Brett Favre's Jersey To Be Retired

It must be a glory day in Heaven if your a +Green Bay Packers fan. Years of bitterness have subsided, and now Brett Favre is officially ready to join the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. Just think of how many people love +Brett Favre.

The legendary quarterback, who made his return to Wisconsin last year for a ceremony honoring Packers icon Bart Starr, was looking at 2015 as the target year for his dramatic homecoming. This will be one of the most-watched retirement ceremonies in the modern era. In an age where football pomp has lost a bit of its luster, Favre’s return after a long, heated schism will be fascinating – and emotional – to watch.

“I’m pleased to announce that I will be returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of my jersey. It was a tremendous honor to play 16 years for the Green Bay Packers. 

Now to have my name placed among others such as Starr, Hornung, Kramer, Taylor, Lambeau, Nitschke, Lombardi, Davis, White and Hutson is a special honor that I share with all of my teammates and coaches, and that would not have been possible but for the foresight of Ron Wolf, the greatest GM In the history of the NFL. I’m truly looking forward to celebrating and sharing this special moment with all of the great fans of the Green Bay Packers. Go Packers!”
