    Packers To Retire Favre's No. 4 At Season Opener, Sept. 8


    posted 04/17/2008

    The Green Bay Packers will retire Brett Favre's No. 4 at the team's season opener, Monday night, Sept. 8, vs. the Minnesota Vikings, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy announced Thursday.

    "The season-opening game is always an exciting event, and now we're very pleased to add the retirement of Brett's No. 4 to that evening," said Murphy. "It will make for an electric atmosphere at Lambeau Field, as well as a great opportunity for our fans around the country to share in it while watching the game on the national broadcast.

    "Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy and I looked at the entire schedule and felt the first game would be an ideal time to have the event. I spoke with Brett, as did Ted and Mike, about which game to choose. Ultimately, through our communications, we decided the first game would work great."

    Planning for the ceremony is underway with further details to be announced at a later date.

    Favre's No. 4 will become the sixth number retired by the storied franchise. Other retired Packers numbers include the No. 14 of wide receiver Don Hutson (1951), No. 3 of fullback Tony Canadeo (1952), No. 15 of quarterback Bart Starr (1973), No. 66 of linebacker Ray Nitschke (1983) and No. 92 of defensive end Reggie White (2005). All five bearers of the previously retired numbers are enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame

    Does that mean Favre has to wear a different number when he returns?

          They were in bed at 10 and asleep at 10:30. I never had to tell them to go to bed. I told all of them to get their pjs on about 9ish...

          They felt it would be better to sleep under the table Kirstin has in her room...you know cause of the earthquake they thought was going to happen last night.

                        Here's a few:

                        "He's got that burning desire to return only to be informed that burning is his hemroids flaring up."

                        "Not enough people know how to correctly pronounce 'Favre'."

                        "Slapping his wife's ass isn't the same as slapping his linemen's ass."
