Watch Brett Favre’s Full Unscripted Hall of Fame Speech (Video)

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL’s favorite gunslinger got his final assignment, joining a star-studded roster in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night.

Favre saved his most heartfelt words for his father. Favre took guest back to the day after his dad, Irvin, died in December 2003, a day the Green Bay Packers quarterback threw for 399 yards and four touchdowns in a memorable win over the Oakland Raiders.

“On our flight back (after the game), it was a long flight, as you can imagine,” Farve said. “There was a lot of emotions. We just won the game and it was probably the best game I’ve ever played, but that didn’t really matter at that point. And we laughed, we cried, we tried to sleep. … My father was short on praise and long on tough love. If he were ever to praise me, it was always ‘you can do better.’ He was always pushing me to be better. That was OK. Never did I hear him say, ‘Son, you’ve arrived. You’re the best. That was awesome. Great game.’ It was always, ‘Yeah, but.’

“Deanna says to me on the plane, you know your dad said to me he had hoped or could not wait for the day that you’re inducted into the Hall of Fame so he could introduce you.

“Up until that moment, I had never thought about the Hall of Fame. I mean no disrespect to the Hall of Fame, I had dreamed of playing in the NFL, believe me, way more than I thought about my school work … but I never thought of the Hall of Fame until that moment. So a new goal had entered my mind, then and there. And I said to myself: I will make it to the Hall of Fame.”
