Twenty years ago today, the legend of Brett Favre was born in Green Bay. It’s funny how your mind forgets major details – like how long that drive was…Sterling’s injury…etc.
In the Vitrano home, our focus was squarely on the Milwaukee Brewers’ division chase, so while I recall watching and cheering, I was most concerned with how the Toronto Blue Jays were performing that afternoon – the Crew trailed the Jays by 4.5 games.
Check out at the 4:20 mark as the camera keys in on Holmgren trying to regroup (there was :13 still left on the clock), and Favre suddenly pops in the picture, freaking out! For all that has transpired, all the hard feelings, this is why we loved the guy.
UPDATE: We had a chance to catch up with both Ty Detmer (literally chewing his nails at the 1:33 mark) and Kitrick Taylor on today's show. If you missed it, hear the podcasts HERE
