I've been purposely trying to avoid everything Brett Favre but I can't seem to escape it. I said before that ESPN hasn't really had a choice to beat this story to death in the midst of a slow Summer, but they're doing yet another live Sports Center based today on Favre and Favre alone. If you're near a TV around 12:30, you might want to avoid ESPN....
ESPN will present a SportsCenter special today at 12:30 p .m. ET featuring live coverage of Brett Favre’s arrival at Green Bay Packers camp for a physical examination and a conditioning test all players must pass before they are placed on the 80-man active roster.Just wanted you to know in case you either A) Wanted to watch the "Brett Favre Weigh-in" or B) Wanted to avoid it entirely. I also want to say that I truly enjoy Wendi Nix on reports, but even she can tell she's worn out her welcome in Green Bay. You might want to get a few people into the rotation because we all know you're not leaving anytime soon.
Co-hosts Chris McKendry and Robert Flores will be joined by Mike Golic and Marcellus Wiley for the one-hour special, with Ed Werder and Wendi Nix reporting from Green Bay.
Beyond coverage of Favre’s return to camp, McKendry and Flores will also present other breaking news in the world of sports, as they will do from noon-3 p.m. when SportsCenter goes live weekday mornings starting Monday, Aug. 11. Hannah Storm and Josh Elliott will anchor the 9 a.m.-noon portion of the new six-hour block of live weekday SportsCenters preceding McKendry and Flores.
