Longtime Quarterback sensation Brett Favre is finally throwing in the towel. A person in the loop with Brett Favre’s situation told the Associated Press that Favre is retiring and will not be returning to the Vikings.
“The person who spoke to the AP says Favre called coach Brad Childress to say his injured left ankle is not responding as well to surgery and rehabilitation as he had hoped. The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an official announcement.”

Steven Jackson will not face criminal prosecution over allegations that he beat his girlfriend when she was 9 months pregnant with his child, due to a lack of evidence. She decided not to file the case until over a year after the incident. She stated that Jackson made her lie about her injuries after being thrown into a door knob. It looks like another athlete gets off scotch free.

Kahn is a local business man, he resides as president of an auto parts store, Flex-N-Gate Corp. He is a graduate of the School of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois. He will be purchasing 60% of the team from Rosenbloom and Rodriguez, who had inherited the team from their late mother. The commish, Roger Goodell, still has to approve the deal before it is finalized.
Multiple league sources describe Khan as an enthusiastic Rams fan who has attended home games at the Edward Jones Dome. League sources say Khan is committed to keeping the team in St. Louis — and that was an important consideration to Rosenbloom and Rodriguez in making their decision to sell to him.
I have never really understood sports memorabilia, but clearly others eat it up. Some nut with too much money bought Alex Rodriguez’s 500th Home Run ball from Aug. 4, 2007 for $103, 579 in an online auction. 500 hrs is a huge accomplishment but it didn’t break any records. It just put him in a class of 25 other baseball greats. Sure A-Rod is one of the best ball players in the history of the game. My question is what about home run 501, 502, 503, etc. Each one of the those moves him higher up on the list of greats, but again I have never understood the nostalgia of high end sports memorabilia. For the record that is not even close to the highest amount paid for a baseball. Barry Bonds’ record-breaking 756th home run ball was sold for $752,467 in 2007 and Mark McGuire’s 70th home run ball from the 1998 season was sold for an astounding $3 million.
