    Just to show how 'big' the NFL or Favre is here, Sports Tonight (a late night sports news half hour segment) has a small newscast of Brett Favre's trade to the NY Jets. It's kind of funny because I don't recall any news about him retiring being shown, which I thought they might have shown.

    We'd probably have about 5 segments in total about the NFL, ALL YEAR. And 3 of those are leading up to, during, and after the Superbowl. This channel (Channel 10) has picked up the Superbowl and is starting to broadcast NFL games on the HD channel starting this season, so the NFL is starting to gain some nice exposure here. Just thought I'd share.

    "Record breaking QB Brett Favre will line up for the NY Jets, ending a 16 year career for the Green Bay Packers, upsetting their famously patriotic fans, but the 3 time MVP says fans will survive. [Short excerpt from Favre interview]. The Jets first game is against the Packers... only kidding. It's against Miami on September 7th."
