This one looks like it will stick.


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/1025) has decided to retire from the NFL after 17 seasons.

FOX Sports first reported Tuesday that the Green Bay Packers (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/teams/packers) quarterback informed the team in the last few days. ESPN.com said that according to Favre's agent the quarterback told coach Mike McCarthy of his decision.

Waaaah! I can't blame him, but I'll miss him. No one had a bad day like Brett Favre. And when it was clicking in all cylinders - sports magic.

Love, love, love Brett Farve.

Speculation is that he was hoping for Randy Moss. That might have had something to do with his decision. He needed a receiver.

Class act. The game will miss him.

I'm weeping. He's Green Bay's god and he'll be missed, that's for sure.

I'm not a Green Bay fan, but I love Brett Favre. I'd hoped he would play another season at least. Truly a good guy who never takes himself too seriously and who is always classy, win or lose. :(

I dunno. Can't get too interested in a guy who can't even pronounce his own name.

I called to tell my dad this morning and actually got so choked up that I couldn't speak. :(
