I would never have expected to be in this situation,” Favre said last week, after the Minnesota Vikings fell to 3-7. He didn’t expect what? To age? To be exposed as a juvenile narcissist, on and off the field? He didn’t expect his off-season lassitude to result in losses, quarrels, and a league-leading number of interceptions? He didn’t expect to be investigated for seedy stalking, allegedly sending inappropriate messages and images to Jenn Sterger as an attempt at seduction? Mainly, it seems Favre didn’t expect to be denied the abject hero worship and Super Bowl he believes is his perennial due.

Here’s Favre, throwing his 17th interception last Sunday, and yet he has the nerve to argue with and wave off offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell on the sideline. Here’s Favre, dragging a whole franchise into his retirement psychodrama for the past two summers, and helping to cost coach Brad Childress his job. Yet he has the effrontery to suggest it’s a personal sacrifice for him to play out this losing season, as if 20 years in the league should have entitled him to some sort of get-out-of-adversity-free card.
