It seems like everyone — analysts, coaches, players, agents — have chimed in on Brett Favre’s future in recent weeks.
Everyone, that is, except for Favre himself.
That ends tonight as Favre is scheduled to appear on the debut of HBO’s “Joe Buck Live,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The show will take place before a live audience in New York. According to a spokesman for the show, the plan is for Favre to be interviewed live on stage, but if that cannot be worked out, then Buck will interview Favre via satellite.
The one-hour show will air Monday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
