Favre makes friendly wager regarding his future

Forget about the Twins. Vikings fans should start rooting for the Southern Miss baseball team. That's if they want a sure-fire way to see Brett Favre in uniform next season.

While most people already expect Favre to return for his 20th season, Favre reportedly made a little wager on it when he visited the Southern Miss baseball team on Thursday, according to Al Jones of the Biloxi Sun Herald.

According to Jones, Favre, after meeting with the team, was asked by one of the players if he's going to play next season.

"I was a kid again watching y'all play in the College World Series,’’ Favre said. ’’That was amazing. I don’t know — yet.’’

Favre paused and then said to the player: "Let’s make a (fun) bet. If you guys go back to the College World Series this year — I will come back and play. How about that? You go back and I go back.’’

Jones wrote that Favre repeated the bet before he left.

"Guys, remember the bet,’’ he said. "Y'all go back and I go back. I promise, I will be keeping up with you. Good luck.’’

By the way, Southern Miss' record is 30-20.
