Complete Dud

Yep, I called it right. Edouard was a complete dud. We got a serious shower for less than five minutes and some sprinkles a few times, but that's it. What a rip off. I was really hoping we'd get more precipitation from him. We seriously need some rain here.

Another complete dud for me, sigh, Brett Favre got traded to the Jets. Can you believe it? It seems wrong, almost sacrilegious. It was one thing when we all cried with his retirement speech just five months ago then to get worked up again with him coming out of retirement, but to play for another team. There's all the talk about Packer's management thinking Brett wasn't winning material anymore to him selling out. Since I've always had complete respect for Brett Favre as an upstanding man and player, I'm leaning toward blaming the Packer's management. I think I'd rather him stay retired than play for someone else, but you can't stifle a person's craving to play the game whatever game it may be. And then there's a part of me that deep down hopes he plays so well with the Jets that Packers management sees they made a huge mistake. Don't get me wrong, I still love Brett and always will because of his history with the Packers, but I don't know how long it's going to take me to get over him playing for another team. The saga has definitely ended.
