LAST GAME

IT’S BEEN A BONUS TO WATCH BRETT FAVRE PLAY ONE LAST TIME AT THE HOLY LAND, LAMBEAU FIELD, IN GREEN BAY.

I’VE ALWAYS SAID THAT I’M NOT A FOOTBALL FAN, BUT I AM A GREEN BAY PACKER FAN. THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, I’VE HAD TO ADD THAT I’M ALSO A BRETT FAVRE FAN.

MY MEMORIES OF CHEERING THE PACK GO BACK TO NUMBER 66 (RAY NITCHSKI) AND NUMBER 15 (BART STARR).  WE’D LAY ON THE LIVING ROOM FLOOR AND WATCH ON BLACK AND WHITE TV, WISC CHANNEL 3 MADISON TV WITH THE “OD”.

MY MEMORIES OF BRETT FAVRE GO BACK TO HIS FIRST COMPLETED PASS TO HIMSELF, AND LOT’S SUNDAY AFTERNOONS WATCHING THE GAME WITH MY OWN SON AFTER BRUNCH AT THE SUPPER CLUB.

INSTEAD OF THE TRADITIONAL SPIRIT MOUNTAIN RUN, WE ORGANIZED A TAILGATE PARTY ON THE PATIO AND WATCHED THE GAME OUTSIDE.

I COULDN’T LOSE, EITHER THE PACKERS OR BRETT FAVRE HAD TO WIN, AND I HAD TO SMILE AS BRETT SUCCESFULLY COMPLETED THREE PASSES TO THE GREEN AND GOLD. I GUESS IN FOOTBALL LINGO THOSE WOULD BE INTERCEPTIONS.

THE PACK WON (I AM A PACKER FAN), BUT DAMN….BRETT DIDN’T EVER GIVE UP,  THAT IS PART OF HIS MAGIC AND AND ONE OF THE REASONS SO MANY OF US REMAIN “BRETT FANS”.

#4 A PACKER LEGEND FOREVER!

But how do we get Brett to understand that his value now is as a coach, teaching young quarterbacks how to stay so cool in the pocket as the play develops.

That way we can cheer for him and his team all over again. And it won't matter that his ankle hurts!

Just my .02 worth! Rod
