    My trip to Wisconsin

    So yesterday I flew to Milwaukee to work with our biggest customer...in a nice little community named Menomonee Falls, the home of Kohl's Dept Stores, right in the heart of cheesehead country.

    Upon entering the lobby you are directed to sign in. On the spur of the moment, I thought I'd have a little fun, so I signed in as Brett Favre, with my title and company as listed on the "Visitor" tag below.

    I wore this tag in our meetings with the buyers, technical design people and the P.R. dept. All the guys were pissed at me, but I think they were more pissed at Favre for making such a mess. The ladies were mad at the Packers "for doing this to Brett". It was a fun day, what with all of this turmoil. I can only imagine what McCarthy, Rodgers and the front office are going through.

    I hope we still get orders from Kohl's...buy like I told my boss, this rivalry is much bigger than business. But he doesn't understand...he's a Jets fan.

    I was there for the day...it's usually a day trip, hardly ever stay over. Next time I'll send you a PM.

    Touche my man ;D...I was very surprised that all of the people I spoke to were so intense and agitated about this situation. Then I thought...the closest thing I could compare it to would be Derek Jeter and the Yankees, and he hasn't played nearly so long as Favre.
