Streaks Are Meant To End – Records Are Meant To Be Broken

For the first time since September 27,1992 Brett Favre will be on the bench with a clip board in hand watching his team play. Tonight when the Minnesota Vikings play the New York Giants, Favre will not have an active role on the field.

Favre’s record, excluding play off games, is a starting quarterback for 297 consecutive games over 19 seasons. That streak ends tonight,leaving a new NFL record to be broken.

Unlike Baseball’s iron man Cal Ripken who chose to sit out a game, Favre was forced to sit out tonight after taking a vicious hit from Buffalo linebacker Arthur Moats just three snaps into the Viking – Bills game.

Regardless of opinions formed about Favre over these last few seasons it is time to just look at what he has done, 297 consecutive regular season games, amazing.

What makes Favre’s accomplishment so rare is the average NFL career spans less than 4 years, yet Favre lasted 19 seasons.

To put more perspective on this Peyton Manning is the current player with most consecutive starts behind #4. Manning has 205 starts and could catch Favre in 2016.

But has anyone played the position with the passion and flare Brett has exhibited through out his career? How many times have we seen BF take off running to get that first down, take on linebackers head on instead of sliding. How many times have we seen him get off the turf battered and beaten with torn muscles, concussions and broken bones only to start the following week.

Former Detroit Lions defensive tackle and football great Alex Karras once said quarterbacks should where a skirt in the backfield. Karras never met Favre at least on the gridiron. Karras was a 4 time pro bowler who also made the 1960s all NFL team who played from 1958 to 1970.

Tonight marks the passing of an era the Brett Favre consecutive starts streak leaving new record to be broken. I dont know if it will be Manning or some one else, I just hope it is some one who has the same passion for football and the same flare that belongs to the once invincible Brett Favre.

In 2013, the Indian Premier League is stepping into its 6th edition with a significant change in its sponsorship. It is no longer the DLF IPL. The popularly known DLF IPL is now going to be called Pepsi IPL as PepsiCo has replaced IPL as the title sponsor of this glamorous and celebrity hyped cricket tournament. The 6th session of this cricket tournament is a just a month away and will begin on April 3, 2013 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata with an extravagant opening ceremony followed by the 1st match of this tournament to be held between 2012 IPL champion Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils.

The 5-year Rs. 250 Crore contract with DLF ended last year and the company did not apply for the renewal of this contract. Meanwhile, PepsiCo grabbed this opportunity and made a 5-year contract with the BCCI for Rs. 396.8 crores for the next five years which will continue till 2017. Apart from this major change in sponsorship, many other amendments have happened in this tournament. After the termination of the Kochi Tuskers from the IPL in 2012, Deccan Chargers is the second team which has been terminated from this tournament this year. Last year, nine teams participated in the tournament. So, after the termination of the Deccan Chargers, the organizing body of this tournament, BCCI, invited Hyderabad based bidders to form another team to replace the Deccan Chargers. Sun TV Network won the bid and has a new team called Sunrisers Hyderabad which was purchased at a cost of Rs. 85.05 crores per annum.

Also, there have been huge additions and subtractions in the player list as well. On February 3, 2013, the 2013 Pepsi Indian Premier League Player Auction was held where thirty seven cricketers were bought by all the nine teams for a total sum of US $11.89 million among which the highest amount was paid for Glenn Maxwell, the Aussie all-rounder. Mumbai Indians bought him for an eye-popping amount of US $1 million along with Ricky Ponting. Pune Warriors India bought Michael Clarke once more after last year. The most significant reshuffling was noticed in the Royal Challengers Bangalore team which bought the maximum number of players in the auction – a total of seven: four overseas and three Indians. Sunrisers Hyderabad bought six players in the auction; five overseas players and one Indian. Among the 37 cricketers who were bought in the auction, only fourteen players are new while the rest have been reshuffled. The only uncapped cricketer who was sold in this auction was Nathan Coulter-Nile. Mumbai Indians bought him.

With a lot of changes in the entire IPL 2013 season, this tournament is ready to rock the entire cricket world once more. All the nine teams: Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, Pune Warriors India, Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are ready to add more colors to this much hyped cricket tournament.
