Now then...here's how that went down.
[Ghost of TV Present]
TV voice: And what an amazing play by Brett Favre! IT is simply incredible what he's doing! THIS IS EXACTLY WHY WE WILL BG HIM NOT TO RETIRE IN THE OFFSEASON!
Inside his head:
Mike Holmgren: Sigh.....I'm going to miss this.
/does Rocky-esque montage of visiting Seattle sights including the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and every Dick's Burgers franchise twice.
/sees young boy aspiring to be a head coach yelling at his friends
Mike Holmgren: I have to do it. I can't let this be my last season.
(looks at watch)
It's 6:05...I have just enough time to catch the 6:07 bus to get home and tell my wife.
/Lingers awhile looking at broken branch on the ground. Laughs slightly at irony. Hears bus drive away.
MH: Jimminy Christmas!
/walks home, though it takses long due to not being a montage.
The next day...Seahawks Headquarters...
MH: Tim! Tim! Tim!
Tim Ruskell: No, Mike, I will not keep a Gatorade cooler full of bisque on the sideline for your personal use, stop asking.
MH: No, no. That's not it at all!
MH: Well, it'd still be neat, but no. I've made a decision about my leaving.
TR: (grabbing champagne bottle) THAT'S GREAT!!
MH: yeah, I thought about where this team is headed and my legacy...
TR: (humming Celebration)
MH: And I...I...
TR: (under breath) We're excited for Jim to take over early and start putting his stamp on this franchise...
MH: I want to come back next year.
TR: (drops bottle, jaw)
MH: We have some unfinished business! Let me try!
TR: Oh God, you saw Brett, didn't you?
TR: You did!
TR: HAHA, whatever dude. This team needs some fresh leadership.
MH: Ah, fooie. Oh well, I hear the weather in San Francisco is nicer anyway.
Mike Singletary: (drops pants) WHAT?!?
