Brett's life. What we come up with is a five-part series about the wild things. This one has to do with December 22, 2003, the day after his father's fatal heart attack in his father's name was Ervin Brett Favre played a must when Monday night football game against the Oakland Raiders for dealt with the grief and the best way you can imagine played his heavy heart you again is Brett Favre with part three of our five-part series that day of our games.

A point-to-point forever 21 days to Super Bowl by far not even close. The most pressure in the most nervous I've ever been, was no and it was a it had nothing to do about well I will not apply as people were thinking leading. Understandably so, do you think employ employee, but I was so afraid that I would employ one dollar Monday about playing the lights for you now. I will just play even though got a free pass you play we will play correctly would expect extremely reply. What I will even go down that road.

I want to play like I've never played before and the odds of that happening just because I wanted to do that all time but this time more than ever.

So the pressure was enormous. In my experiences when the pressure is almost too big to bear.

It's hard for very hard for you. You know you just can't settle down and everything is moving so fast, which is what was going on that night, but it was like as a game unfolded with each party. It was like this is this is an I've always been on a Christian's sundaes better than others. Some years better than others, but we were born arise when church and as kids we can pay attention you will get weapons and got chewed out. No set the cry room and then yelled through my trials and tribulations of leaving the Lord more times than another time something like most people, but I knew that my based on what I just told you there's no way that was a sign out views this several times. I realize at the time, but at halftime I mean I knew statistically that this is was unbelievable but I want to win the game but I was well aware of like that should make us this crazy but then again it didn't dawn on me that it didn't dawn on me that year. It didn't column a year later, only years later that you know enough spoke to the group at Murfreesboro.

This high school.

If there is a Christian group last year I spoke at liberty University this year are actually October think talk about. They are sitting away, but I'll start really asking questions in the audience ascended the ever find yourself cited. I will sign George give me a side show yourself hard to make this move or whatever.

All of a sudden, this billboard says you know I am real or you give me a sign that I said it never works out that way right you forget about it all and they maybe do it again. I said I was that happened in the innocent. One day I realized that the sign is how I played you keep in mind that I played that at halftime I had already if that game with the vendor that it would be the best game in my history. Statistically speaking, is just 1/2 now keep in mind that my father just died. I never studied is when I've got the news that he had died. I my mind was elsewhere and we needed to win this game and I needed to play and play well, but not in the play that well and I prayed and prayed and prayed Lord, I want one of my father. I will play well. I want to just play. I want to know if I was really specific but I think he knew what I was plastic that's a sign that God is real. It was it some more.

Angel can fly nearly dropped of football Angels member place the balls in places but thought to to test out the four touchdowns of halftime which is not not unheard of to the touchdown passes works are the best passes of a referral for people watching Bob would know that that have to know why Angolan precision had to be perfect when you when you're not running out of pocket you have run out run out of pocket so was Tracy have to turn to make it over the shoulder throw guy in the back on then. So that has to drop only one spot in India. Then there was two more that were just totally opposite Oakland gynecologist diseases are guys and dating come close to position like this fell down the event that the game is is important for a lot of reasons. At the time we needed to win the game to continue playoff hopes. But when I came back from the funeral for sure. My life easier for everyone to that's what people talk about, I know many people that are good at funerals wakes particularly not very good.

In fact, I like to if I go to one and my wife's aunt passed away about a month and 1/2 ago family were real close with her but my my way of handling those situations be in that environment is to make light of the situation. Talk about stories that made us laugh like down, never have been so that play bad coming back home with Betty Morse. No, what I know. That said, baby. I need you play. You did your best battle. I want here.

I want to come home and be able celebrate and so I'm thankful that we were able to kind of enjoy Joyce about listening to Brett Favre talking about his performance on December 22, 2003, the day after his father Ervin suffered a fatal heart attack and died in Brett that night was 22 for 3399 yards, four touchdowns and 3 yards shy of his best game ever in the biggest night of his life.
