"Funeral 4 Favre" gets major airtime on ESPN

Press-Gazette readers had a field day when WAPL (105.7 FM) announced last week it would be hosting a "Funeral-4-Favre" before Sunday's all-important Green Bay Packers-Minnesota Vikings game.

Well, the news also reached ESPN's radar, with Dana Jacobson of "First Take" interviewing WAPL co-host Len Nelson this morning about the planned festivities.

Check out the below clip for details -- which for all you moaners and groaners, really do sound more lighthearted and fun than morbid or mean-spirited. Either way, we'll certainly be interested to see if the coffin mannequin has Favre's patented gray stubble or whether visitors bring Eggo waffles in lieu of flowers.

The event goes down from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday at Tom, Dick & Harry’s in Ashwaubenon. As Nelson explains in the clip, any proceeds raised during the event will go toward Deanna Favre's Hope Foundation.

C'mon, that's a nice touch, right?
