Here's our Top Ten Reasons for Brett Favre to finally retire...again.

10) So he can unretire and then skip most of training camp before joining team president Mike Holmgren's Cleveland Browns.

9) Did you see that roll out and then throw all the way back across the field into traffic pass for an interception at crunch time he threw last night? There's your reason to retire right there.

8) So he can devote more energy to his secondary career as a commercial spokesman...for mobility scooters.

7) So he can spend more time with his family. That may not be true, but that's what everybody who retires says.

6) So he can pull a weekend shift at Favre's Steakhouse once in a while. Good help is hard to find.

5) So he can watch the new big screen TV he finally decided to buy from the little weasel of a sales guy in the Sears commercial.

4) Because Deanna's Honey-do list ain't getting any shorter.

3) So he can start leaking rumors about changing his mind and making a comeback again because, y'know, having your own category on the sports crawl at the bottom of the screen is so freaking cool!

2) Because he has nothing left. If what I heard is true, he left it all on the field last night, and since it was in New Orleans, somebody stole all of it. Nothing left.

And the number one reason Brett Favre should retire for good...
He's now old enough to get Medicare and no longer needs employer-subsidized health insurance.

While it may be difficult for us to to understand the crazy behind-the-scenes goings-on at NBC late night, it must be even more difficult for viewers in other countries (though I'm not sure why they would care!).

Thankfully, NMA, a Hong Kong NEWS organization has prepared this animated report that makes the whole mess so easy to follow, even a 5 year old could understand it. Well, a 5 year old on acid.

Seriously, WTF?

No matter if you're looking for the ultimate piece of Brett Favre memorabilia, a creepy decoration for next Halloween, a neat place to store the beer during your NFC Championship Game viewing party, or just a cheap way to dispose of Aunt Myrtle, we've got just the thing.

It's the coffin from this past fall's Funeral 4 Favre. This sturdy wooden coffin, lined in purple and bearing the number 4 on the lid is just the thing. It even has rope handles for easy pallbearing.

The coffin is hand made by Jon Kirk from the Wisconsin Hearse Organization and has been shown in numerous newspaper articles and on many TV newscasts! Professional news photographers have literally crawled over each other to take it's picture! Hundreds, maybe even thousands (seriously!) photographed the coffin while Brett's body (or a reasonable facsimile, there of) lay in it while in state at Tom, Dick and Harrys!

NOW IT CAN BE YOURS!!!!

Call the Rick and Len Show this morning (1.20) between 6 and about 9:50 and place your bid. All the money will go to charity!

UPDATE: Bidding is now closed. The coffin sold for $450.00. The winner will split his contribution between The Red Cross's Haiti relief fund and Children's Hospital.

Thanks to all who participated!

The annual Campbell's Chunky soup "Click for Cans" online food drive is in its conference championship week and Packers fans are being called upon to "click" their team to victory.

Fans are encouraged to vote online at www.clickforcans.com through Jan. 18. Individuals can vote once a day.

A win this week over the New Orleans Saints would secure 13,000 cans of soup to be donated to Wisconsin hunger relief efforts. A total of 1,000 cans automatically go to each team, and a Packers' conference championship win earns another 12,000 cans.

Should Packers fans "click" their team to victory this week, the Green and Gold then will challenge for its eighth consecutive league title next week and the additional 5,000 cans of soup.

In winning each of the past seven contests, Packers' fans have earned approximately 98,000 cans of soup for Wisconsin hunger relief efforts through the virtual food drive.

Some British bobbies have been reprimanded after they used their riot shields as makeshift sleds during the country's cold snap.

A passer-by filmed the bobbies goofing around on a snowy hill in Oxford and posted the clip on YouTube. It shows a policeman barreling downhill while another shouts, "Whatever happens, keep smiling!"

Ricky,

That shtuff is hillf****inglarious! Perhaps a bit risque for Wisconsin. I hate the weather freaks. Probably my biggest bitch is people who worry needlessly about the weather. If you can't wake up and look outside and determine what apparel is appropriate then call your mommy! By 8Th grade a Wisconsinite should be able to say "Hey! It's sunny. T shirt weather" Or "Crap! It's snowing, I'll put my boots and a jacket on" And don't even get me started on the government scare tactics. It's weather people! We have survived it since the dawn of man. Keep up the good work!
