Earlier Monday, a report came out that Brett Favre apologized to his teammates for the allegations relating to the 'racy' pictures he allegedly sent to Jenn Sterger (which are not-quite-worth-$75,000), which were first shown on Deadspin.

Michelle Tafoya reported on Sportscenter that Favre began crying while giving his apology speech to his team.

"Brett Favre actually broke down in tears and was very emotional, saying, 'I'm sorry to have been a distraction,'" Tafoya said.

She received that information from Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell, who, you'll recall is one of Favre's good friends and also one of the teammates that Brad Childress sent to Hattiesburg to retrieve him for the 2010 season.

Longwell also told Tafoya that Favre told his Vikings teammates that "I need you guys to carry me tonight" because "I don't know what's going to happen."

Reading into Favre's emotional state of being isn't a fair move -- there's one thing we do know, though, and that is when Favre happens to land on primetime football during an emotional state, he typically performs pretty well.

It's like crying wolf.  I think it's very difficult to think Favre is sincere.  He's crying because he was busted and it will taint his legacy.  What an embarrassing situation this is.  Here's a guy who was once a hero figure, reduced to crying because a photo of his dingus is on the internet.  I can't remember someone who has made himself look worse, even Tiger Woods.  There are still people who think Woods is 'the man'.  I doubt if anyone thinks the same of Favre.

Considering his age I  think he probably  confused his apology speech with his annual retirement speech (which requires tears).  On the serious side, I believe it is common for  divas to cry when under pressure. They need people to feel sorry for them so no one will look to closely at what they do.  I'll be so  happy when we can watch and follow football without our diva.Cry

Brett's crocodile tears

Aren't we tired of this yet?  "I'm so sad."  "I'm so happy."  "I feel terrible."  And I thought Terrell Owens was bad.
