You've missed Brett Favre so much. And finally, he's returning. Sort of...
Next Saturday, October 1st, Favre will serve as the color commentator for the CSS (Comcast Sports Southeast) broadcast of the Rice-Southern Miss (his alma mater) game:
CSS, the regional sports channel focused on sports throughout the South, has announced that former Southern Miss and future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre will serve as color analyst for its live coverage of the Rice at Southern Miss game on Saturday, October 1 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
"I'm excited to be back at Southern Miss with the Golden Eagles," said Favre, who played quarterback for the team from 1987-1990. He added, "I'm not committing to a new career in broadcasting, but just wanted to support Southern Miss and check out the view from the press box. It should be fun and I hope the fans enjoy it."
"CSS is thrilled to have Brett share his knowledge and insight as color analyst", says General Manager Mark Fuhrman. "We've had a great relationship with Conference USA for many years and I know our viewers will enjoy hearing Brett's perspective on the game."
Joining Favre on the broadcast will be play-by-play announcer Mike Morgan. (You may remember him from last night.)
Unfortunately, since CSS is a regional sports channel, not all of us will get to hear Favre's thoughts on denim and sexting.
In all seriousness, if Favre does a solid job as an analyst, you know that the Worldwide Leader will do everything possible to land him. But, I'm sure they've been trying to do that anyway.
