Rampant Rumors Fly Of Favre Home Purchase

We’ve gotten more than 50 but fewer than 100 e-mails over the past 24 hours from folks suggesting that quarterback Brett Favre has purchased a home in Minnesota.
We don’t know where it all originated, but it’s being repeated on radio, Internet, etc.
The home supposedly is in the exclusive “Bearpath” subdivision in Eden Prarie, the city in which the Vikings’ headquarters are located.
We’ve got no idea whether it’s true.  But we need to mention it in the hopes of reducing, if only by a few, the e-mails we get on the issue.

    WOW – what a huge rip – woooooooooooooooosssssssssssssssssh
    the days without a fart meter never even reached one! ( 3 plus hours to spare I might add)
    PS – who gives a flying fart in space

    This is a gated community. I live in nearby Bloomington and am pretty sure he was looking at homes because it was popping up on some local stations as well. He is officially a Cake Eater (This is a term many twin cities folks use for people that live in Edina and more sometimes the prestigious parts of Eden Prairie).
    At this point all this stuff is a formality. Brett Farve is the quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings. As much as I hate this offseason much to do about nothing nonsense that goes on this is actually one very interesting story to me.
    We have hated this guy for so long and now he could be the missing piece of the puzzle. The Vikings could have an excellent team this year. They are returning everything from a solid 10-6 team last season, upgrading big time at QB, and their schedule is 1 to 2 wins easier I’d estimate.

    pffffft, please. Bus Cook says he’s not coming back, and Favre has denied he’s coming back. Why can’t you take these fine, honest, upstanding folks at their word?
    He retired, he gave it all he had, he just doesn’t have anything left to give. Let it go man!!!

  4. erpete says: Jun 26, 2009 9:12 AM

    Rumors also fly that he has a house in the Hamptons…with two solariums and horses named Snoopy and Prickly Pete.

  5. Slim says: Jun 26, 2009 9:14 AM

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Are you telling me Favre is thinking of unretiring and playing for Minnesota? Why haven’t there been more articles about this? Something like this certainly deserves 5 or 6 postings a day.

  6. shmev651 says: Jun 26, 2009 9:21 AM

    Well,if he can’t find a pad by the time training camp rolls around he can crash on my couch!

  7. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Jun 26, 2009 9:21 AM

    The home was actually purchased by Marvin Harrison. :D

  8. GB3Pack4 says: Jun 26, 2009 9:31 AM

    I believe he only RENTED the house he lived in, in Green Bay, though he played there for 4,589 seasons. If he’s actually BOUGHT a house in Minneapolis (EP) – in a situation where he’s gonna be here for just ONE YEAR – good grief, it could be – could it? – a sign he’s actually invested in being here. Almost as if he’s made a decision -

  9. PackAttack says: Jun 26, 2009 9:42 AM

    Good, he’ll have a place to watch games after he goes down in week 5.

  10. pfeff says: Jun 26, 2009 10:05 AM

    I guess I’ll stop sending scoop in. Maybe take that link off of the upper right corner of your site asking for it. Create a nice little website, get on TV, become a snob. I hope if you are on NBC you have to sit next to that communist Keith Olbermann.
    LOL Have a good one Mike!

  11. jeffovikes says: Jun 26, 2009 10:06 AM

    Maybe he bought Culpepper’s place…

  12. titans_fan says: Jun 26, 2009 10:17 AM

    No way… no way he would “buy” a house in Minny when he’ll be playing on a one-year rental

  13. cheapseats304 says: Jun 26, 2009 10:25 AM

    Wow…PFT is getting sick of Favre emails.
    Hey, FLorio…now you know how we feel about you posting countless and meaningless Brett Fraudre non-stories.

  14. PackAttack says: Jun 26, 2009 10:26 AM

    I heard it’s in Sun City.

    What were the terms of the mortgage?

  16. vikes02 says: Jun 26, 2009 10:31 AM

    It was broken by 92 KQRS this morning. They say it was bought and the person who told them was a very close friend of the Morining Show who works in Bearpath.

  17. TheTylerRose-BestEver says: Jun 26, 2009 10:34 AM

    No way he bought a house…a double-wide maybe, but not a house…

    they will have to rename it “bore park”

  22. patsfan1776 says: Jun 26, 2009 10:50 AM

    Why did the Jets release him on May 1st? Oh yeah, he was done, nothing left. Still has nothing left but there is a sucker born every minute. Vikes fans are in for one long season that will get them no closer to winning it all.

    4 gift wrapped games is a solid season? Wow, let the Kool-Aid spill……LOL!

    The Twin Citie’s housing market is on the upschwing! Brett WHO? I hear the Eden Prairie OCB has a great cheese wheel deal on Sunday afternoons!

  25. Darth Ringo says: Jun 26, 2009 10:59 AM

    Hmm, that’s odd I thought he was moving in with Carson Palmer.

  26. CaptAwesome says: Jun 26, 2009 11:01 AM

    Does Favre get a party boat to cruise on too?

  27. SFENDER says: Jun 26, 2009 11:06 AM

    Yes this is a little TMZ for sure but I bet folks in Minnesota are more than happy to hear it.

