As Brett Favre retires I figure this thread deserves one final bump. It's only fitting that I voice my final feelings of Brett's retirement at the site of the final "BFC."
The days of the BFC have come to an end- as we all knew they would sometime, I was just hoping it wouldn't be this
time. I've come to really enjoy heading these "challenges" over the years. Something about counting and laughing hysterically over John Maddens dozens of "Brett Favre's" (And sometimes "Brett Fart's") just never got old. From 2 Monday Night football appearances when Madden was a MNF announcer, to 2 Sunday night appearances on NBC we had 4 BFC's right here at the cafe.
A couple of the early ones were pretty simplistic, it really started out as a bunch of us gathered in another GC thread laughing like mad anytime Madden just said Brett Favre 4 times in the same breath. From there it began to evolve to a "How many times is it possible Madden could use his name during a telecast?" And eventually the final stages of the game we incorporated an official/unofficial drinking game.
Alas the days have now come to an end. Football won't be the same in week 1 without ole' #4 lining up under center for the Green Bay Packers. And sometime midseason, when the Packers play a game on Sunday Night Football, I'll be watching, and wishing Brett was there for old times sake. But as Brett says today, all good things must come to an end. And his football playing days sure were good days.
Take care Brett I hope your days away from football are great!

P.S. This all being said- it has been noted in the past that Madden may have a new crush, a certain, Tony Romo. Only time will tell but there are definite possibilities that we might not be quite done with "Madden Challenges". . . Stay tuned.
