Give the waffler his due

October 20, 2009 - Jim Anderson
I've had a change of heart about Brett Favre.

A couple of months ago, I was rooting for the Vikings to go 0-16, or 5-11, somewhere in that neighborhood.

The Vikings, of course, are 6-0.

For Packers fans worried about the Vikes going all the way, there’s always this suggested T-shirt: “The Vikings finally won a Super Bowl, but it took a Packer to do it."

We published an Associated Press item today about Green Bay's mayor asking for suggestions on how to "tastefully" welcome Favre back for the Nov. 1 game at Lambeau.

Mayor Jim Schmidt said he'll select his four favorite ideas.

One suggestion calls for making the world's largest waffle in the shape of No. 4.

At, there are a number of ideas, such as creating a video montage of Favre's interceptions and playing it before the game.

I like this one: a montage of Favre highlights while the speakers blare Joan Jett's "I hate myself for loving you."

Actually, there’s quite a bit of support for a simple, respectful, standing ovation.

I could go along with that. Kind of gives you the chills.

The mayor should OK it immediately.

Then call it off on Friday.

Endorse it again Saturday.

Sunday, not so sure.

You get the idea.

I wonder.

Would it be possible to get 70,000 people to stand at once. Then sit. Then stand again ...

Welcome back, Brett.
