Brett Favre decided to bring out a very special t-shirt to Sunday morning’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers.
In celebration of Brady making his home debut with his new team, Favre opted to show his support by taking in the game in person at Raymond James Stadium.
Here is what he wore for the occasion:

Take a closer look at that t-shirt:
The 50-year-old has been a staunch Brady supporter for some time now.
This past week, Favre even defended him from the Week 1 criticism that Bucs head coach Bruce Arians dished out following a two-interception showing versus the New Orleans Saints.

“I think the last person you want to call out after the first game of the year is Tom Brady,” he said.
“Now maybe they had a mutual truce going into the game, going into the season, ‘Hey, I’m going to be hard on you. I want the guys to know we’re going to treat you the same even though technically I’m not, so are you OK with it?’
“If they have that truce, great. If not, I think you are barking up the wrong tree. Dissension could easily enter quickly.”

Arians, for his part, didn’t put much stock into what Favre said.
“Tom and I are fine,” he told the media this week.
“I don’t really care what other people think. So it’s just what he and I think. We left the stadium fine. We showed up today fine. There ain’t nothin’ to talk about.”
A tough situation all around. https://t.co/R0ufvolXKE

Favre knows exactly what it feels like to switch teams late in your career, and he no doubt has has a soft spot for Brady that very reason.
Will Favre become a permanent fixture at Tampa Bay games this year, cheering Brady on like a proud dad all season long?
Time will tell.
