NYC mayor welcomes, presents gifts to 'Jet' Favre

So Brett Favre was in New York for a press appearance that included mayor Michael Bloomberg.

There were gifts and here's what Bloomberg gave the Jets' new quarterback:

* Cheescakes from Junior's Cheesecakes.

* A mass transit MetroCard with $4 in fares on it (for Favre's jersey number).

* A Broadway street sign.

* A copy of the mayor's book, Bloomberg by Bloomberg.

* And a key ring with the promise of the key to the city if the Jets win the Super Bowl.

However, Favre knows enough not to be swept up by the hero's welcome.

"The pressure is just building," he said. "The attention I've gotten since I've been here has been overwhelming. The bottom line, as we all know, is to win games. That's what I'm here to do."
