Don't Bet Against Her
11/20/2007 7:47 pm
My wife is reading the book "Don't Bet Against Me!" by Deanna Favre. From what she tells me, it is a good read. A lot of the story is about Brett Favre, which makes sense considering she's married to the guy. Anyway, among the things I found out about Brett is that if he hadn't been a professional football player he probably would have ended up being a special education teacher. I found that one of the most interesting things and felt inclined to bring it up on this site in light of the Viking population not being big fans of the media painting Brett in the "do no wrong" light. Turns out, he's apparently as much of a kindhearted guy in the "everyone but Brett Favre kicks puppies for fun" kind of way as the media portays him to be. (of course it is his wife writing it, so they're is an obvious tendancy for bias.) However, she does not tip-toe around the stories of Brett's alcohol and pain-killer addictions.
But the real story is about Deanna. I suggest giving it a read (it is a quick read by the way). In all truthfulness, Deanna's story is an inspiration to anyone who has suffered through breast cancer or for anyone who has ever known anyone going through the same thing. And as sick as we all are of hearing about all the tragedies surrounding the life of Brett Favre, it really is amazing hearing from the primary source how they dealt with everything that came their way.

The Brett and Deanna Favre stories are inspiring regardless of your team of choice. They have overcome their issues with class and dignity- all in the limelight.
It's good to have people like the Favres get media attention because it gets us off of the bad things. Pacman Jones, Tank Johnson, Micheal Vick, etc.
More Favre please. And I'll even except reports on how Moss and TO have gotten their games together. It's good for the kids, and I mean that.
