Brett Favre! Godfather of the NFL

Very sad to hear that the world of football will now be minus it’s Godfather! Brett Favre. What a player! What a guy! What a story! But we salute you and say thank you for some great moments. We’re so glad you played and contributed so much to the game. And I am really stoked and thankful we were able to see you play before you retired!

NEVER MIND! WELCOME BACK BRETT!

THRILLED…. AND CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU OUT THERE AGAIN!

(And Tommie gets a shot at sackin’ ya again… ; =)

NEW UPDATE: Brett’s playing for the JETTS!

Hey, that’s ok. And I say, “That’s Green Bay’s loss…”

“BROADWAY BRETT!!” yes, Brett Favre is now a JET! « GretaWire

Well the Pack went and did it, as of tonight Brett is a NY Jett!!! Just like politics the people do not have a voice even when we pay the bills.

We had the great pleasure of being invited by Tommie Harris to travel to Green Bay and see him and the Chicago Bears take on (…AND BEAT, of course…) the Green Bay Packers on October 7, 2007.  GO BEARS!  This was the game Brett Favre threw for 424 touchdowns, setting one more record. Wow! Actually, I think he set several records during this game. Tommie was with the team, focusing on the game, but he managed to grab some dinner with us at the hotel before the game. After dinner we went to the game with Bill Horn, Tommie’s Publicity Agent, and sat with some of Tommie’s friends, which included his pastor from Chicago. It was a blessing to meet and enjoy the game with them! Great guys! It was a clutch time, for sure! The atmosphere was incredible, the Green Bay fans were fun and friendly… it was good times and amazing to be at such a legendary place. And man, do the Green Bay fans love Brett! Don’t we all! Watching Brett run out on that field was absolutely surreal! The whole experience was surreal.

Tommie told me, a couple of weeks before this game, that Brett was one of the only QBs he ‘had NOT’ sacked! And he was able to sack him twice in this game. Bret & his Packers played a tough game, and Brett was his usual amazing self, but my Bears prevailed and Tommie’s play was ‘clutch!’ It was an exciting, ‘edge-of-your-seat ‘ game to the last second. Here are just a few photos of our memorable trip. Hope you enjoy! And Tommie, thanks, we love you and will never forget it!

In the Choctaw language there is no word for good bye.
So I’ll just say ‘see ya around’ Brett!
Thanks for waiting to retire until after I got to see you play!
Thanks for the memories! We’re sure gonna miss ya!
And enjoy your retirement!
YOU COULD PROBABLY USE THE REST!

Post Note: Hey, Brett… I’m all for you coming back! And would travel to see you no matter where you played. But, if you don’t wear the green and yellow, I’d love to see you in Chicago. Don’t think it will happen, but one can wish it were so.
