Favre family books rooms for Viking game

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Brett Favre's family is ready for his return to Green Bay if he winds up playing for the Minnesota Vikings.

Favre's family and friends have booked 25 to 30 rooms at the Midway Motor Lodge near Lambeau Field for the weekend of the Nov. 1 Vikings game at Green Bay, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

The quarterback's family and friends often stayed at the hotel during Favre's final years with the Packers, Midway manager Doug Warpinski told the newspaper. Warpinski declined comment to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old Favre retired in February for the second time, blaming a partially torn biceps tendon for his poor play for the New York Jets. The 3-time NFL MVP reportedly had surgery on his right shoulder in May.

The Vikings have expressed interest in bringing him back for a 19th season.
