Though this isn't a Super Bowl XLIV item per say, it does have to do with a Super Bowl MVP. It's also the biggest news in the NFL today. So we feel the need to mention it. And in case you've been trapped under a very fat person today, or work for NORAD, then you know that Cardinals QB Kurt Warner announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this afternoon.

So rather than give our own take on it, here's a look around the globe on Warner hanging em up: As you can see, guys like Troy Aikman, Larry Fitzgerald and Tony Romo are sad to see Warner go, but also honor the man and his 12-year career. No doubt Kurt's inbox is being filled with well wishes from current and former NFL stars as we speak. 

Except one particular e-mail Super Bowl XLIV Blog has been able to exclusively attain. It was sent to Warner by a bfavre_deerhunter4@yahoo.com and had the following e-mail attachment:


Retirement??? Whatchu talkin bout Kurt?

Not quite sure what to make of this, or who that e-mailer might be. But there's always someone looking to spoil the fun. Congrats on a great career, Kurt Warner!

Kurt Warner Retires: What They're Saying

Living in southern Illinois-60 miles south of St. Louis-and also being a Cardinal fan, I have had the opportunity to closely watch Kurt Warner's career from beginning to end.  During his days with the Rams, I had the occassion to listen in on some conversations he had with some football people while at the Ram's summer camp, which relocated to Western Illinois University after the Super Bowl win.  The NFL is losing an extremely positive public face when comparing Warner's achievements and attitude through personal observation and the media reports of other players in the NFL.

The league can use more Kurt Warners and fewer Ochocincos.  On and off the field, Warner carried himself as professional and team role model.  His game stats are impressive as his activities off the field.  He will be sorely missed.  But hopefully, he a will continue with his fine off-field contributions to the community in general.  I sincerely wish the Cardinals find a place for him on the civilian side of the franchise.  Incoming players can learn a lot about being a positive influence on and off the field.

Congratulations on a fine NFL career Kurt.  I am sure your wait to get to Canton will be a short one.
