NBC’s Brett Favre at Lambeau Day Is Fake News
We all miss sports. You miss sports. I miss sports. NBC is trying to make it easier for us. They will have football games all week. That is music to some people’s ears. Honestly, it is music to my ears. I’ve been streaming so much television and movies and stayed away from sports for the most part. I mentioned this on a podcast earlier this week about how old sports don’t do it for me. But you put football in front of my face, I want to watch it. NBCSN does have Brett Favre at Lambeau Day but it’s not what you think. That does sound great but if you look at the games, it is not all roses.
GAME TIME (ET) NETWORK
Minnesota vs. Green Bay (Week 7, 2010) 7 p.m. NBCSN
Chicago vs. Green Bay (Thanksgiving night, Week 12, 2015) 9:30 p.m.
The only good thing about the games that NBC is showing is the Packers won that game in 2010. Vikings’ wheels hadn’t fallen off yet and that game was an absolute classic. If I end up watching, I’ll probably have my heart in my throat in the final drive. There is not a chance in hell I’ll watch the second game though. It is Favre retirement night and Packers’ inexplicability lost this game. They played terribly in that game with awful Thanksgiving weather. No thanks. Watching Favre is always fun, but watching Favre in a Vikings jersey is never good. I would like to forget those two years never happened.
Going through the rest of NBC’s schedule, there is a silver lining. On Saturday night, NBC is showing Packers-Saints in 2011 where Green Bay won in the last second. That is worth your time. The game goes back and forth and is electric. I remember that game well. NBC does finish with the Packers-Patriots Matt Flynn at the end of April, which is a fun game because no one gave the Packers a shot but then I have to get all mad again that an offensive lineman nearly scored a touchdown.
