Oh, glorious day. It’s nice to know that things have slowed down enough for him to find the time to authorize one of his lackeys to register a Twitter account for him.

Also: I love his Twitter profile bio: Father, Husband, Retired NFL quarterback.

He’s really retired, kiddos. No one lies in their Twitter bio, you know.

Favre, Warner hardly fazed after learning of bounties
