Favre retirement talk like a false alarm
On July 29, 2009, this newspaper's sports section had a headline that read: "ALL4NAUGHT."
It was in reference to the Minnesota Vikings "losing out" on star quarterback Brett Favre, who said he was retiring from the NFL - yet again.
"I didn't feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable," Favre was quoted as saying two Julys ago.
"I would like to thank everyone, including the Packers, Jets and Vikings - but, most importantly, the fans."
