We break into the humdrum of everyday life (abortion, life, death, world sickness) for this important news (to those who are cursed to be Minnesota Vikings fans):
The St. Paul Pioneer Press is reporting that Brett Favre will have routine surgery this week and thus put him in line to sign with the Vikings:
Free-agent quarterback Brett Favre is scheduled to meet Tuesday with noted orthopedist James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., about surgery to repair a partially torn biceps tendon in his right shoulder, the Pioneer Press has learned.
Surgery to release the tendon is considered routine and is expected to be performed by Andrews later this week. Rehabilitation for Favre would be six to eight weeks.
If it goes well, Farve, who will turn 40 in October, is expected to sign with the Minnesota Vikings.
