(October 2, 2009) --- The countdown is on! Just three days until Aaron Rodgers takes on Brent Favre in Minnesoso. It should be an exciting game no matter what the outcome (ie: Packers by 30 or Packers by just 1)! And while you’re watching the action (hopefully with the rest of the Packer Party Crew at One Eyed Jack’s in downtown Orlando) expect one record to be shattered on Monday night: the total number of times Favre’s name is mentioned during a football telecast. So much so John Madden will have wished that he unretired too!
And for those who have prior commitments and will not be able to see this highly touted Packers game, here’s what you should be hearing on the Vikings Sports Radio Network come Monday night :
-(First quarter, following the first Favre-thrown interception of the game) “Well, he used to play for Green Bay... you know, I’m sure it must have been a slip of the ol’ memory there.”Quick PackerPage prediction: Green Bay 31-Minnesota 9.
-(Second quarter, after Favre’s second interception) “Man, he must have had a flashback and thought he was throwing to Donald Driver.”
-(Third quarter, when Favre tosses away another one) “You know, he’s just like a kid out there, trying to make everyone on both sides feel like a winner. Whadda great guy!”
-(Final quarter, just after Favre’s fourth pick) “Ah dammit... why did we sign that guy again?”
Final Deep Thoughts: “No matter how you look at it, 12 minus 4 will always equal 8.” *
