    [size=12pt]Mathematics To Retire Favre's Number[/size]
    March 27, 2008

    CAMBRIDGE, MA—Mathematicians, statisticians, number theorists, and members of numeral-oriented professions held a press conference at MIT Tuesday to announce plans to honor quarterback Brett Favre's stellar 17-year career by retiring the number four. "After careful consideration, we came to our conclusion based on the following factors: one, Favre's passion for the game; two, his unmatched ability to win; three, his resilience and sheer toughness in the face of adversity on and off the field; and five, the fact that he holds every significant passing record," professor Jeffery Hamilton said. "No person will be permitted to ever use the number again, though it may be necessary to create a new integer to place between three and five." Favre's number will be retired sometime during the 2008 NFL season and will join the other numbers retired from mathematics, including 23, 42, and 1,003,256.

    [size=12pt]PACKERS TO RETIRE FAVRE’S NUMBER IN WEEK ONE[/size]

    ...

    The bigger question is whether the frame will come with one of those “break glass in case of emergency” hammers, so that Favre can retrieve the jersey and play, if/when Aaron Rodgers (who couldn’t stay healthy as the backup) goes down.

    How about, in keeping with todays technology, we switch to hexdecimal notation?
    Then we can have 4A, 4B, etc..

    Favre's No. 4 to be retired during Packers-Vikings opener
    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/17855979.html

    The Vikings already know they face a tough assignment, opening the season on a Monday night (Sept. 8) against the arch-rival Packers at Lambeau Field.

    But coach Brad Childress and Co. learned today the intensity level that night at Lambeau will be increased even more. The Packers announced they will retire Brett Favre's No. 4 that evening. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN
