When he announced his retirement last week, Brett Favre broke down in tears. This has a ridiculous blond from Fox (Laura Ingraham) questioning him.
Said Ingraham "Even these big hulky, strong impressive men today are in a situation where they break down blubbering for like 20 minutes at a retirement news conference. And women overwhelmingly calling into my show, "we really like Brett Favre but enough with the waterworks, I mean the sobs they never stopped." she is running a poll on her website asking "Did Brett Favre embarass himself by crying at his press conference?"
Personally I thought it was endearing. He was with the Packers all those years. They were like family to him and they meant a lot to him. Who cares if he gets emotional at a news conference. It makes him no less of a man IMO. What say you?
