Brett Favre should return for another season, just to make everyone Angry

He probably wasn't too happy that his games against the Bears and Packers were televised, either, as he threw one touchdown and four interceptions in consecutive weeks in November against the division rivals, both of which were blowout losses for the Vikings.It's just a gunslinger.He might text, but he definitely won't bite.People become outraged.Then, boom, Brett Favre is back.It was kind of sad to see him get knocked around so badly last year with Minnesota, but at the same time, it was kind of funny.Oh yeah, and there's that little cell phone picture/voicemail fiasco with Jenn Sterger.He'd almost certainly be on a new team -- his third in four seasons after spending 16 years with the Packers -- and he'd just as certainly disrupt the team's chemistry and throw a wrench into whatever quarterback situation the coach has in mind.He won't bite.Curse word] [curse word] [curse word]!Wrangler jeans aren't even all that comfortable!Here was a guy who asked us for years to please, please, please look at him, and we obliged.Likewise with the pick-six against the Jets on Monday Night Football last year.He lied to us!Search Twitter for people's comments about rumors of yet another potential Favre comeback, and the sentiments are pretty much unanimous.NNNNOOOOO!If you're one of the millions who can't stand Favre, you can't lie and say you weren't entertained.He'd also probably be pretty bad at football, based on his borderline-abysmal 2010 campaign.You were.Because of all that, and his annual "Will-I-or-won't-I" campaign, he's gone from one of the most revered athletes in the country to someone who everyone is simply sick of seeing.Common responses include, "No!

I, for one, am hoping for a Favre comeback, simply to watch it play out.Relax, people.But most of all, aside from all that, there's nothing better than sitting back in late summer and watching everyone on TV, in print and on Twitter lose their minds when Favre makes another comeback.There has been no more polarizing figure in football over the last few years than Brett Favre.That stuff happened.He is, without question, one of the most egocentric men on the planet, never hesitant to talk about how impressed he is with himself for being so gosh-darn tough.He got what he wanted, but he probably wished we weren't watching him throw the interception at the end of the NFC Championship Game against the Saints that cost the Vikings a trip to the Super Bowl.Then, there's a statement from Favre, or Favre's agent, which makes people scream, "Shut up, Brett!Dear God please shoot me now!First, there are the rumors, which bring about the "You've got to be kidding me!

He's no doubt a bit of an attention lover (to put it mildly), and his aw-shucks personality definitely has more than a little phoniness to it.You know you were watching.It was Brett Favre!He skipped training camp!
