Brett Favre continues to pop up on the sports news radar these days. Now that the NFL lockout is over, speculation is growing about Brett Favre playing once again.

If Rick Pitino were at the podium, the announcement might go something like this: "Brett Favre is not walking through that door, fans."

Back in 2000, Pitino, the former coach of the Boston Celtics, famously announced that retired stars Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parish were not returning to help his floundering team.

At the moment, there's no plan for Brett Favre to return to the football field this fall, according to his agent.

Favre's name started buzzing online several days ago when Eagles quarterback Michael Vick tweeted that he "would be honored" to have Favre as one of his backups in Philadelphia.
