Normally for football fans when your team is out you don’t really cheer for another team to win. Maybe you cheer for a favorite player you won’t mind seeing get a ring or cheer against teams like the Patriots and Cowboys.
Lambeau leaper’s before you stop reading take a second to hear me out.
Let’s put aside the fact that he plays for the hated rival Minnesota Vikings and the other large gem that he dominated the Packers in both head to head match ups this season.
Focus on the positives, who does Green Bay Nation possibly hate more than the Vikes and Bears?
That answer is the Cowboys, who happen to be Favre’s opponent this weekend.
Another thing to focus on, if the Vikings win and the Cardinals take care of the Saints which are possible; Favre gets the chance to avenge his favorite cheese head fans.
Finally, of the reasons that Packer fans should cheer for Favre, the Green Bay fans don’t really hate him enough to cheer for Wade Phillips, Tony Romo, and the rest of the Cowboys?
I don’t thinks so.
Besides, it’s not like Favre torched the Packers secondary and sent them home early. If anything he tried to warn the Packers how bad it was by throwing for 7 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Granted watching Favre win games and possibly a Super Bowl in a Vikings uniform will be tough, but imagine it as being a certification of the NFC North’s elite play.
So this weekend when you turn the TV on Fox in the morning to watch some pre-game, Boys vs. Vikes coverage, think back to the wonderful memories of the horse that we used to bet, the one that always gave us a chance in the race.
