What’s Your Prediction?

Need more proof on whether Brett Favre is about to become the Vikings new quarterback for 2009 ? Well, here are four tidbits to nibble on for those of you who haven’t quite reached the saturation level yet.

1. Favre and wife Deanna allegedly made a $30,000 deposit on a condominium near 50th and France in Edina last weekend.

2. According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the word is 40 percent of the Vikings’ playbook is being customized for quarterback Brett Favre. This story, if true, means that the Mississippi man of mystery has probably already agreed in principal or otherwise to a contract with the team.

3. Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune wrote a recent article that Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman was in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Wednesday to check on the physical condition of quarterback Brett Favre.

This is Sugarman’s second visit to Favre in Mississippi. The last time he was there in mid-June, Sugarman gave the former Packers star some exercises he could use following arm surgery.

A Vikings source who has been in contact with Favre recently reported that the surgery seven weeks ago was a complete success. With training camp opening 10 weeks after the surgery, Favre’s arm should be back to full strength. There seems little doubt Favre will be in uniform when Vikings training camp opens in Mankato on July 31.

4. Single-game tickets go on sale July 20, and it’s a pretty good bet that the Vikings will try to make “THE” announcement coincide. Sort of an “ Economic Stimulus Package” of their own. It simply makes sense from a marketing standpoint.

Any guesses on the date of the first official announcement ?

Winner gets:

1. His/her name or nickname, title, etc.- In the article immediately that follows.

2. My Undying Admiration for your abilities as a Psychic ( For what that’s worth !).

3. The knowledge of knowing you were right when almost every other journalist in America has been consistently wrong !

As incredible as this may sound…..ALL this can be yours if you can accurately predict the Big Day ! Send your predictions to by hitting the “add your comment” button below.


( Winners MUST have their predictions in BEFORE the actual announcement as this would illiminate the whole “Gee, that was a great prediction !!! ” thing ).

Nothing of any actual value will be given out in this promo.

Any resemblance between the creator of this poll and an actual human being is purely coincidental !

Names have been changed to protect the innocent !

    The press conference where Brett Favre announces he is coming out of retirement to play for the Vikings will be Thursday, July 16. It will be a grand event. The entire world will be watching. Unfortunately, Brett will retire again about a week later. The reason, John David Booty will not give up his number 4 for any amount of money. Booty is then found dead floating in the Mississippi. Favre has no alibi.

  2. Dan says:

    July 15th. Press Conference will be at 1:30. Booty will wear number 10. Vikings carry 4 QBs on the roster for the year. Sage takes the news hard and T-Jack will win the back-up job.

  3. alex c says:

    the news that Brett Favre will join the vikings will be on this upcoming monday, July 13th. the vikings will have him sign a contract the following day if not then.

  4. Luke H says:

    The announcement will come on July 17th because everything good happens on a Friday. It will happen mid afternoon and no one will be able to concentrate at work or get anything done until that announcement comes. Minnesota’s economy will lose 1.2 million just from the lack of work on Friday morning. The good news is that Favre will bring in 3.7 million after joining the team from people actually wanting to come to the games. But even more important than the 3.7 million, the Vikings will WIN their first Super Bowl.

  5. Kevin says:

    Luke H is correct. The announcement will be Friday July 17.

  6. Brendan Engle says:

    17th or 18th, however since someone has already said the 17th, I’ll go 18th.
