Joe Shoemaker March 6th, 2008 was a day of true sadness for me. It was the day the hope of a legend, a dynasty, and a legacy died. Brett Favre gave a tearful press conference announcing his retirement. Just weeks later, a spark of hope arrived. Breaking news on ESPN announced that the legend told head coach Mike McCarthy that he was having second thoughts about his retirement. The Green Bay front office shot his hopes of returning to the Packer organization down.
