"FAVRE" has arrived
Introducing our new show at Go Long. The Green Bay Packers legend will share war stories, follow the 2023 NFL season and tackle all issues in football as only he can. (You can hang out with us, too.)
The icon needs no introduction. I’m thrilled to share that this 2023 NFL season, Go Long is welcoming the incomparable, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre on for a new show.
“FAVRE” promises to be an experience that’s the first of its kind.
For an hour-plus, the three-time MVP will relive untold war stories from his surreal 20-year NFL career. There was never a Brett Favre before he took over ‘92 and there will never be another. He’ll offer his insight and analysis on all of the current NFL action. This is a transformative year for the franchise he put back on the map. You’ll get Favre’s perspective on Jordan Love and the new Green Bay Packers.
And — always — we will take on big-picture issues in pro football. Concussions. Painkillers. The beauty and scars of the sport will be revealed in their entirety through the quarterback who bared his soul.
Episodes are exclusive to Go Long subscribers at GoLongTD.com:
Everyone could see part of themselves in Favre.
His passion for the sport was obviously palpable.
So, here’s where we’ll look to make this show unlike any other: VIP Subscribers at Go Long are welcome to join for our live recordings and ask Favre anything you’d like. Once we’ve finished up our hourlong conversation, the floor is yours.
Of course, you’ll be alerted via email on dates/times for all live recordings so you can set your schedule. VIP subscribers will also receive a Go Long sweatshirt (hoodie or crew) and a copy of my book, “The Blood and Guts: How Tight Ends Save Football.” Upon upgrading, simply email your size and mailing info to email@example.com.
All subscribers will be able to watch and listen to “FAVRE” here at Go Long and, if you prefer, within private feeds on Apple, Spotify, wherever you pod. You’ll just need to link up your email to the account.
As detailed this week, the mission of Go Long is to deliver football in the raw. Through 321 consecutive starts, that was Favre. He was one of you. He brought all of America along with him. You were with the QB when he hoisted his helmet up high after a Super Bowl touchdown strike to Andre Rison. You were with the QB when he played one day after his father died. You were with him through a magical ‘07 and… everything that followed. Yes, he became a Viking. Yes, he sought revenge. I first got to know Favre in 2014 when I covered the Packers at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. We connected at his home for this feature.
That following season, it also probably felt like you were with the quarterback when he made amends with the Packers and had his No. 4 retired.
Now, you can listen, watch or even ask The Gunslinger anything you’d like.
We recorded Episode 1 already. Expect to see that go live shortly.
One more thing: In the spirit of Go Long, “FAVRE” is completely independent. This show is 100 percent fueled by you. No ads, no sponsors. Only our readers.
Thank you, everyone.
