Favre-mania hits Minneapolis in full force

MINNEAPOLIS — This is what Brett Favre’s arrival in Minnesota has done for preseason football in these parts:

  • Tonight’s preseason game against the Chiefs at the Metrodome is sold out.
  • Four hours before kickoff, dozens of Vikings RVs and buses were in the parking lot with tailgaters grilling food, sipping suds and whooping it up in preparation for the game.
  • Nearly half of those tailgaters were sporting some form of Favre memorabilia.
  • Favre jerseys are on display at souvenir stands inside the stadium.
  • Favre, in a red prctice jersey and Vikings helmet, is on the cover of the game program.
