      EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Brett Favre returned to Minnesota
Tuesday, stirring hope among Vikings fans that he may be ready to
play this season. The 40-year old quarterback arrived in a private
jet trimmed in the Vikings' purple and gold colors.
      Earlier in the day, Favre's website posted a message saying
"stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on
Brett Favre's possible return."
      He threw 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season to
help Minnesota reach the NFC title game.
