Ready for a large contingent of Brett Favre’s family to be in town for the game at Lambeau Field if he ends up playing for the Vikings? You better be, as the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that Favre’s family and friends have booked 25 to 30 rooms at the Midway Motor Lodge near Lambeau for the weekend of the November 1st Vikings game at Green Bay.
The quarterback’s family and friends often stayed at the hotel during Favre’s final years with the Packers, Midway manager Doug Warpinski told the newspaper. Warpinski declined comment to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Favre retired in February for the second time, blaming a partially torn biceps tendon for his poor play for the Jets. The three-time NFL MVP reportedly had surgery on his right shoulder in May.
The Vikings have expressed interest in bringing him back for a 19th season.
