(Editor's note: we interrupt your regularly scheduled Cincinnati Bengals coverage as required by the U.S. Blogging Code, section B, paragraph F, line 4: "All sports blogs are required to cover the retirement and/or un-retirement of Hall-of-Fame-Presumptive-er Lord Brett Favre." Failure to abide by this regulation is punishable by being named a member of the media and then compelled to ask for the second-string long-snapper's autograph in the locker room. Following this, the offending blogger is ritually disemboweled by the ESPN Ombudsman. For more information, visit www.MayTheFavreBeWithYou.org.)
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
