Back in the Fold

Obnoxious Packer Guy has rejected our generous offer of beer and sausages in exchange for his silence. We have decided to allow him to post at KAR again. This decision was made easier with the prescience of OPG's last post:

Here's what's going to happen: Favre's going to report to camp and, being no acceptable trade offers, will compete with A-Rodg for the starting position.

Note the latest Favre developments as reported in the Milwaukee Jenitel:

[I]t appears not only will the Packers take Favre back, they will allow him to compete with Aaron Rodgers for the starting quarterback job.

It didn't hurt that OPG closed his post by telling Vikings fans to "suck it." We always love that.

Speaking of Vikings fans, I have come to the conclusion that they may possibly the dumbest group of people on the planet. I have noticed that they fall into two distinct, but equally stupid subgroups:

1) The ones who have spent the last 17 years telling everybody how much they think Favre sucks all of a sudden desperately wanting him in purple; and

2) The ones who have grudgingly respected his game over the years who nonetheless are more comfortable with the skin tube currently serving as the Vikings QB than with the prospect of a first ballot hall of famer who went to the NFC championship last season helming the Vikings, simply because he carries the Packer "taint".

Indeed, one seldom finds worse self-contradictory moronitude outside of leftyblogs featuring talking dogs who think it regrettable that the Declaration of Independence included the part about the "pursuit of happiness."

There. I'm done insulting 90% of my readership.

Anyway, OPG is here to stay, unless the Nihilist is willing to deal Sisyphus for OPG and an undesignated draft pick.

One more note: given this blurb in the above-linked Jenitel article:

The twin-engine Beechcraft King Air 90 carrying Favre landed at Austin Straubel airport at 7:08 p.m. Sunday from Hattiesburg, Miss. At the airport, 200 or so cheering fans lined a fence outside the tarmac and greeted Favre, his wife, Deanna, and Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, some waving signs at the gray-bearded quarterback.

...we have upgraded the Favre Alert to Threat Level Orange.
