You didn’t really think Brett Favre would go an entire fall without being in front a TV camera, did you?
ESPN has reported that Favre, the omnipresent future Hall-of-Fame QB who now finally appears retired for good, will return to his alma mater, Southern Miss, as a color analyst for the school’s home game against Rice on October 1. It will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Southeast.
“I’m excited to be back at Southern Miss with the Golden Eagles,” Favre told the Hattiesburg American. “I’m not committing to a new career in broadcasting, but just wanted to support Southern Miss and check out the view from the press box. It should be fun, and I hope the fans enjoy it.”
Favre and his family still reside in Hattiesburg, MS, which is home to USM.
It will be interesting to see Favre do some television work, but we are skeptical that it will all about the game. Would you really be surprised if he announced his NFL comeback unexpectedly on live TV?
Heck, would you be surprised if he played in the game somehow?
