The never-ending stories

I was just starting to get used to the idea of the Minnesota Vikings ushering in the Sage Rosenfels era upon the announcement that Brett Favre would stay retired.

But then ESPN reported Friday that Favre's playing status for 2009 is indeed not settled.

A source close to the situation told ESPN's Jeremy Schaap on Friday that X-rays of Favre's right shoulder -- he has pain resulting from a torn biceps tendon -- have been sent to the Vikings and that the X-rays are in the process of being evaluated. If it is determined by Favre's and the Vikings' medical people that he needs anything less than "major" surgery on his shoulder, Favre will unretire to play for the Vikings, the source said.

Speaking of unresolved issues, there is still the matter of seating the next U.S. Senator from the state of Minnesota. The latest is that the Minnesota Supreme Court will hear arguments in early June. From there, who knows when a resolution will come about.

This question was posed to Vikings radio analyst Pete Bercich on NFL Network earlier this week. Now I'll ask you.

Which long, drawn out saga will conclude first?
