Get Away From Me Rachel Nichols!

If there's any people to feel empathy toward during this whole Brett Favre mess, it probably should be the army of ESPN reporters who've been obsessively covering it with the intensity of a presidential election. This morning, Chris Mortensen, phoned in his "Favre to Bucs" report and sounded like a man who'd just came off a week-long Johnnie Walker bender after a divorce. That's why these photos from the Green Bay Press Gazette of Favre huffily leaving Lambeau yesterday were a little amusing.

ESPN's red-headed spitfire Rachel Nichols is in four of them, dutifully following Favre from his post-McCarthy meeting exit up until he steps inside his red Escalade. Not seen in the photo gallery? Nichols throwing herself on the hood of the car and John Clayton popping up in Favre's backseat as he drives away.
