Favre


Brett Favre, the scruffy, supremely attractive, charismatic, and amazingly talented Packers QB, has finally announced his retirement. He says it's time. He's going to focus on his family. He's had a phenomenal career.

What he really means is that he's going to finally have room in his schedule to be my love slave and personal trainer. (The Husband won't mind, right?)

Sad, sad day. Sunday afternoons in the fall will never be the same. I'm telling you, between this and if Friday Night Lights gets canceled like they're saying it will, I will be in mourning for years.

I have been exchanging emails with my friend in Wisconsin. After posting on my blog here was his response, and yes I went and bought the song off iTunes after reading it.

I was thinking this song would make an awesome musical accompaniment to your blog entry today. It's a Jackson Browne song and I'm listening to it now from his newest CD (solo acoustic vol. 2) released today, forever known as the day HE retired. This is THE song, bar none, for the moment.

ALL GOOD THINGS

All good things got to come to an end
The thrills have to fade
Before they come 'round again
The bills will be paid
And the pleasure will mend
All good things got to come to an end

God I wish I was home
Laying 'round with my friends
The call of the wild
Caution thrown to the wind
The fall of the child
Where the longing begins
All good things got to come to an end

Like a river flows
Rolling 'till it ends in the sea
Our pleasure grows
Rolling 'till it ends in you and me

Now as the dark gathers into the sky
And legions of might go thundering by
Regions of light grow dim and then die
And we with our wings
Wait for morning to fly

Like a river flows
Rolling 'till it ends in the sea
Our pleasure grows
Rolling 'till it ends in you and me
Rolling 'till it ends in you and me
Here where the angels
Have appeared and are gone
Your face like an ember
Glows in the dawn
But I want you to remember
All wild deeds live on
All good times, all good friends

All good things got to come to an end
The thrills have to fade
Before they come 'round again
The bills will be paid
And the pleasure will mend
All good things got to come to an end

All good times, all good friends
All good things got to come to an end

Oh. Mah. Gah.

Tiff, if that's true I will do the biggest happy dance ever.

You just made my day.

Hey, maybe the Favre man could get a guest starring role in FNL? Then you could double your pleasure.

I'm not sure you could handle it...
