Today's musical selection is dedicated to the Packers fans and the local media that treated yesterday's appearance by Brett Favre in Green Bay as a cross between the Papal visit that Mayor Jim Schmitt still believes is going to happen and fangirl-ing over a tour stop by One Direction.
It started yesterday morning on Twitter with BREAKING NEWS!!!! BRETT FAVRE IS COMING TO GREEN BAY FOR MONDAY NIGHT'S GAME AGAINST ATLANTA!!!!
That was followed by links to air traffic control tracking websites where you could follow the progress of Favre's chartered jet in real time!!
The TV stations sent camera crews and reporters to Austin Straubel Airport to film the plane as it landed and to provide video the second Brett stepped off the plane!!
"Lambeau Cam" was turned 180-degrees so that we could get live, streaming coverage of the limo arriving at Brett Favre's Steakhouse!!
Speaking of Mayor Schmitt, he was at the Steakhouse--with his cheesehead on--to officially welcome Brett back to Green Bay!!
Sports talk radio was focused on what type of distraction Brett's return to Green Bay might have on the Packers tonight?!
Reporters wondered what kind of reception will Brett get if his picture is shown on the Jumbotron? Will the fans cheer? Will they boo? Will Aaron Rodgers be jealous or be thrown off of his game?
It was getting so out of hand that the Packers had to issue a statement mid-afternoon saying Favre was not going to be in attendance for the game--and that no ceremony of any kind was planned that night!!
And then the cameras returned to Austin Straubel to film the plane taking off again--and the air traffic control tracker site was back up just to make sure that Brett didn't change his mind (he's been known to do that) and that the jet didn't turn back around toward Green Bay!!
And finally, all of the evening newscasts led off with the Brett was back stories--including one reporter using the terms exciting, excited and excitement seven time in the space of one minute!!
Like Elsa says ,people: Let it Go.
