The Orlando Sentinel set up shop at ESPN The Weekend over the past two days, and the paper ended up scoring an interview with who could be ESPN's newest analyst. That person is Brett Lorenzo Favre, and the one thing Favre isn't lacking when it comes to the TV game is confidence....
Orlando Sentinel: Warren Sapp grew up a few miles from here. He parlayed a great football career into a great TV career. Even danced on TV. There's speculation that you're here for ESPN The Weekend because you're headed for a studio job there. What's next for you?I guess confidence is a good thing when it comes to live television, but I think it might be harder than Brett thinks. I guess we'll find out in a month or so.
Brett Favre: I have no idea. I've heard the same rumors. To be totally honest with you, I've had people ask me about TV and ask me about coaching. I think I'd be a good coach, but I don't want to spend the time. I think I'd be pretty decent on TV. Would I look good in a suit and tie in a formal setting? I don't think that's appropriate for me. I don't. I think people would say, "That doesn't seem right." But I won't know unless I try ... I'm willing to listen.
