Farvemageddon only hours away.

It's only a few hours away until the Packers face The Vikings and their old (in more ways than one) quarterback Brett Favre. Expect the Favre manlove to reach critical mass in the next few hours, especially on ESPN, which will be showing the game on Monday Night Football.
The Vikings are 3-0 with Favre, but that's a pretty deceptive 3-0. Those wins against in reverse order: The San Francisco 49ers (in a close game with an improving NFC West team), the (alleged) "Cleveland Browns" (a clusterflock wrapped inside of a train wreck), and The Detroit Lions ('nuff said). Green Bay is 3-1, with wins against Chicago and St. Louis, and a loss to an Cincinnati.
A lot of the talk is going to be whether Green Bay should have let Favre stay with the team. This after years of indecisiveness leading up to Favre's first "retirement". Despite what the Favrelovers say, the Packers were right. A professional football franchise can't be run without a committed starting quarterback, and Favre is pretty much as far away from that as can be gotten to. Favre's distance from the team in the later years didn't help either.
Whatever the outcome, It will have to be a tremendous game to live up to the hype.
