There was Judas, and now there’s Brett Favre.Favre playing for the Vikings, Reagan playing for the Soviets. Heh.
Okay, the betrayal is not quite biblical. But it is indeed epic.
This Sunday, Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre will step onto Lambeau Field in Green Bay to play against the Green Bay Packers, the team that employed him for 16 years. That’s bad. It gets worse. He’ll be wearing purple — something no self-respecting man should do — and not just any purple. Like Larry Bird playing for the Lakers, Mike Krzyzewski coaching UNC, Ronald Reagan strategizing for the Soviets, Favre will take the field wearing the purple helmet of the hated Minnesota Vikings.
