It is always fun to get to say “I told you so.” Yours truly has it on very good authority that Brett Favre, aka Brettedict Favreold, aka Berty Judas, aka Baron von Dongschotz, appeared in a Vikings propaganda-rally video that was played in the 4th quarter last Sunday. The video was part of the “Bring it Home” series the Vikings have deployed to rally the fan base this year. So far this does not appear in any news segment, but this website will keep readers updated and informed once it is confirmed further.
Beyond that, he not only has picked them to win last Sunday, he has stated on the record he wants them to win it all.
“I want to see the Vikes win,” Favre said, via an email exchange with Mark Craig of the Star Tribune. “It’s their time.”
As readers of this site know well, I have always been against reconciliation. And this latest affront to true Green Bay Packers fans everywhere — you know, those who are opposed to despicable turncoats — merely provides an exclamation point to this righteous position.
Do you people really think he wants the Packers to win another Super Bowl under Aaron Rodgers? Of course he does not! And what does it mean that he went on the record expressing his desire to see them win another Super Bowl, when he still has not stated publicly he wants Rodgers, McCarthy and the Packers to win it all?
Of course, that we are now in the midst of a nightmare scenario should give everyone flashbacks of the 2009 season. It is very doubtful Philadelphia will be a “this is not Detroit” debacle, but a Super Bowl birth. This is of course exactly what Berty Judas wanted all along, and never recanted or tuned away from it. It is a most shameful disgrace indeed that so many Packers fans seem to forget: shame and eternal shame. We are all living this nightmare again this year, standing on the razor’s edge once more. This year we may not be so lucky.
At least I get to say that I am right, and those who disagree on this were — and are — wrong. But this is indeed small solace in the face of the worst nightmare imaginable.
