For those of you who follow professional football, I give you the bizarre story that just gets more bizarre.

Brett Favre, the guy who would be the Mario Cuomo of professional sports — if dozens of boxers hadn’t pre-dated the "I retire, I unretire" act, is back with the Green Bay Packers.

At least for now.

And then it gets strange.

Holy Lombardi! The Packers have hired Ari Fleischer as a consultant. That’s right, that Ari Fleischer.

The Green Bay Packers have apparently decided they need a little help on the public relations front when it comes to handling the ongoing Brett Favre saga.

FOXSports.com has learned that the Packers will employ former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer for one month as a consultant.

Why? I have no frickin’ idea. I thought Ari Fleischer was busy this Summer heading groups slandering Obama — but I guess since the McCain campaign decided to cut out the middle-man on such things and do it themselves he has time on his hands.

This just in, the Chicago Bears, the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions are the new axis-of-evil.

Sadly, Matt Millen of the Lions just hired Scott McClellan.
