I am going to let down my colleagues in the Favre-haters Society, but in the lead of today's SN column, I praise Favre's effort last night.
Oh, I had to watch on mute. And I had to replace my Favre-loathing with schadenfreude for Packers fans (eh: they deserve it, if only for believing in Favre even after it was clear he despised them). But I nodded my head and muttered: "Not bad."
Then I woke up this morning, flushed that out of my system in the column, then went back to the hatin'.
That's not to say that I hate all things Minneapolis -- actually, I'm rooting for the Twins today against the Tigers (even though I suspect that the Tigers have a slightly better chance of giving the Yankees a series -- what can I say... I'm a sucker for Joe Mauer like the rest of you.)
Lots more in the column today, and I've got a big post about ESPN's "30 for 30" documentary series -- which starts tonight -- coming between 11:30 and noon. Check back then.
