Vikings fans drive to Mississippi, meet Favre

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings fans, Vikings players, Brett Favre Updated: July 16, 2010 - 1:42 PM

Judd posted this blog item earlier this week about a group of four Vikings fans who planned to drive to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, this week to say thanks for Brett Favre.

Well, apparently they did that and got a 15-minute conversation with Favre on Friday morning after his workout at Oak Grove High School.

According to this story in the Hattiesburg newspaper, the four fans made the 1,100-mile trip to deliver a thank you card to the Favre 4 Hope Foundation. Favre spent 15 minutes talking to the group after his workout.

"That's always nice," Favre told the paper about the fans trip. "That makes you feel good."
