Are there athletes that you just love to watch because of the pure joy they show while playing? You know for them it’s not about the money or fame. They just love what they do and would be on that field or court even if no one was watching.
One man that epitomizes that attitude to me is the Green Bay Packers’ QB Brett Favre. Even at the ripe old age of 37, Favre still looks like a kid playing ball on the playground. There’s no doubt when you watch him play that he is having fun. And as the NFL’s only 3-time MVP, it’s obvious that his love for the game has led to some pretty amazing seasons.
Favre’s 17th NFL season will definitely be one to watch as he pursues several NFL records. He only needs 7 touchdown passes to pass Dan Marino as the player with the most career touchdown passes. Only 2 more career wins will place him at the top of the list over John Elway for career wins as a starting quarterback.
