That’s not a question. It’s a statement.
If you’ve ever spoken to me, or visited this blog previously, you know I’m about one of the most fanatic Green Bay Packers fans around.
- I don’t have a single Brett Favre jersey…..I have three.
- I don’t have a picture of a the Packers in my office……I have a shrine dedicated to Vince Lombardi, Brett Favre, Bart Starr, and the remainder of the greatest team to ever play the great game of football.
- What did my wife get for me for a wedding present? A brick at Lambeau Field with our names and wedding date on it (so I won’t forget).
- For our first anniversary, she got my name on the waiting list for season tickets to the Green Bay Packers (only 62,566 names ahead of me……but I’m moving up!)
So you can bet that last weekend, I was sitting by my television cheering like a madman when Brett threw the TD pass that vaulted him into the record books, past Dan Marino, with 421 Career Touchdown Passes. I doubt that Brett is actually concerned with computer security, but if you’re reading…..congratulations on the 4-0 start and on the new record!
My Brett Favre Story – I actually came within arms reach of Brett Favre during training camp years ago during a trip to Green Bay. I waited with several other about 2 hours after practice, hoping to get an autograph. The equipment manager told us that Brett had left, so most fans packed bags and headed home. 30 minutes later, Brett comes out in shorts, flip-flops, and that old orange Nike hat he used to wear everywhere. He was walking up to this truck I was standing next too (big Ford F-250)…when a fan rushed up to him to get a signature, Brett replied, “Hey guys, I have to go pick up my kids at daycare, and if I sign one….I’ll have to sign every one, and I just can’t be late.” and then he hopped in his truck and left. Can’t fault the guy for going to pick up his kids, and he was very gracious. He also has hands about the size of pie plates.
(Shameless request – Okay, I’m still trying to find someone who can introduce me to the IT guys for the Green Bay Packers. If you know them, get a brutha an intro! I’m more than willing to fly up and chat with them about security!)
