CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?
I'M LIVING A NIGHTMARE
First of all, I love my job. But if you think it's all peaches and cream, or that I only talk a few minutes a day....here's an example of chasing the Favre story, Monday version.
7:15am Arrive at Lambeau Field to see if Brett Favre arrives early.
9am Still no sign of Brett Favre, consider taking a nap.
9:30am ESPN and St. Louis want phone interviews, figure I'm not doing anything else.
10am Realize Brett might come in the loading dock area.
Noon Live shots for Noon and 12:30 shows.
12:35pm Find out Favre's already in the building.
Afternoon Favre ducks in and out of Lambeau in an SUV with tinted windows.
4, 5 and 6...More Lives, Favre starts talking to Mike McCarthy around 6pm.
7pm Still talking
8pm Staking out Favre's car, he's still talking
8:50pm Favre still talking, Packers cancel press conference
10pm More lives saying no presser
11pm Watch McCarthy and Favre's SUV's move inside Lambeau
11:25pm Favre waves, McCarthy looks stern as the two leave separately...and no one stops to talk after 5 1/2 hours of talking
After this 16 hour day, I get to go back for more tomorrow? Great!
