AM 620 WTMJ's HUGE Brett Favre scoop

I'd earlier noted the media frenzy surrounding Brett Favre's jetting into Green Bay on a day when there was a fund-raising lunch on tap at his restaurant for one of Bart Starr's favorite charities and then a Monday night Packers-Falcons kickoff at Lambeau Field.

Where exactly was the jet-setting future Hall of Famer? Would he attend the Monday night game? Was the oft-rumored jersey # 4 retirement ceremony announcement in the works?

I was fortunate enough to hear the AM 620 WTMJ reporter who phoned into the station during the 2:00 p.m. news block after she said she'd actually caught up with Favre.

What did he say when asked what he was doing, the station's news reader asked?

"'I have to go eat first,'" was the answer, she said, as he headed into his restaurant.
