    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy was grilled about rumors of a Brett Favre comeback Wednesday -- not by the media, but by kids at the Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay.

    On hand to announce a $100,000 donation, McCarthy was asked by 11-year old Miranda Black of Oconto Falls the biggest question in the state: Is Favre coming back?

    McCarthy politely punted, saying such questions would be addressed later.

    After McCarthy dodged a few more questions about Favre, one child asked the coach if he would sign their T-shirts.

    "Sure," he joked. "It's better than answering these questions."

    Pretty soon I am expecting a little skit in the theme of Abbott and Costello Who's on first... change all the positions to QB on the depth chart and you have about the story from the Packers on this deal..

    Player in the skit...
    First Base: Who
    Second Base: What
    Third base: I Don't Know
    Left field: Why
    Center Field: Because
    Pitcher: Tomorrow
    Catcher: Today
    Shortstop: I Don't Give A Darn (usually)

    The Skit

    ABBOTT: Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know's on third.
    COSTELLO: You know the fellas' names?
    ABBOTT: Well, I should...
    COSTELLO: Then tell me who's on first.
    ABBOTT: That's right.
    COSTELLO: I wanna know what's the guy's name on first base.
    ABBOTT: Oh, no, What's on second base.
    COSTELLO: I'm not asking you who's on second.
    ABBOTT: Who's on first.
    COSTELLO: I don't know.
    ABBOTT: He's on third. We're not talking about him.

    Depending on the length of the performance, the routine took equally amusing detours.

    COSTELLO: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?
    ABBOTT: Every dollar of it. Why not? The man's entitled to it.
    COSTELLO: Who is?
    ABBOTT: Yes.
    COSTELLO: So who gets it?
    ABBOTT: Sure he does. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.
    COSTELLO: Whose wife?
    ABBOTT: Yes.

    COSTELLO: Has St. Louis got a good out field?
    ABBOTT: Oh yeah, has it got an good out field.
    COSTELLO: Who's your out field?
    ABBOTT: Now listen,who is on...
    COSTELLO: If you say who is on first one more time, I'll break your arm!
    ABBOTT: Alright, what do you want me to tell you?
    COSTELLO: The name of the out fielder.
    ABBOTT: Tomorrow.
    COSTELLO: What time?
    ABBOTT: What time what?
    COSTELLO: What time tomorrow are you going to tell me his name!
    ABBOTT: No,it is his name!
    COSTELLO: Oh! Now I want to be a pitcher on the team.
    ABBOTT: Ok I can arange that.
    COSTELLO: Ok, now me being a good pitcher I throw the ball, the guy bunts the ball, I throw the ball to first base... now, who's got it?
    ABBOTT: Naturally...
    COSTELLO: Oh, so I throw the ball to Naturally.
    ABBOTT: You do nothing of the kind, you throw the ball to Who.
    COSTELLO: Naturally.
    ABBOTT: That's it.
    COSTELLO: That's what I said!
    ABBOTT: That's not what you said! You pick up the ball and throw it to who?
    COSTELLO: He better get it! I pick the ball throw to 1st base, he throws it to what, then I don't know, a triple play. Another guy hits a long one. Why, I don't know, he's on third, and I don't care!
    ABBOTT: What?
    COSTELLO: I said I don't care!
    ABBOTT: Oh! He's our shortstop!
