Favre (Deanna) disses Philly

Wow, you're reputation must not be good when the wife of a player on a team 1,000 miles away takes a shot at you. During a feel-good public appearance, no less.

Deanna Favre, the wife of Green Bay quarterback Brett who has been battling cancer and other family hardships for the past year, was the guest speaker last night at a women's lecture series sponsored by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Here's how she concluded her remarks, as reported by the Journal Sentinel:
In a question-and-answer session after her talk, Favre admitted that the public eye, while intrusive, isn't so bad in Green Bay - even now.

"Most of the time people are really friendly. People say nice things," she said. "It could be worse. We could be in Philly or somewhere."

The trouble is, you can't even rip her due to her recent personal hardships -- breast cancer, burying her younger brother and housing 50 family members in her Mississippi home during Hurricane Katrina.

Can you?
