Old time readers of LFAD know I used to have a Brett Favre Interception Watch located on the right side of the page that was sadly lost with the re-design. So as with most Minnesota fans, I've had a love-hate relationship with Brett Favre. I love that he was a great quarterback on the field and hated the fact he played for the Packers and was such an egotistical drama queen. But I now love the fact that Favre is a Viking.
I love how this just burns Packer fans. I love how they have to choke back 16 years of Favre worship and now say he's washed up or that it's no big deal. I love that Packer fans have to admit what everyone else has said for years: Brett Favre is a diva who cares only for himself. I love the media circus and that KSTP followed Favre's car from the airport to Winter Park from a helicopter. I love that hundreds of rubes stormed Winter Park just to get a glimpse of Brett Favre. I love the fact that is a high-risk/high-reward gambit that will either be a glorious success or a spectacular failure and which ever way it goes it will be a blast to watch. So welcome Brett Favre. Let the spectacle begin.
