This weekend, your local Gannett newspaper ran a column that the Packer\'s facing Brett Favre was "Ted Thompson\'s Worst Nightmare". While, I agree, it was certainly a bad dream, I wouldn\'t say it was his WORST
nightmare. This is Ted\'s WORST
It’s January 2031. After quarterbacking the Vikings to 42 consecutive wins over the Packers, zombie Brett Favre, who died on November 1st, 2009 when he accidentally inhaled the toxic fumes from his own burning jerseys before playing the Packers at Lambeau, once again defeats his former team with a miracle last second pass in the NFC championship game before going on to quarterback the Vikings to their 21st consecutive Super Bowl title where they are presented with what was once known as the Lombardi Trophy but has since been renamed the Brett Favre Trophy.
Following the game, zombie Brett Favre announces his retirement, just as he has following each of the previous 20 Super Bowl wins, only to return again the next year and the year after that and the year after that and the year after that winning all Packer-Viking games and all Super Bowls until the year 2064 when the NFL disbands since Favre and the Viking’s domination of the game has left even die hard Minnesota fans bored and disinterested. All of America blames the demise of the NFL on former Packer General Manager Ted Thompson, who’s for the last 27 years of his life had been working at the only job he could find, polishing zombie Brett Favre’s extensive collection of Super Bowl rings and MVP trophies.
Thompson would have been largely forgotten by this time, if it weren’t for the fact that his name has replaced the word “dumbass” in the American lexicon. And that, my friends is Ted Thompson’s worst nightmare!
