Former Green Bay Packers’ fullback William Henderson – or as we always liked to call him, HONDO! – told ESPN’s First Take that he too will boo Minnesota Vikings quarterback when he returns to Lambeau Field on Sunday.
Here’s snip of what HONDO! had to say. The full video of the interview follows.
“As much of a friend as I am, would consider myself to Brett – teammate for life, from when he was with the Packers – I’m gonna boo like I hope the rest of the fans do. I’m gonna boo him. I like to believe, and I plead with everyone who considers themselves Packer fans to enjoy being a Packer fan and enjoy the rivalry, and I want to make sure I’m a Packer fan and I’m doing what I’m supposed to do. I’m going to be part of that 12th man – the one that doesn’t allow the Vikings to have any offensive edge and to be as disruptive as I can be. And I’m going to boo.”
HONDO! didn’t get a lot of pub for the Packers, but he was a great fullback on some great Packers teams. And hell, he’s a pretty snappy dresser, too.
We always knew HONDO! was a stand-up guy, as well as someone who would hurdle any punk-ass defender who tried to tackle him low, but these comments have raised his stock even higher.
Boo your ass off, Billy!
