Report: Favre Makes A Visit To Minnesota Doctor

As the clock ticks down toward veteran quarterback Brett Favre’s anticipated return to the NFL, the only apparent remaining obstacle is his surgically-repaired biceps tendon.
And the Minnesota Vikings are reportedly keeping a very close eye on Favre’s progress following his surgery in May with Dr. James Andrews.
And we stress, very close.
According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press, Favre was in Minnesota, Edina specifically, this Monday to get his arm checked out.
Walters even mentioned the name of the medical office that the former NFL Most Valuable Player visited.
“Psst: A little birdie says Brett Favre was spoted at Tria Orthopedics in Edina on Monday for an examination of his throwing arm, which is recovering from surgery to repair a frayed biceps tendon,” Walters wrote.
And it doesn’t take a birdie to see where this one is going: Favre in a purple No. 4 jersey at some point this summer.

    50 bucks on Favre going to another team next year….. after “Talking it over with the family

    I don’t care about a washed up QB, coming back to a team, that is just going to get routed by Cutler and the Bears.
    not to mention Arron Rodgers and the Packers.

    Really? Ya think? Favre will be in a purple jersey this summer? I mean, you’ve ended the past 47 stories with that little tidbit. I’m starting to believe it.

    Later, the birdie died after accidentally eating a spare key that Favre hid in his food dish.

    Don’t you mean number 1, 6 or 9? I mean, number 4 is already taken.

    I hope the Vikings do the right thing!
    Let Booty keep his number and make Brett change numbers!

    oh joy another Favre post
    who gives a flying fart in space

  11. fridge says: Jun 25, 2009 12:29 PM

    My coworker fed Charlie Walters 2 bogus tips a few years back to see what would happen, both ridiculous Randy Moss trade “rumors”. Both times, the tip was in the paper the next day with the heading “a little birdie told me”. So, take this with a grain of salt.

  12. PackAttack says: Jun 25, 2009 12:32 PM

    Brett Favre’s coming back?

  13. Taintedtrophies says: Jun 25, 2009 12:34 PM

    Well it is official now. Favre is back and the Pack (and T.T.) is doomed.
    Vikings 11-5
    Bears 10-6
    Packers 8-8
    Lions 3-13

  14. CapsLockKey says: Jun 25, 2009 12:44 PM

    I think it became pretty clear a while ago that Favre is going to be a Viking if he’s healthy enough to play. Just about everyone has already accepted the fact that it’s inevitable Favre will be wearing purple next season barring a setback from his surgery, making the ongoing Favre story not interesting anymore. The cloak and dagger stuff isn’t selling anymore.

  15. blackn1t3 says: Jun 25, 2009 12:46 PM

    Does not take a rocket scientist or a little birdie to figure that one out. There are already #4 Viking Favre Jerseys out on the internet for sale. Doesn’t the NFL, Vikings, and Favre have to OK such a process?
    I was under the impression that you cannot manufacture products without the consent of the NFL, player, and the team.
    Besides he can’t be effective past week 8 anyways.

  16. Bob_Nelson says: Jun 25, 2009 12:47 PM

    Favre cannot travel unnoticed.
    Brett Favre cannot leave his house, go through 2 airports, and to a medical office then back through 2 airports and to his home without being seen.
    Impossible!
    This, Mr. Florio, is why people do not listen to Charlie Walters.
    You knew this story was untrue before you even added this to PFT.

  17. jbass77 says: Jun 25, 2009 12:51 PM

    Isn’t it only a ‘return’ to the NFL if you actually leave the NFL?

  18. smokesome says: Jun 25, 2009 1:02 PM

    hey vikings fans, or non vikings fans living in or around the twin cities, remember when someone spray painted “moss is boss” on that big ship thing in front of the vikings practice facility? that was funny

  19. packernet says: Jun 25, 2009 1:06 PM

    This just in – Favre scratched an itch on his left arm – between the wrist and elbow – details to come…

  20. marcduke says: Jun 25, 2009 1:26 PM

    Dammit that’s right down the street from my office. I wish I would have known – I would have liked to have offered Brett a nice chocolate pretzel.

