This looked like a good show, I wish I'd caught it. Here is the article about it from The Onion...

Dan Marino Hosts Hour-Long HBO Special Celebrating Favre's Interceptions | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

NEW YORK—Dan Marino, the former Dolphins quarterback, former multiple NFL all-time record holder, and current co-host of HBO's Inside The NFL, was the host, producer, and head writer of the hour-long HBO special Mr. 278, which aired Monday and commemorates Brett Favre breaking the all-time record for interceptions.

I wonder if at the end of the season he will be commemorating his beloved Dolphins taking an 0 for 16.

That's because Dan Marino is a class act.

Are you being sarcastic? If not I don't see the class in what he said

Part of Marinos statement was....."Join me in saluting Brett Favre for breaking the all-time interception record of 277 set by George Blanda—truly a milestone for the ages," Marino intoned during the opening montage, which featured Favre throwing some of his most memorable picks. "Some say records were made to be broken—personally, I've never believed that—but in any case the career interception mark was believed to be unreachable. It takes a player with an unusual combination of not knowing when to retire, not knowing when to stop trying to rack up the completions, and not knowing when to stop trying to throw touchdowns. And it seems that lucky player is everyone's big hero quarterback, Brett Favre."

By the way "Classy Dan" wasn't too shabby in the pick department either. 242 games / 252 Picks / 17 seasons, Favre also has more carrer passing attempts than Marino or Blanda

Pardon me, but isn't The Onion a satirical publication that isn't serious?

Is it true Marino is cheap and doesn't tip at restaurants?

I heard he gives out Isotoners instead of cash for tips.

At least when he did those Isotoner commercials, he didn't have to worry about the gloves catching his Super Bowl ring when he took them off.
