I turned on Channel 12 News and did a spit take with my coffee when I saw the Breaking News Alert. According to the news spot, Fox News has announced that Brett Favre has announced his retirement. Supposedly he announced his retirement to Mike McCarthy last night. Some speculation that the news that Randy Moss signed elsewhere may have prompted Favre's decision to retire.
Channel 12 has been running the story as of 8:35 this morning.
ADDENDUM: Mike McCarthy will hold a television news conference at 3:00 p.m. today.
