Giving Favre The Benefit Of The Doubt
You may love him for what he did in Green Bay, or hate him for how he left the Packers. And, if you're like me, stuff comes up in the back of your throat each and every time you see Brett Favre wearing purple and sporting a horn on the side of his helmet.
Think what you will of Favre, but you have to love a guy who did what he and wife Deanna did last week for a Waukesha County five-year old with a terminal brain tumor. If you didn't hear, they spent a couple of hours Friday with the boy, visiting with he and his family at the kid's home. Favre then wore a towel with a backwards "4" on it, Favre saying that the tumor is why the child writes his numbers that way.
Favre didn't make the trip public--his relatives did, spilling the beans to ESPN's Ed Werder before Monday night's loss to the Bears. Favre, they said, didn't want the pub but the family told Werder they wanted the world to know.
Say what you will about the guy, but this was a totally class move.
