(Newser) – One of the hot sports rumors this week was that the St. Louis Rams were interested in luring Brett Favre out of retirement to play QB again. Just how serious they were remains in dispute, reports CBS Chicago, but Favre insists he'd never go back. One self-described "scary" reason? Memory loss, as he explained to SportsTalk 570 in DC. Excerpts via Bleacher Report:

  • "I don't remember my daughter playing soccer, playing youth soccer, one summer. I don't remember that. ... This was pretty shocking to me. ... For the first time in 44 years, that put a little fear in me."
All those hits apparently took a toll on him, too.
