Sports Icon Retires

Bret Favre announced his retirement from the NFL today.

I am just guessing that this was a very tough decision for him because Bret epitomizes Competitor.

Oh, well BOL to Bret & family.

Probably for the same reason the Washington Redskins should retire their name

I don't care--hell, I hate professional sports. But, that's an absurd name, especially for the nation's capitol. How about the angry sambos, or fighting hebrews, or whatever

I was watching NCAA basketball the other night and saw the Utah Utes. I thought they had shorten their names but it is actually from an Indian tribe.

Got me to thinking about other schools that could shorten their names: Pennsylvania Pencils? Motto could be "we're number 2! "

Or Virginia Virgins. No one could score on them. Cheerleaders would be like Go GO GO, Stop!
