I wrote a new blog a few days ago and never got around to posting it. Then Favre announced his retirement and it kind of took the wind out of my sails. At a conference in Spokane, I watched all the Sports Center coverage from a lonely hotel room.
The shame of it for me is that Favre will be to Ryder what Johnny Unitas is to me. Neither of us will ever fully realize their greatness because we were not old enough to have experienced their legendary careers. For that reason I am sad.
