Favre: Not Just a Jock

A very interesting quote from Brett, relayed by Wiggy.

When Sports Illustrated asked Brett to recount his favorite football memory, he seemed to channel Walker Percy, or Job: "If I were to make a list, I would include the interceptions, the sacks, the really painful losses. Those times when I've been down, when I've been kicked around, I hold on to those. In a way those are the best times I've ever had, because that's when I've found out who I am. And what I want to be."

Walker Percy? Yah, and Flannery O'Connor.
