Favre to Lewis TD Wins Best Play ESPY

New, comments

Our very own Brett Favre was on hand at the ESPYS last night both as a presenter and an award winner, but don't expect him to come rushing back to football right away.

Favre presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to the family of late Iowa high school football coach Ed Thomas. The popular coach was tragically killed by a former player last year, and the award presentation was definitely one of the most emotional parts of the show. You can watch the presentation on the video playlist here.

Of course, everyone asked Favre whether or not he's coming back, and of course, he gave his typical vague answers. His ankle still doesn't feel good, we'll have to see, blah blah blah...we all know he's coming back and we all know it won't be until around the end of training camp. Let's just move on.

The Gunslingin' Grandpa took home the Best Play ESPY for his incredible last-second toss to Greg Lewis in the back of the endzone against the 49ers in Week 3 last year. Pretty easy pick if you ask me. Just for fun, let's take a look at the awesomeness of that play one more time with Paul Allen's radio call:

Yep, just as I suspected...still awesome. OK now I'm even more fired up for the 2010 season to start--how about next year Favre & Co. take home the Best Team ESPY like the Saints did this year?!
