So the NFL contacted SBN and wants us to link to his press conference (already in progress). I will say this: I greatly appreciate the NFL broadcasting key events on its website. I think it's very progressive of it--something that the NFL has long been ahead of the curve at. I've never had particularly strong feelings about Favre. I will forever remember watching him play like a man possessed the day after his father died. My former roommate Ian and I were simply in awe. True, non-hyperbole, non-conventionalized, awe. I think sentimentality sets in some age older than I. So watch this now, laugh, crack wise, rolls your eyes, but remember, no matter how frothing some of his supporters were, Brett Favre was a once-in-a-lifetime player.
