Brett Favre was absolutely incredible. He played through injuries his whole career. And then a day of absolute mourning he went out and did something like this? It’s unreal. There was a reason Brett Favre was the most beloved football player in America and the reason for this was the amount of pain and heartbreak he always played through.
