Greg Bishop had an interesting piece on Brett Favre this week, where Favre and those who know him give kind of a running commentary on Favre’s career.
Kind of like Legs McNeil’s Please Kill Me or The Other Hollywood (only much shorter and not about music or porn).
The best — and possibly most revealing — part of it is this. Favre thought he’d be cheered when he returned to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. If you recall that first game, he was roundly and overwhelmingly booed.
“Did I really expect the fans to cheer for me when I came back? I don’t know. I mean, it would have been nice. But I’m not surprised. I went to a big rival. I felt like it would be just as easy to get back into their good graces with more positive attention that came from not only me saying the right things but the Packer organization, too. You just have to put all that to rest and move forward. Next thing you know, people have forgotten about it.”
It would have been nice.
Kind of like if you didn’t go play for the Vikings, Brett?
That would have been fucking nice!
This comment perfectly illustrates Brett’s continuing ignorance of the whole situation and his belief that he was bigger than the Packers.
