I rarely turn to athletes for cosmic truth. That’s a job best left to bartenders. But I find I am in complete agreement with Brett Favre on one of the great issues of this or any other day: NFL training camps.
Favre thinks they’re pretty much a waste of time. No athlete has ever been more right about anything.
They’re starting in a few days, but one doesn't need to pay attention. Ask me to insert hot knitting needles in my ears, scratch my eyes out with rusty forks, run my head into a cinderblock wall. But, please, spare me the training camp stories.
