Vikings fans want to thank Favre

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings fans, Vikings off the field, Brett Favre Updated: July 11, 2010 - 10:31 AM

Todd Glocke and three other Vikings fans have come up with a plan to let Brett Favre know just how much they care about him -- and whether he returns for another season.

According to this story in the Hattiesburg American, the four will drive from Minneapolis to Hattiesburg this week with the hope of saying thanks to Favre for his performance in 2009. They plan to leave on Tuesday and arrive in Mississippi on Thursday.

Glocke, by the way, plans to bring his motorcyle with him. That bike (which Glocke owns) happens to be the same one Vikings mascot Ragnar rides onto the field at the Metrodome before home games.

The group might have to wait a bit if they have any hope of seeing Favre. He has been working out with receivers at Oak Grove High School, so it's not as if he's hiding out at his home, but Favre and his wife, Deanna, are planning on being in Los Angeles on Wednesday for the ESPY awards.
