Late Sunday night it was revealed that the Green Bay Packers and their legendary quarterback Brett Favre have a huge announcement scheduled for Monday. It was also revealed that this announcement will have something to do with a potential Hall of Fame induction, something that most believe is a long time coming.
Here’s a small portion of the official release from the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers and Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. issued a media advisory at 7 p.m. on Sunday, relating to a joint announcement regarding former Packers quarterback Brett Favre: “The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. and the Green Bay Packers will make a joint announcement regarding former quarterback Brett Favre Monday, Aug. 4, at 1:30 p.m., in the new Hall of Fame under construction in the Lambeau Field Atrium.”
While they did not come out right in the release and say that the long awaited induction will finally be happening, this all just seems like a formality until all parties can get together and inform that world all at once.
This particular subject was in the news recently, with the speculation being that Favre was weary about returning to Lambeau for the induction ceremony with the fear of getting booed. But this announcement on Monday should put all that talk to rest once and for all.
And of course, here is how you can watch this historic moment play out live.
Date: August 4
Start Time: 1:30 PM ET
Location: Green Bay, WI
Venue: Lambeau Field
