    It Can't Be Worse (Packers perspective)

    [size=13pt]It can't be worse[/size]


    Green Bay — When it finally happens Monday night, when Brett Lorenzo Favre - wearing that purple helmet emblazoned with white horns - breaks the huddle with the Minnesota Vikings and takes his first-ever gander at the opposing defense of the Green Bay Packers, fans of the Green and Gold aren't the only ones who are going to be experiencing a wide range of emotions.

    "It will be an interesting moment for me," Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Willie Davis said Wednesday. "I think I will have some sense of disappointment, some sense of that's the way things are because it's truly a business.
    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    The home of Packers Hall of Fame guard Fuzzy Thurston, a member of five championship teams, used to... be adorned with three framed Favre photographs - an indication of the close bond Favre and Thurston shared.

    The emphasis is on "used to."

    Thurston's wife, Sue, took down the frames shortly after Favre signed with the Vikings. Even the one that's personally autographed: "To Sue - From your favorite Packer, Brett Favre. Too bad, Fuzzy."

    "It's such a mixed feeling," Sue Thurston said. "I just love the guy, always have, he was my big hero. But I like the Packers, too, and I hate the Vikings. It's just . .â⠬‚. I don't like it. It just makes me sick."...
    That makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

    Fuzzy does not count.
    None of his games or era count.
    You already explained it, lol.

    Oh it can most certainly get worse!
    Starting with a week 4 Pack loss.
    It doesn't stop there though....How would this poor ol' lady feel about a season sweep by Favre and Co.?
    Not saying it will happen...just sayin.

    "It's going to be on every station, if they lose to the Vikings, for four days. I don't want to see that. I don't want to see the four-letter network have Brett's picture up and the lovefest. 'Ah, he's this. He's that. He just loves playing the game."
    funny how the cheeseheads view this now when it's their turn to be on the receiving end..
    the media can be a bitch sometimes eh boys?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
