Dear Mr. Favre...
I am married to a the biggest Viking fan that ever was.
So you see, I have spent eleven long years watching my husband's Vikings get burned by you and those Packers.
When the rumors began about you joining our beloved Vikings it was hard to even let the thought cross our minds. We never thought it would happen. But you did it, you traded your green for purple. I have to admit we were very skeptical about it all. It was so strange to see you in that Vikings jersey. I wasn't sure if Aric would ever be able to change his feelings towards you.
I am happy to report that you have done the impossible. You have softened Aric's heart. You have put a spring in his step. You have put a twinkle in his eye. You have played like a warrior and you have brought new life to our team. As of yet, Aric will still not allow himself to fully ignite that Super Bowl dream just yet, but if you keep playing the way you are, it is only a matter of time.
So THANK YOU Mr. Favre, for giving us a reason to wear our purple proudly. Never in a million years would I have thought that we would raise our kids to be Brett Favre fans...clearly these are the "last days". I would also like you to know that we will no longer make fun of your name or your age. You have earned our affection and we stand in awe of your skills.
