Because I know you care: Brett Favre returning to Vikings for 20th NFL season

It's an absolute shocker, I know:

The on-again, off-again drama that is Brett Favre now appears to be on again. A trio of Vikings teammates including Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive end Jared Allen and kicker Ryan Longwell flew to Hattiesburg, Miss. to push Favre to give them one more season.

Favre informed the trio Tuesday that he is, in fact, back in and will rejoin the Vikings, has learned.

Somewhere, my mother-in-law is cheering. Please don't tell her that I hope our Colts meet Favre's Vikings in the Super Bowl this season and kick their collective asses.

Side note: Rich Eisen of NFL Network wins the 'Hilarious Tweet of the Day' award.

 As Favre was taxiing down runway, flight attendant pulled the emergency slide upset that it's taken him this long to decide if he's back.