  21. zygi milf says: Jun 25, 2009 1:30 PM

    Damn – I just gave Bob_Nelson a “5″.

  22. TenGallonAllen says: Jun 25, 2009 1:40 PM

    There’s a part of Charley Walters’ column called ‘Don’t Print That’…generally, the information contained in this portion of his column should not be printed because it is factually incorrect. Just so everyone outside of Minnesota is aware.

  23. ryguyMN says: Jun 25, 2009 1:52 PM

    I’ve heard from a source that Brett Favre has indeed purchased a home in Eden Prairie, MN.

  24. Smush Rodrigez says: Jun 25, 2009 2:12 PM

    That little birdie was John Madden’s johnson.

    ——————————————————————————————–
    You’re right (never thought I’d say that) —- he was spotted (aka seen) at a medical office….

  26. handyandi says: Jun 25, 2009 2:37 PM

    “Don’t hate the playa…hate the game!”
    —Actually, “Don’t hate the playa…hate Ted Thompson!”
    Favre is a legend, just like Moss! Deal with it!

  27. Slow Joe says: Jun 25, 2009 2:53 PM

    This just in: 20 minutes ago Favre took a dump at a Chili’s Restaurant that was unusually purplish…

  28. cheddar is beddar says: Jun 25, 2009 3:14 PM

    old fever is getting close to 40, so i bet this appointment really included checking for an enlarged prostate or the beginning of ED.

  29. Kevin from Philly says: Jun 25, 2009 3:49 PM

    blacknit,
    Maybe there’s another guy named Favre who’s just a real big Vikings fan and likes the number 4….and ordered 100,000 jerseys for himself.

  30. Majkowski89 says: Jun 25, 2009 3:55 PM

    This just in – Favre asked Victoria’s Secret to make sure his vagina wasn’t showing through his purple hip-hugger panties in the new catalog.

  31. patsfan1776 says: Jun 25, 2009 4:06 PM

    I am shocked we haven’t seen a statement from his agent denying the whole thing. Buss must be busy working with that Gov from Carolina.

  32. lito says: Jun 25, 2009 4:32 PM

    Most of Bret Favre’s critics will watch him play. Go Bret Favre and the Vikings. We look forward for a new stadium and the Vikes first Super Bowl win. Tickets will be sold out and a huge audience for the televised games. Go Vikes!

  33. Bored Mark says: Jun 25, 2009 4:48 PM

    Its amazing how much time people spend commenting on articles they refuse to read anymore about people they swear they don’t have man-crushes on.
    Admit it – at least a couple of you throw your Wranglers on and read Brett Favre articles everynight with a fine Bottle of Boone’s next to the fireplace.

    Just out of curiosity, Tt…what is your deal? I am compelled to ask because of your inflammitory screen name…
    On the one hand, you have stated here that the Patriots accomplishments are “Tainted”, they are cheaters, wouldn’t have won anything without “cheating”, blah blah blah…..Then you come on here and predict they’ll be the best team in the AFC…
    So…did they win 3 Super Bowls only because they “cheated”, thereby “Tainting” their trophies (thus your oh-so-clever name). Or was their, ahem, “cheating” utterly irrelevant to their success, as evidenced by overwhelming success from 2007 on. Confused . Please clarify. Thanks.

    —————————
    TaintedTrophies may be a Packer basher. Just a guess. He’s visiting a Vikings thread, he bashes Ted Thompson and says the Packers are doomed this season. He predicts the Vikings will win the NFCN and get the #3 NFC playoff seed.
    But I agree. He needs to clarify that user name so we can find out who needs to hate him.

    Report:
    Farve cut a loud fart that stunk so bad, he was rushed to the rectum Doctor’s for observation.

  37. steve2e says: Jun 26, 2009 7:50 AM

    Taintedtrophies, I think I would have the Titans and Miami in the hunt for the AFC. I don’t see San Diego in it. Last year was the end of their window.
    I’m not sure on the Saints or the Seahawks. The Seahawks are about 2 years away from being solid again. I think I would include the Falcons and the Bears. I think the Bears are going to surprise people.
