So long Favre
Favre has a few connections to Shreveport. He played here in the Independence Bowl for Southern Mississippi.
Actually, LSU fans should hold a bit of a grudge against Favre. He not only put USM on the map (unless you're counting Ray Guy) but he also made Curley Hallman a hot coach commodity.
And Favre shared part of his time in Green Bay with Calvary coach Doug Pederson who was Favre's backup.
Area Cowboys fans fondly remember beating Favre in an NFC title game.
But all football fans should remember for the way he played the game -- taking chances and playing with a swagger.
