End of the Road

In September of 1992, Boyz to Men was on the top of the charts with “End of the Road” (great song.)  The #1 movie was “Last of the Mohicans” (never saw it.)  September of 1992 was also the last time that Brett Favre was not in the starting lineup for an NFL team.  And since a lot of people have been wondering what I think about the whole “Favre” situation, I thought I’d throw my two cents in.  And if you remember the song, “End of the Road,” hum along in your head as you read this.  It will work as a nice soundtrack.

I’m officially tired of Brett Favre.  Tired of hearing his name, tired of seeing it scroll along the bottom of ESPN every 30 seconds.  Tired of his ankle, his elbow, his cell phone, his Lee Jeans.  I don’t know if he could have anymore drama surrounding him.  Some people suffered from Favre Fatigue long ago.  I just reached the breaking point on Sunday night.

Yes, it’s true that with two broken bones in his ankle that he’s still probably the Vikings best option at quarterback, I just don’t think the Vikings or the fans are receiving a very good return on their $20 million investment this year.  Unless you count “drama” as a return.

End of the Road?  Last of the Mohicans?  Probably.

  1. Hey Reggie,

    End of the Road is a classic tune. Couldn’t agree more on your Favre sentiment. I am also stoked for CoCo’s return on TBS. My wife and I have been going through CoCo withdrawal! We’ve been forced to flip back and forth between Reno 911 and the Nightly Business Report on PBS.
