Promises, promises. QB Brett Favre vowed to return to play for the Vikings if the Southern Miss baseball team returned to the College World Series. Bad news for Vikings — and perhaps fantasy football enthusiasts — the Golden Eagles were eliminated in the Auburn regional on Sunday.
Southern Miss’ return to Omaha, Neb. — home of the College World Series — was a long shot, as the Golden Eagles entered the regional as the third seed. You almost get the feeling that Favre was making some sort of Todd Gack-like wager (for you Seinfeld fans), knowing that Southern Miss was not going to return.
So this means Favre is gone for good, right?
The Minneapolis Star Tribune says to not read too much into it, saying that Favre going through ankle surgery is probably a better indicator of his true intentions.
