Mothers and Favre Watch

First of all, I would like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the Madrecitas out there. Here's wishing you all a beautiful day with your family. I hope you are all appreciated for the hard working center of the family you are.

I celebrated by sleeping in until dang near 8:00! It was marvelous considering DD gets up everyday at 6:00am. Not only did DH have breakfast ready when I woke up but he had already showered and fed DS AND had tri-tip going in the crock pot!! Yes, he's one of the good ones. I love the guy!

Secondly, for the fifth year in a row, our family is awaiting exciting news. This usually comes every year in March. However, last year it was at the end of the summer. We are on Favre watch. Yes, football fans. It looks like he might grace us with one more year of greatness. OMG!!

And to top it all off, he's going to play for the Vikes! Holy Crap! When GB traded him to the Jets they (GB) had a stipulation as part of the trade that NY could not trade Favre to anyone in GB's conference. They didn't want to meet Favre on the field. Because they knew he would shove the ball down they're throats! Rightfully so! But now, instead of submitting his retirement papers as a Jet, they released him; making him a free agent. Which means he can sign with anyone that wants him. Including a team in his old division, the NFC North! If he goes to the Vikes he will play Green Bay twice this season; week 4 in Minnesota and week 8 at Lambeau!

According to ESPN, the Vikes and Favre are currently evaluating the condition of Favre's right arm to see if he needs surgery. I don't really know how I feel about him being a Viking because there is kind of a rivalry there, but I would absolutely love to see him stick it to Ted Thompson. I am so excited. I think he'll look good in purple and white. And he's always done well at the Metrodome.

To all those Favre haters who always have something to say: You just WISH he was considering joining your team. If he was you wouldn't be saying anything. You'd happily take him, interceptions and all. Besides, what else goes on in sports this time of year? Baseball? NBA? Bah! Come on Fall!! I want some football.

In closing, I would like to send much love to Mothers everywhere! It's a hard job! You deserve a great day. Also, to Favre's right arm: Please, please be miraculously healed so that he can play one more spectacular, wonderful year! Just one more year, again!
