This Just In: Brett Favre Will No Longer Tease Us

Brett Favre Press Conference
Favre: "I'm crying for Vikings fans who have to put up with Tarvaris Jackson for one more year.

There is a God, and his word has been passed down to Star-Tribune reporter Judd Zulgad who let it flow freely (first?) via the interwebs:

"Brett Favre won't be joining the Vikings. Vikings coach Brad Childress told the Star Tribune late this afternoon that the quarterback informed the team he has decided to remain retired. "

So does this mean the Vikings will go after Mike Vick?

Have fun with Michael Tito Tarvaris Jackson and Ken Rosenthal Drew Rosenhaus Sage Rosenfels as they attempt to boost the morale of a team that was expected to get a future Hall of Fame quarterback in the fold. The only person celebrating this more than yours truly is John David Booty, who gets to keep his beloved No. 4 jersey.

That is, of course, until Favre announces his return before Week 4 -- when he will suit up against the Green Bay Packers.

A Hollywood producer is writing this script, isn't he?
