Brett Favre’s Hockey Future? Ummmm…

From the Iowa CHOPS:

Favre and the Iowa Chops do have something in common.  They both have received a large amount of publicity the past couple weeks, but for completely different reasons.  Favre wants to come out of retirement and play football, but Nitzel believes hockey may be the best sport for him this time around.  “We can offer him plenty of bone-crushing hits, read-and-react plays, and thousands of fans cheering for him, so what’s not to like about that?” said Nitzel.  “All we have to do is sharpen his skating skills and after that, his athletic instincts will take over and he’ll be one heck of a hockey player.”

Nitzel said the Iowa Chops have contacted and will be sending a contract to Brett Favre’s agent, James ‘Bus’ Cook Jr., in hopes that the quarterback will consider signing with the Iowa Chops.  “We live in a beautiful, Midwestern city here in Des Moines and play in a state-of-the-art major league venue at Wells Fargo Arena, so that meets Brett’s criteria of places to play,” said Nitzel.  “We wanted to be the first team to offer him something new and challenging, and I believe he will enjoy the thrill of raising the Calder Cup just as much as he did the Vince Lombardi Trophy back in 1997.”

Read on.  And if you want to know why the Chops have received a lot of publicity lately, you might want to flip over to to this post at Puck Daddy.
