    :wink:

    Favre was planning to go down, but because of his foot injury, he needed to stay in Green Bay for a couple days to receive treatment. I'm pretty sure he'll at least be down in Kiln over the weekend.

    Also, before yesterday's game, he and Steve McNair donated a couple trucks of generators and food.

    Link

    Favre, with the help of equipment manager Red Batty, rounded up supplies, including generators, food and water, that were loaded onto the chartered plane.

    'When we get to Nashville, there's going to be a guy who drives [the supplies] to Hattiesburg,' Favre said. 'From there, hopefully, we can disperse this even further south.

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair teamed up with Favre and arranged to fill a tractor-trailer with relief supplies.

    The co-MVP of 2003, who has a home near Favre's, also is offering to swap an autographed photo in exchange for each minimum donation of $100 to his foundation. Those funds will be distributed to victims in rural Mississippi such as his hometown of Mount Olive, Miss.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    Welcome to the NFC North.

    I think that no matter what your initial impressions are of Peyton, he is the real deal as a person. He is able to help where others can't cause he plans ahead, it is nice that his brother gets to ride his coat tails on this one. I am glad they are doing what they are doing.

    The guy has a charity FOUNDATION set up which he actively seeks money for all year round so when something like this happens, he can help. That is CLASS.

    TOO many athletes are all about the BLING BLING and not about the liquid assets.

    Serena is going to auction off her $40,000 ear rings this week if you all want to buy them
