Brett Favre's agent, Bus Cook, doesn't want to start rumors, but let's START SOME RUMORS

With the Vikings season quickly approaching dumpster fire levels, we'll take anything we can get. Per AL.com:

"Today, he could play today,'' Cook said Monday night before his appearance as guest speaker at the New Horizons Credit Union-1st & 10 Club meeting at Heron lakes Country Club. "I saw him the other day. He's in the best shape I've ever seen him in, physically.

"His arms look like a blacksmith's arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. He runs four or five miles a day. He's coaching at the high school and they're undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today.''

In speaking about Favre, the player who started Cook in the business of representing athletes, Cook said it isn't the physical gifts that separated Favre from the others. Instead, it was his passion for the game.

"And none of them, I don't care who you watch, was more exciting and loved the game (more),'' Cook said of Fvare. "He made the game exciting to watch. He was going to throw it to somebody. It may not be who it was supposed to be, but somebody. And he just loved to play football."

This is absolutely priceless. The chances of him wearing purple, or any other NFL uniform for that matter, are about 0.00001 percent.

But it won't ever end in zero until Favre's arm falls off. That's what makes it fun.
