Favre’s dance choreographed with precision

His waffling in the media is driven by a desire to dodge spring OTAs; his itch to play on is fueled by a weird insecurity.
There were a few hours at mid-afternoon Friday when Brett Favre seemed ready to be in the background of national sports coverage. ESPN was ready to puts its focus on Alex Rodriguez’s return to the Yankees lineup and the Dodgers’ second game with Manny Ramirez missing.

Favre and his agent, Bus Cook, could not put up with this. Perhaps Chris Mortensen and Ed Werder were bored with the pair, because they found a new bobo within the ESPN empire to leak information: Jeremy Schaap.
