TUESDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION Since it opened in 1923, Yankee Stadium has played host to 37 World Series and will play host to its fourth All-Star Game Tuesday. 8 p.m., Chs. 5, 45.

TAKE YOUR PICK: How should the Packers handle the Brett Favre debacle?

A: Beg Favre to reclaim his role as starter and hold a hollow quarterback competition in camp to appease Aaron Rodgers.

B: Stick with Rodgers and grant Favre his unconditional release.

C. Stick with Rodgers and trade Favre.

Our Take: It’s not A, because the Packers don’t want Favre back behind center — he’s 38 and likely to revert to the gradual career decline evident before last year’s aberration. Favre doesn’t want to wear the green and gold. Otherwise he simply would have announced he was going to play again this season instead of requesting his release.

It’s not B, because the Packers aren’t stupid. Even Favre doesn’t have the right to kick management in the teeth. That is what would happen if Favre were to sign within the NFC Central. The Packers can’t allow that under any circumstances, much less one that involves no remuneration.

The answer is C, so expect the Packers to trade Favre to an AFC team over the next few weeks. The most logical choice would be Baltimore, but the New York Jets or Oakland Raiders are also options.

TWT SIX — Best Pro Logos

1. Boston Celtics — Unlike Notre Dame’s leprechaun, Boston’s smokes a pipe, carries a shillelagh and does parlor tricks.

2. Pittsburgh Steelers — Nothing says blue-collar brute like the U.S. Steel logo, applied right-side only.

3. Boston Red Sox — No matter how much outsiders loathe the franchise, there’s no denying the Old English B or the stockings.

4. Oakland Raiders — Simple, iconic, monochromatic, malevolent. … Aaargh!

5. Chicago Blackhawks — It might not be politically correct, but it is really cool.

6. New York Yankees — Makes the list primarily because the interlocking letters might be the world’s most recognizable sports logo.
