You’re excited, aren’t you? The old slinger of guns, Brett Favre, is in the town where he once led the Packers and also stabbed the same Packers and their fans in the back, today.
It’s not what you think though. Lord Favre will not be appearing at tonight’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons. He’s too chickenshit to do that.
Favre is in Green Bay for a Rawhide Boys Ranch event to honor former Packers quarterback Bart Starr, according to Chris Mortensen.
Starr, who has long been a supporter and spokesperson for Rawhide, is recovering from a stroke.
If you’re not from Wisconsin or haven’t seen the commercials, Rawhide is an organization that helps troubled boys. It is not connected with the Packers.
So no, Favre will not be trotting out onto Lambeau Field tonight.
But he’s in Green Bay! Why wouldn’t he show up at Lambeau?!
Because he’s afraid of getting booed. If he does go to the game, it will be incognito.
As of now, no plans for Favre to attend game tonight, source says. If he does go, he most likely would do it so he wasn't seen. #packers
