Brett Favre took the ice bucket challenge over the weekend and it was pretty terrific.

For one thing, the water actually looked icy (even with the insulation provided by his beard) and his response seemed genuine, along with the most Favre-like proclamation ever: “A little chilly.”

He promptly passed the challenge along to the odd trio of “Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Matt Hasselbeck.”
