Brett Favre Retirement Coverage: Updates & Special

ESPN will present the latest on the sudden retirement of Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, starting with a special segment at noon ET during SportsCenter’s morning re-airs.

At 1 p.m., ESPN will feature a two-hour SportsCenter Special: Brett Favre Retires hosted by NFL Live’s Trey Wingo, who will be joined in-studio by Mark Schlereth and Mike Golic. Reporters Chris Mortensen and John Clayton will also contribute.

They are actually playing the voicemail that Favre left on Chris Mortensen’s cell phone right now. Too funny. And you know what’s even more funny? Chris Mortensen’s new goatee. Evil Chris Mortensen will break all Brett Favre stories!
