My cousins are all die-hard Packer fans

My cousins are all die-hard Packer fans

Ok, I know everyone is sick of talking about Brett Favre. I have been trying not to write this post for the last couple days, but my Wisconsin cousins keep sending me great stuff that I have to share.

The pic is from my cousin Dustin, I saw a similar one at Packer Palace today as well. Waupun, WI.

Then there is the nicely produced Brett Favre and the Jets (Benny and the Jets) parody song sent to me by my cousin Dennis. I haven't found this version on the internet yet. When I have searched I keep finding this lame one with a guy who cannot sing and the lyrics aren't as good. This version's production values are amazing.

Brett Favre and the Jets Parody Song

And then there is my cousin Margo who wrote me a letter (remember those?) about the whole Favre fiasco and included a clipping from the Post-Crescent from Aug. 10th with a point/counterpoint entitled "Are Brett Favre fans Packer fans?" Margo states:

Bill & I took a ride up to Green Bay to watch their first practice, expected to see Favre but instead after his meeting with all the big wigs that day he drove off to the airport and left. You should have seen the tension of fans at the practice, thought for sure there would be a fight. There was a group chanting "Bring Favre Back" (mostly everyone in favor of Favre..hate signs for Thompson!) while someone else was yelling burn the #4 Favre jersey...Did you watch the first Packer game, right before it started it said..."Teams win Championships. Individuals don't."

And there it is. When people write to us and say "How can you have a blog in New York City about the Packers?" I can say...it's in our blood. And I mean it. I love my family. Go Pack!

This is really immature. It makes me sad =/ Brett didn't LEAVE for the Jets, McCarthy TRADED him. He wanted to come back, but McCarthy wanted goddam Rodgers instead of Favre, who's been a packer for 14 years (I think that's the right number.) Honestly, football has died for me. I loved the Packers because of how they were a family. Now that's gone, football has died to me.

Easy. The ordeal was ugly, but really looking back, neither the Packers or Favre will be forever tarnished by this. Rodgers has been a great heir (PR-wise, so far) to Favre and Brett continues to play. And after the Mccarthy/Thompson era ends, #4 will be retired as it is meant to be. Everyone needs to settle down and accept what's happened -- move on.

What dustybricks6 said. I am forever a Brett fan (irritation aside) and a Packers fan. The two are NOT irreconcilable, people.

Get a grip and GO PACK (and Brett the Jet).

Is that why Bus Cook was contacting the Vikings a month after Favre retired? Talk about needing to get your facts straight...
