Brett Favre Retires

Brett Favre is one of those sports personalites that you just can't hate. The man stayed with the Packers for 17 years, this franchise in the back of nowhere (otherwise known as Green Bay) where he has become almost deified by the population. He's had great success in his 17 seasons but always remained humble, grounded. He battled an addiction to painkillers and won. Last season he lost his father, came out against Oakland and blew the Raiders off the park. Then this year, despite everybody thinking that he was going to retire because the '07 season had gone so badly (4-12 record, career high interception rate) he came back and led the Pack to the NFC championship game before being beaten by ze Giants in overtime whilst breaking pretty much every QB record in the book during regular season.

What a hero
