How did we miss this? How, we ask? Just when you thought all the love for Brett Favre was done, Peter King makes the commencement speech at his alma mater, Ohio University. It happened earlier this month. He mentioned the usual suspects: Jimmy Johnson, Peyton Manning, Bob Costas, Dick Ebersol, Mike Tomlin, AND then, AND then ... you guessed it: Brett Favre. I'd love to know if he cried. I looked on You Tube, hoping to find the Ohio U. commencement speech, but no luck. I am sure it is out there. Post it, people. Post it.
Peter, you are a great reporter. Just let it go.
