Surviving Sundays with no Packers football
In a chat with ESPN’s Rob Demovsky this week, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked about getting together with Brett Favre and Bart Starr to talk football at some type of event.
Since we’re always one step ahead of ESPN here at ALLGBP.com, we’ve learned that Rodgers, Favre and Starr actually did get together last week. However, it wasn’t to talk about any old event, it was to plan Favre’s return to Lambeau Field at halftime of the Nov. 9 game against the Bears.
The trio met at Chico’s near tiny Ringle, Wisconsin. Chico’s is a bar/restaurant in the middle of a corn field that serves amazing chimichangas.
ALLGBP.com has obtained an exclusive transcript of this historical meeting. Here it is:
Starr and Favre arrive at the same time, Starr in his 1996 Buick and Favre on his riding lawn mower. They shake hands, walk across the gravel parking lot, enter Chico’s, and find a quiet table near the bar.
Starr:Â I almost didnâ€™t recognize you with that giant beard and those two guns youâ€™re carrying around.
Starr grips Favreâ€™s biceps, which are exposed because Favre canâ€™t find any shirts with sleeves in Mississippi that fit over his arms.
Favre:Â Thanks, Bart. Iâ€™m coming back to Lambeau this year and I need to be in good shape so I can fight all the fans.
Starr:Â Oh Brett. Câ€™mon. No fans are going to try and fight you. They’ll be glad to have you back.
Favre:Â Itâ€™s all part of my plan to not get booed.
Starr:Â Your plan?
Favre:Â I donâ€™t want to get booed, Bart. I need to be loved. To ensure Packers fans wonâ€™t boo me, Iâ€™m going to challenge them all to a fight.
Starr:Â Oh fer chirssakesâ€¦..
Favre:Â Yeah, before I even make it out of the tunnel, Iâ€™m going to get on the mic, tell everyone in the stadium that their mother is a Vikings fan, and dare them all to come out to the 50 yard line and fight me to the death.
Starr:Â So youâ€™re going to have a death match with 80,000 Packers fans at Lambeau Field?
Favre:Â Goddang right. And Iâ€™m going to go undefeated, 80,000 â€“ 0. Have you seen these things?
