    Conn. boy finally takes off Packers jersey after 1,581 days

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - David Witthoft finally shunned his Brett Favre jersey for a red shirt for the first time in 1,581 days. The 12-year-old Ridgefield, Conn. boy wore the No. 4 jersey every day since receiving it as a gift for Christmas in 2003.

    David's father, Chuck Witthoft, said Monday that his son's last day wearing the jersey was April 23 on his 12th birthday. Witthoft conceded his son was starting to become more concerned about his appearance after the jersey barely came down to his belt line............

    LOL!

    I'm of two minds:

    1. I respect his dedication to his team and favorite player

    2. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the kid or the parents that this happened.
    Parents could have bought him 7 jerseys one for each day, and got new ones as he got older.
    But the same one is just a bit gross and weird.


    BTW, will he be getting a #12 jersey this Christmas?
    If so, I hope the parents think ahead this time and get a XXXL.
    But then again, Rodgers probably won't last the season.

    He's also planning to attend the Sept. 8 game when the Packers retire Favre's No. 4.
    I hope to see this guy and take a picture for this thread.

    Who in thier right mind would wear a shirt that long.

    Heck I would think it would get so old it would get full of holes from so many washings and have to get retired or something like that.

    Only a yutz would think that a shirt is lucky enough do something stupid like that.
    ;D

    That pic doesn't do "The Shirt" justice. You can't see all the holes that are in it.