  28. dawk20db says: Jun 26, 2009 11:21 AM

    Only Mike Florio would write a story just to stop annoying e-mails…

    As a Packer fan, you do realize that Aaron Fraudgers is about 10,000,000 times more lokely to miss a game this year than Brett Favre right?

  30. EverybodyGotAIDS says: Jun 26, 2009 11:25 AM

    Wait, so he’s going to be playing for the Vikings and living in a place called “Bearpath”? Why doesn’t he just go door to door in Green Bay and personally give each person the finger?

  31. ryguyMN says: Jun 26, 2009 11:28 AM

    Rampant rumor my arse. If this story isn’t true, I’ll donate everything I have to charity.

  32. Tollyc says: Jun 26, 2009 11:31 AM

    Since I own Daunte Culpepper’s house in Bearpath, I can assure you he did not purchase my house. However, if he wants to pay me a premium for an basketball court in my house with the remnants of the stripper dust…I am always willing to take an offer. In all seriousness, I don’t think he purchased a house in BP *yet).

  33. jayhawk67 says: Jun 26, 2009 11:51 AM

    Rumors generated by the real estate agent community proliferate when a high profile athlete may change teams–it happens at lot.
    Perhaps this one is true. Weeks of speculation seem to point in that direction.
    If Brett Favre ends up as QB of the Vikings he may well take them to the promised land but his involvement with the team will have to surpass what he showed in New York.
    We also hear that the team may be for sale. Apparently the owner–Ziggy?–has some substantial financial obligations that are nipping at his heels. Given the shaky economy, if this is so he may not fetch the price he wants, or apparently what the team may have been worth even last year.
    For the sake of the Twin Cities sports fans, we hope everything works out best for all involved, Favre or no Favre.

  34. imaginesuperbowlwin says: Jun 26, 2009 12:13 PM

    Wait a minute…doesn’t the city of Eden Prairie have an ordinance in place that forbids trailer parks?

  35. BarnyardBerrianSucks says: Jun 26, 2009 12:21 PM

    I live in the Bearpath neighborhood and if he were to have bought a house, I am sure there would have been a buzz about it from my neighbors. There’s not that many houses for sale right, but if you want to find out you can monitor http://bearpathgolf.com/featured-listings.php and see if you notice any houses that go from for sale to sold in the next few days. I find it hard to believe he would buy vs. rent here.

    ——————————-
    Let’s see….Rodgers played and played well with a separated shoulder and Favre played, but played like crap with a bum shoulder last season, is 15 years older and has a lot more mileage and wear on his body. Throw in the fact that the Vikings are terrible pass blockers (as evidenced by their #6 ranking in sacks allowed) and that’s a recipe for disaster. T-Joke can scramble, Favre cannot. You do the math……

  39. empty13 says: Jun 26, 2009 1:11 PM

    by week 8, injured, or by week 11 totally ineffective.

  40. Devils Advocate says: Jun 26, 2009 1:21 PM

    to Zygi – with love (not).
    if you would learn how to read you would notice my commentrary is not identical. therefore, your comments are not true. you should really refrain from throwing stones at people as you are the one that has your head way way way up fart Favre’s rectum.
    It would be wise not to pick on me because I’ll be on top of you like white on rice in the future.

    Here is the wild card…look for him to rent this house which is owned by Johan Santana of the Mets.

    Otherwise, I am willing to sell him Daunte’s old house for a small nominal fee

  51. Johnny2k says: Jun 26, 2009 3:42 PM

    If he’s going to live in Minnesota I guess that means he’ll be vacationing in Wisconsin. He’ll also be buying a Twins, Lakers (whoops), Timberwolves (mmm – nevermind), North Stars (whoops), Wild, and Vikes jersey so that he can wear them whenever one of the teams is doing well and show that he’s a long-time, die hard, hard-core fan. Those are the rules.

  52. PURPLE_HAY-SEUSS says: Jun 26, 2009 3:45 PM

    Another day with the little boys on the block. Apparently it’s a nice block, but little boys they are. And little boys will always be little boys. Until they go on a date. Unless their moms say “No, you can’t stay up past 10 o’clock on a school night.” And, “No, you can’t have your first beer until you’re 15. I don’t care what age you were when you got your first 7-10 split.”

  53. JimmySmith says: Jun 26, 2009 4:09 PM

    I would think Deanna Favre would prefer a double wide that is closer to the Mall of America than to be down-wind from the Metrodump, the world’s biggest toilet.
    I’m surprised Favre doesn’t just crash on Chilly’s sofa. That would would make for some interesting dinner conversation between those two mental midgets.
    Col Klink: Why did you throw those 3 INT’s?
    Favre: Shut up and get me another cold one, no one questions the legend, the future HOF-er, the life line to you keeping your job, just don’t keep asking me that same question every week.

    You’re such an idiot. I can’t speak for Zygi, but I’ve been as critical of Favre as anyone. Look it up, brainiac. It’s just that Zygi and I can both do without your tired-ass song and dance everytime there’s another Favre thread.
    And the only reason I called you out on your capitalization and spelling is because you told someone else he needed to learn to read. Pot, meet kettle.
    Oh, and it’s grammar. Not grammer.
