Given how the last 2 offseasons have played out for Brett Favre and the teams with which he’s been associated, most Vikings fans didn’t anticipate learning what the future held for their team and the legendary QB during his appearance on Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show” Thursday night.
But just because Favre didn’t announce his intentions for 2010 doesn’t mean we didn’t learn anything. After his chat with Leno and actor Matthew McConaughey on the set of “The Tonight Show” we now know the following:
– Favre joked that the “real reason” for the trip to Los Angeles was to take their 10-year-old daughter to a Hannah Montana contest
– The QB described the 2009 season as “Way better than I could’ve dreamed.”
– With a boisterous audience obviously filled with Favre and Vikings fans, Favre said one of the biggest accomplishments for him in 2009 was winning over the majority of Vikings fans after being “hated” for so many years in Minnesota.
– Favre said he watched the just the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl, calling that period great, and that he actually didn’t see the commercial that featured him.
Favre was relaxed with Leno and the two were actually quite funny together. After seeing their season come to an end in such a bitter and heart-breaking manner, perhaps it was good for Vikings fans to see their QB in such a context.
