CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE BRETT FAVRE LOVER'S SOUL. Just one day after losing his father, Irvin Favre, to a heart attack and fatal car crash, Brett Favre took the field for a Monday Night Football game against the Oakland Raiders. Even with the Green Bay Packers clinging to a slim chance for a playoff spot, his teammates and his adopted city didn't expect Brett to suit up. But what happened in the Oakland twilight on December 22, 2003 is the stuff of NFL legend. "I knew that my dad would have wanted me to play," he said after throwing for just under 400 yards and four touchdowns to rout the Raiders. "I love him so much, and I love this game. It meant a great deal to me, to my dad, and to my family, and I didn't expect this kind of performance. But I know he was watching." In FAVRE, Brett Favre talks about the things that matter to him most-his family, his team, and the game of football. He talks about the games that sealed his reputation as one of the greatest football players in history, about playing through pain and overcoming adversity, about the people he calls family, both on and off the field. Those who know him best share their stories about the player with a heart as big as his gunslinger's arm. FAVRE is a dazzling tribute to the roller-coaster football life of Brett Favre, with personal family photos and remembrances, stunning four-color action shots, career highlight footage and inspiring stories of a lifelong love affair with the all-American game.
