And here we go again.  Just one day — ONE DAY after Favre announced his retirement he has told the media that he is still undecided and that he would return if healthy.  This guy is truly unbelievable!  Many experts believe that Favre doesn’t want to go to training camp — that he would prefer to be the savior of the Vikings if they get off to a slow start.  Without Favre, the Vikings start Tavarias Jackson at QB.  If the Vikings get out to a 1-3 start, Favre would love to come marching back on the field and win the game.  If he succeeds, people will talk of what an amazing player he is.  If he fails, he can blame it on the injury.   But, as of right now, Favre is saying he never officially retired.  This is just too confusing.


In the NBA, with all the attention on the Miami Heat, it’s important not to forget which team is the defending Eastern Conference Champion.  That team is the Boston Celtics, and they’re not exactly rolling over.  Remember, they still have Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and possibly the best point guard in the league, Rajon Rondo.  Well, now they’ve signed up the big fella — Shaquille O’ Neal.  O’Neal is definitely in the twilight of his career, but he still confuses defenses when he’s on the court.  They don’t know how to guard him or play against him.  He change a team’s complete offensive strategy.  This was a smart sign for the Celtics, and O’Neal will play a huge factor come playoff time.


Finally, in baseball, Alex Rodriguez finally got over the hump.  He has been standing at 599 home-runs for almost 2 weeks now.  He’s been in a terrible slump.  Well, yesterday, against the Toronto Blue Jays, A-Rod sent the ball soaring for his 600th home run.  This is a tremendous achievement, as only 7 players have hit the 600 mark. With that said, there is a huge cloud and asterisk hovering over this accomplishment, as A-Rod publicly admitted last season that he had spent a considerable amount of career time using illegal substances.  This is the reason why 600 home-runs isn’t making big headlines.  NY Yankees 5, Toronto 1.
