This contest has ended. See below for winners and mentions.

Sports radio and the blogosphere are abuzz with rumors of future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre once again coming out of retirement, this time to don a Vikings uniform. There’s vigorous debate on whether No. 4 would be a detriment to the team or lead it to its first Super Bowl victory.

MinnPost followers on Twitter, should the Vikings recruit Favre, tweet the 2009 Vikings marketing tagline in 140 characters or less. My shot: “Your Minnesota Vikings, now topped with aged cheddar.”

This contest runs through Friday morning. The winner will receive two tickets to the premiere of the critically-acclaimed hard rock documentary “Anvil! The Story of Anvil,” at the Uptown Theater this Friday night, May 8, followed by a short set and meet-and-greet by Anvil.


This week’s winner of two tickets to “Anvil!” for tonight:

    NO NO NO. Keep Favre retired. End the madness.
