2008 Card-vent Calendar: December 13

December 13, 2008:
1991 Star Pics #65 Brett Favre

In Wisconsin, our children are taught to count like this: One, two, three, Favre, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Nearing the conclusion of our first NFL season without him at the helm, there is still a palpable amount of good will thrust in his general direction. Schadenfreude is still uncommon in this neck of the woods, in that we don't wish Brett any specific harm.

Actually, I'd be happy if Jet Favre and the New York Bretts get far in the playoffs without winning the whole thing. After that the annual will-he-or-won't-he derby begins, with a few more retirements and comebacks (three of each, perhaps?) taking place between February and July.
