Favre after the game
Great story by Gene Wojciechowski at ESPN on Favre:
At a Monday afternoon team chapel service at the Vikings' downtown hotel, Favre nearly prayed himself into exhaustion. Kickoff was 4½ hours away and he was already a gooey mess.
"I said, 'Man, I'm losing it,'" said Favre.
It got worse. He would later admit he was as nervous as he had ever been before a game. That includes Super Bowls.
"I felt a lot like I did when my dad passed away,'' he said...
"I don't know how to explain it,'' Favre said. "It felt right, but yet, I guess I never thought I'd be in that situation prior to a game. And this is going back, but now it seems right.''
"I hope the Packer fans know how I feel about them,'' he said of the Cheeseheads who supported him for years.
That's Favre. Leaving everything out on the field! Favre always says this--"It's a lot of fun. It never gets old, even if I do."
You gotta love that!
