve, where you can always find it on football Sundays.
Robert: Tell me they aren't hyping the Vikings-Packers in Abu Dhabi, where the game must kick off at, what, 11:15 p.m.? Is it even being televised in the Middle East?
Psycho: Vikings fans don't really LIKE Brett Favre, do they? How is that possible, after hating him all these years? They've got Adrian Peterson, the best back on the planet, yet they're parading around in purple No. 4 jerseys -- worshipping the biggest nemesis they've ever known. There's something wrong with that mentality. Something we learned in Sunday school about worshipping false idols...
Charles: Since when is a game from the NFC's North Division bigger than the Giants-Eagles on the East Coast?
Matt: What's your Bear-blooded take on this one? You want Favre to punk the Packers, right? But then the Vikings will be on a runaway train to the Super Bowl, won't they? I don't think you can win this one.
No matter where you are, you have not been able to escape the endless chatter and buildup surrounding Favre's return to Lambeau Field. Imagine being right here in Wisconsin, close to Ground Zero. To write any more would be to contribute to the hype. Thanks for that extra hour, though. The media has been taking full advantage.
I just wanted to make sure you to know where I stand on this...
