Favre Gets Rewarded After Big Night

First of all, I thought this video was worth posting. Postgame interviews are usually a borefest -- "we're taking things one game at a time, both teams played hard, blah blah blah." But this was clearly a special moment for Brett Favre, and you could hear him getting emotional. It was a nice interview following an excellent game.

More importantly, he took home some hardware after a Monday Night Football game that set the record for the largest cable audience ever. Favre was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for a performance in which he went 24/31 for 271 yards and three touchdowns. But in case you were hoping that the Vikings would sweep the offensive and defensive awards, you'll be disappointed to learn that Darren Sharper took home the defensive honors. The Mullet got screwed -- 4.5 sacks and total dominance just weren't quite good enough, huh?

On a completely different note, how about a shout-out to the Twins for capping off an incredible two-day stretch of Minnesota sports? Here's hoping they have some magic left over for the playoffs and can put ESPN and the rest of the sports media in the fetal position by knocking off the Yankees. Twinkie Town, of course, has you covered.
