The Most Beautiful Thing I've Ever Seen
That sound you hear is the entire state of Wisconsin both laughing uncontrollably and breathing a huge sigh of relief at the same time.
You would think after all this time, all the mistakes, all the stupid plays, and all the bad decisions, that Brett Favre would have finally learned his lesson and would just do the smart thing to win the game, but no. His gargantuan ego and unquenchable thirst for personal success and praise were too much for him to overcome and he had to unleash one more ill-timed, against-his-body throw to a stationary receiver.
Does it change the fact that Green Bay lost in a way that could be succeeded only by Favre's pick in '07 against the Giants? No, of course not. But is it funny as shit to watch and bask in the ole gunslinger's failure and idiocy one more time, especially in a situation that cost him the shot at the Super Bowl he so desperately craved? You bet your fucking ass.
Thanks, Brett. I knew you wouldn't let us Packer fans down. And that fact that I had to wait 4 and a half months for it to happen actually makes it better.
P.S.- If I could take that look on his face at the end of the video and make a meal out of it, I would eat that meal every day, 3 times a day for the rest of my fucking life.
