Brett Favre is a very famous and successful football quarterback who use to play for the Green Bay (Wisconsin) Packers. He retired last spring then changed his mind and, after a prolonged bit of drama that was over-covered by the local media, he now plays for the New York Jets. Some Packer fans are taking his departure hard.

Waupun (pronounced wah-pon) is a small town in Wisconsin.

Hope this helps! :-)

Ha. I am in Wisconsin - I didn't know you were.

That sign cracks me up; I totally get it (obviously).

Oh. I thought it was referring to people who skip church to watch a football game.

Mr. Bee & I were born & raised in Wisconsin. We now live in Minnesota, but are still Packer fans.

You wouldn't believe the hoopla here. I think they might have given him the keys to the city. all this for a team that only pretends to play in NY. (The stadium's in NJ.)

Ah, ok. I recognize the name nowm. I don't really follow football so I didn't place the name immediately, but I remember hearing there was some fuss over him retiring and then changing his mind. I don't see what the big deal is, don't those sports guys go in and out of retirement all the time?

Not me man. When I retire its for keeps!

Oh, too funny!

I don't follow football either and didn't know the story, but I figured he must have left them for another team.
