Aaaand We're Back, Just Like Brett Favre

It's been almost a month since my last post on the Sports Oasis. Chalk it up to being busy, moving to a new city, getting drunk for 30 consecutive days...whatever. The point is, the posts are back just like Brett Favre.

What's that? You didn't realize that Favre was ever gone? Well, that's understandable since he basically pulled the same semi-retirement bullshit he does every offseason just on a higher level.

When Favre announced his retirement I lauded him for going out on top. Then it became apparent that the Favre lovefest wasn't going to end anytime soon. In fact, it appeared that he wasn't even going to stay retired, and that somewhat changed my opinion that Favre had finished his career admirably.

Now, we're a little over five months from the day Favre announced his "retirement", and we get to turn on the TV and see him holding up a New York Jets jersey.

Fucking great.

You know, if this was another player, one who had never hinted at retirement or strung people along with the idea that he might not be coming back, I might could give them a pass on this. However, this is Brett "I seemingly almost retire every offseason" Favre we're talking about, and based on his prior track record regarding this matter he's handled this in the most douchetastic way possible.

Yet, if there's one small positive thing in this debacle it's that he went to the Jets. Yes, I know that my beloved Dolphins will have to face him twice this year, but I had no grand illusions of them being all that good this season. Sure, the Jets will probably beat them, but I will relish each and every interception that he throws against Miami.

Hey, this is Brett Favre we're talking about. He's good for at least two or three int's over a two game span.

So, welcome back Brett. I can't wait to see you heave passes into the arms of your opponents just like you did to close out that NFC Championship game. It's going to be sweet.
