A Pastor's Open Letter to Brett Favre


Ed Hogan, a Baptist pastor in Houston, has some tough advice for Brett Favre. You may read it on his blog here. I particularly liked the "speech" he wrote for Favre to allow him to still back out gracefully:
"It is obvious that my indecision has caused a great deal of pain and confusion. It is in the Packers' best interest and in my best interest to honor my original decision to retire. For the pain and confusion I have caused, I am genuinely sorry. This decision is irrevocable. I am going to spend my days helping those who have not had the opportunities I have had. I am looking forward to spending time with my wife and kids. They matter most. Thank you and good bye."
