didn’t realize how much the news media loved and protected Brett Favre until I tried to find a picture of him crying. The only one I could find was from this blog. And this shot is a screen grab.
There are no still images of the press conference.
And OMG, I find myself in the same camp with the looniest of all loons – Laura Ingraham!
UPDATE: Yeah, she’s definitely mocking him. She has a poll on her website asking whether Favre “embarrassed himself” by crying. And her “soundbite of the week” is this: “I hope *sniffle* the fans *snort* appreciate me *sniffle* as much as I appreciate them. *sigh* Brett Favre, crying during his farewell press conference.”
Well now I know I’m way off base. If she thinks he is a pussy, then I have to eat crow and admit he is a man’s man.
