I agree. Favre knew he still had virtually an entire game to play and he began to get ready for the Packers next possession.
I'll confess that I kind of liked Ripken's going around the field after he set the consecutive games streak, and at the time I even enjoyed the ceremonies when McGwire hit no. 62 in 1998 with the Maris family in attendance (subsequent events have changed my perspective of the latter event), but I agree with MWM-these stop the game ceremonies are getting old.
Actually, there is an earlier "stop-the-game" ceremony that I enjoyed at the time, although watching it now is sad: The September 1985 ceremony when Pete Rose hit 4192.
