Favre and Away

Over the past few years, I regularly write about politics, but there is more to life. Growing up a Chicago Bears fan, Brett Favre was the thorn in the side of my team for the better part of two decades. His gunslinging, throw caution to the wind, freewheeling style of football enamored fans and won many games for his Packers, including Super Bowl XXXI against the Patriots. He retired today, and twenty one starting quarterbacks later, Chicago fans have a reason to smile.
