How has Brett Favre been staying busy this winter? Oh, just by taking part in a Friday night dodgeball tournament at the Temple Baptist Church in Hattiesburg. Billed as the ’5th Annual Dodge Ball Tournament,’ Favre was easily the biggest celebrity name in the $30 per team tourney.

The Gunslinger has been busy with alternative sports. You might remember back in November when he participated/cheated in a Southern Miss sorority 5K.

From what we can see of the Twitpics, Favre is looking rather gray, but athletic. The three-step drop still looks smooth.  It’s like the guy hasn’t lost a step.

To say the locals were excited to play dodgeball with Brett would be an understatement.

Nailing guys in the head? Yep, sounds like Favre will be ready to roll once the Eagles call in August after the Nick Foles experiment begins to fall apart.

  • Whether you like Farve or not this is awesome, if you did not like dodge ball in school your a wimp. I'm sure in todays school they probably don't let the self esteem generation play. I bet it would hurt like HLL getting hit by him. Let the negative comments begin, have fun Brett!
  • "Bratt" looks a little heavy. Part of getting older I guess. Seems like dodge ball would be a good sport for him. He's dodged enough defensive linemen in his day along with a few inquiries as to his cell phone activity!
  • Awesome! I'm sure that red ball packs quite a punch when he's throwing it!
  • I'm older so I remember both Dodgeball, and Bombardament. How bad would that suck to have Brett Favre slinging a dodgeball straight at your melon?
  • I like the ones the size of volley balls with a little air out and you could see it wrap around the guys face at impact, those were the days!
  • I wonder how many interceptions he threw....

Ponder must focus on chemistry with wide receivers

Franchise quarterbacks are a rare commodity in today’s NFL. Many teams go years or even decades (see Chicago Bears) without finding a consistent and talented leader at the position. The Minnesota Vikings have had as much trouble as any team finding a keeper at QB. Since the team began in 1961 only three quarterbacks, Fran Tarkenton, Tommy Kramer, and Daunte Culpepper, have started...

2012 Minnesota Vikings in Review: The Year's Best Games

The Vikings season is over, and despite our team not ending up winning the Super Bowl AGAIN, that doesn't mean that our season was a total loss.

Essentially, good games and bad games, both which leave a lasting...
