Hovan still popping off By Laura Veras Marran Date: Aug 1, 2003
Minnesota defensive tackle Chris Hovan arrived at Vikings' training camp in Mankato, Minn., this week with a few new additions: two new tattoos and a Brett Favre jersey in his locker. For a guy who was relatively unknown until he tried to mix it up with Favre, Hovan sure had a lot to say to reporters.
â€œA lot of people are going to say bad things about me, but I'll take an insult from a Hall of Famer anytime,â€ Hovan said, referring to his shouting match with Favre last during the Packers victory over the Vikings last November. â€œI don't know, he might be going through a mid-life crisis or something,â€ Hovan said of Favre. Hovan hung a Favre jersey in his cubicle in the Vikings practice facility.
â€œI think it's a great motivational tool,â€ Hovan said of the No. 4 jersey. â€œHe's a Hall of Famer. Look at me, man, I've got long hair and tattoos, but I love me and that's all that matters.â€
As for Favre, don't expect to see Hovan's jersey anywhere near the Packers' lockerrom. Favre won't be looking to the Vikings defense line for any motivation.
â€œI didn't put up anything in my house, my wife wouldn't let me,â€ Favre joked. â€œLike I said before, Hovan's a great player, I'd love to have him on my team, but he needs to get a life and have some kids and get a life outside of football.
Five, six years from now he'll say 'What an idiot I was,'â€ Favre said.
Hovan would be hard-pressed to disagree.
â€œThe guy calls me an idiot â€“ yeah, I'm an idiot,â€ Hovan said. â€œI don't need Brett Favre to tell me that.â€
Questions??? I have some... 1. Has Hovan actually sacked Favre? Once? I wouldn't know... 2. If those referee calls went your way and you won both games last year - you would be a 500 team and the Packers would be 10-6. So what? Your still not even in the playoffs (waiting for Falcons comments...) 3. Why do you refer to the Packers and Packers fans as "faggots" when purple stands for gay pride and Viking fans are logging into a site called purplepride.org?tj
