Favre unretires (again)

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Brett Favre's latest retirement lasted all of three weeks.

The three-time MVP has done an about-face for the second time in as many years and will play for the Vikings this season.

If the wait for Favre's decision seemed neverending, it was resolved Tuesday in a few short hours: the 39-year-old Favre jumped on a team plane in Mississippi and was picked up at the St. Paul airport by coach Brad Childress himself. The two drove to the team's practice facility, where Favre waved to hundreds of cheering fans.

No less than 90 minutes later, Favre was on the field in his familiar No. 4 jersey with purple shorts and a purple helmet, a vision that has had Packers fans cringing about for months. He shook hands with a few of his new teammates and quickly began throwing as fans peeked through the security fence to catch a glimpse of the superstar.
