Favre retires; now what?

Brett Favre has once again called it quits. Last week, the sure-fire Hall of Fame quarterback said, for the second time, that he is leaving the NFL.

Will the Green Bay Packers’ fans and organization embrace Favre with a legend’s welcome and an inevitable retiring of his No. 4 jersey? Or is there still bad blood between Favre and ownership after coming out of his first retirement and playing for the New York Jets?

Freeze out

The underachieving Pittsburgh Penguins gave the pink slip to head coach Michel Therrien on Sunday. Replacing Therrein at the helm of one of the NHL’s most popular teams is Dan Bylsma, who previously coached the Penguins’ American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Speaking of coaches getting fired, it won’t be much longer before Rangers’ coach Tom Renney is let go. The fans at Madison Square Garden were calling for his head after a 5-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.

Country for old men

Are you ready for some baseball? Ken Griffey Jr. is ready at age 39 and looking to become an Atlanta Brave. Both sides have shown interest in bringing Griffey to Atlanta, and he may even sign with the Braves before spring training games begin.
