Big Favre Fan: Brett Favre Jersey Worn Everyday for Four Years

Paul SalmanSenior Analyst IMay 6, 2008

In my opinion Brett Favre is one of the top three NFL quarterbacks ever.

However, I must admit, there is a very unhealthy obsession nationwide with Favre, especially in Wisconsin. I have been to Wisconsin a few times, and no matter the day of the week, you are bound to see a #4 jersey.

If you go to school with one little guy in Ridgefield, Connecticut, you see him in a green #4 jersey everyday—since Christmas 2003. Yes, you did the math right, that's about four and a half years of him wearing the same Brett Favre jersey.

December 31, 2007, the Brett Favre fan finally attended his first Packers game
at Lambeau Field in his favorite jersey.

Don't worry; his classmates did not have to avoid him due to the odor of his jersey. His mom was sure to wash it every other day, and mend it if needed.

His father states that his son has become more worried about his appearance, so he decided to finally shed the jersey on his 12th birthday on April 23rd.

I love Brett Favre too, but I think these parents may have needed to take a little more control of this boy. I mean four years in the same shirt is a bit overboard, don’tcha think!

Weren't there any family gatherings where he needed to dress up!

I tell ya, there are some crazy people out there!
