Dear Mr. Favre,
After last night's game, I really felt compelled to write you this letter. You see, I have been a Vikings fan for as long as I can remember. Never once have I been a bandwagon fan, but a true purple and gold lover during the good and the bad seasons. However, this season was different from any other that I have experienced. This season our team became an unstoppable force, lead by none other than you, our fearless and talented quarterback. Our team was not one to be messed with. By no means is our team filled with perfection, we had our share of fumbles and interceptions, of fouls and missed catches. But man oh man was this year ever exciting!
This year was the season that my husband and I hardly missed a game. It was the season where we cheered along and were excitedly anticipating each game that was played. Then came the infamous playoff game that happened yesterday. Mr. Favre, I feel it necessary to tell you just how amazingly well you and the rest of the team did yesterday. You played a tough team and were neck and neck with them through most of the game. You made amazing drives, great receptions, and four touchdowns! Above it all, though, the one thing I noticed is your spirit. I was amazed to see how many times their team threw hits at you, one that left me breathless to just watch, and yet you came back to finish the game. Very few people have the ability to play with the talent that you displayed in this game.
So, Mr. Favre, while the rest of Minnesota may be upset with the outcome of last night's game, I sit here quite impressed. This year has been one of the most exciting and amazing years I have ever experienced with the Vikings. This year is the only year that we couldn't get tickets to the games we wanted to attend because your team's popularity had skyrocketed! This year is the year that the Vikings proved what they can do as a team - and I am ever so impressed with that!
Take time off and relax. Enjoy your family, enjoy down time. My hope is that we will see you again next season, but if that isn't in your plans, then I must say 'Thank You' ... for the best season I've cheered through!
