Sad News in the NFL

I live in SW Ohio, am a die hard Bengal's fan and have never lived in Greenbay WI. However, I loved watching Brett Favre play football (Greenbay Packers QB). He played with the spirit and excitement of a young boy. His career was amazing, the stats tell the story; 61,655 Passing Yards - NFL Record; 5,377 Completions - NFL Record; 442 Touchdown Passes - NFL Record, 160 Career Wins - NFL Record, 3-time NFL MVP - NFL Record, 253 Consecutive Starts NFL Record (QB), 1 Super Bowl Win, 9-time Pro Bowl Selection.

Today Brett made the tearful annoucement that he was retiring from football (you can watch Favre's press conference on I think most people in the football world was surprised. His talent and attitude will be remembered forever.

Like Brett said in his news conference "All good things must come to an end".
Thanks Brett for 17 amazing years!
