The following comprises actual phrases from actual stories written about a quarterback who last night performed the miracle of transfiguring his old ass off the injured list. These are taken verbatim.

The Vikings had the early momentum, when Favre made a miraculous recovery from a shoulder injury and suited up. Did he really have one of those miracle moments where he woke up and was feeling a lot better than he had been the day before? Somewhat miraculous, considering he was 100% out as of Saturday. Favre made some sort of miraculous recovery in the last 24 hours, another one of his miraculous recoveries. Cold, snow, wind, Favre making a miraculous recovery. A miracle, is what it was, only slightly less miraculous than what happened to Lazarus.
