Brett Favre's Retirement Speech

Thursday, March 06, 2008

As a Non-Packers Fan it was tough for me to understand how tough this was for people of Wisconsin, but I think I kind of understand now. Brett Favre is finishing up his teary retirement speech and it's pretty tough to watch without getting choked up yourself. I'll have the video up in a few if you missed it.

"No regrets. I played the game one way. The only way I knew how."

I teared up. Ive said in a previous post how hard this was on all Packer fans. The guy played his heart out every game, and to see it end is just terrible. He may not be one of the top 5 QB's ever, but in terms of what he meant to an NFL Franchise and its Fan Base, he will forever be the best.

However, i am glad this is over. I dont know how much more i can watch of Favre highlights without getting more upset. All i want now is for Erin Andrews to interview him in one of those Bikini Girl outfits.

He played the only way he knew Rex Grossman with a good reputation.

After moving away from the microphone, he immediately took two vicodin.

I turned it off about five minutes in, not because I felt uncomfortable watching a grown man cry(hell, I've already cried myself once today; long story..), but because I'm all Favre'd out.

Amen to that. Too bad he's one of a kind. Favre is the Cal Ripken of the NFL. He will have a special place in Canton.

As Bill Cunningham would say, Brett I consider you to be a GREAT AMERICAN!!

That's not entirely fair, gmoney. Yes, he took some reckless gambles ... but they worked more often than not (something that definitely can't be said for Grossman), and for every atrocious game he had two or three amazing ones and several good ones. (And this is coming from a diehard Vikings fan.)

Not just tough for Wisconsin, but for die hard Packer fans everywhere. He was as sad to leave us as we are to lose him. What a classy guy.
