Rollin’ Out The Red Carpet For Brett Favre
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but Total Packers has been Brett Favre free for a couple days. Trust me, I’d prefer to keep it that way. But I just stumbled upon something that made my head spin.
On November 1st, the city of Green Bay will be rolling out the red carpet for a Minnesota Viking. That’s right, Mayor Jim Schmitt is hell-bent on welcoming Bizzaro Brett with open arms.
In an article posted by Fox 11 WLUK, Schmitt is quoted wondering what his city can do to welcome back traitor scum.
“I’m interested to see what we could and should do here I think it’s an opportunity to show how classy this community is,” said Schmitt.
Schmitt said he’s received homecoming ideas from the public that include creating the world’s biggest waffle in the shape of a number four to naming a beer after Favre.
Schmitt said he’ll use the top four ideas before the November 1st game.
And I suppose the taxpayers will be left to pay for this giant waffle, right?
But seriously, I have an idea Mr. Mayor. To commemorate this historical event, let’s have a parade. One float can have a giant knife sticking out of the back of a cartoon State of Wisconsin. Another float can show a drunken Viking dry humping the corpse of Vince Lombardi. Either one would be just as classy as spending any money or time welcoming this guy to Green Bay.
Trust me, Brett Favre doesn’t care. He doesn’t appreciate it. He’s only said nice things about Packers fans when asked directly about it. This is an old gunslinger who couldn’t wait to turn his back on the Green Bay Packers.
He is the enemy now. He is a Viking. He is Bizzaro Brett.
Save the red carpet for when/if we retire his number.
