I quit the NFL years ago, but this Sunday I'm going to watch every minute of the NFC championship game. For me, it's all about Brett Favre.
Brett Favre is my kind of player, the epitome of heart, and I've been watching him for the better part of two decades. I became a Favre fan in 1992 and when he led the Packers to a Super Bowl win in 1997, I celebrated like the home team had triumphed. Amazingly, he hasn't missed a single game since '92. He's as durable as he is dominant.
Here are a few entries I've written about Brett Favre over the past seven years.

At 40-years-old, Favre will become the oldest quarterback to start a conference championship game when he takes the field in New Orleans. At 35-years old, I'll be watching my favourite football player of all-time. I'm not ready for this ride to end.
