Brett Favre's career ended in purple and gold, but on Saturday night, the legendary quarterback made his way back to Lambeau Field to be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame by a welcoming crowd despite they way they parted.
The Packers and Favre endured a bitter break up in 2008, but Favre was welcomed into the team's hall of fame, addressing a packed house of 67,000 fans at Lambeau who watched his induction stadium video boards. They apparently weren't too upset about the summer of 2008 when Favre unretired, was traded to the New York Jets, and then proceeded to play 2 seasons for the Minnesota Vikings. When he emerged onto the field, fans even screamed "MVP!" for a couple minutes.
"I don't have the words to express the feeling of coming out of that tunnel," he told the crowd.
In his 16 seasons with the Packers, Favre played in two Super Bowls and won one of them. The club will hold a separate event on Thanksgiving night for Favre when his name and No. 4 will go up inside the stadium.
