Oh Good Gracious... Vikings May Have Sent Trio To Convince Favre To Return

The Vikings, in their continuing quest to make this saga resemble as closely as possible someone who's trying to get a date for the junior prom, may have sent three players to Hattiesburg, Miss., to get Brett Favre to return for 2010.

Take it away, Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune:

...The Vikings began the morning practice on Tuesday at Winter Park without defensive end Jared Allen, offensive guard Steve Hutchinson or kicker Ryan Longwell on the field. All three were at practice Monday and haven’t dealt with injuries of late.
 
It's believed the trio was sent to Hattiesburg, Miss., to try to convince Favre to return. Sources confirmed the three were not at meetings earlier this morning either.

A kerfuffle over text messages... people anxiously gathered around a pickup truck to find a decision... a high school football team...

One can only assume that Allen, Hutchinson, and Longwell were dispatched to deliver one thing and one thing only: a note from Zygi Wilf.

"Dear Brett: We like you. Do you like us? Check yes or no."
