Sports Illustrated has a “Where are they now” series this week, one of those slow summer ideas that periodicals come up with from time to time (in fact, I might be doing one later this summer).
The cover man? Brett Favre. Of particular interest is his choice of attire. Per SI.com (you have to buy the magazine for the full story):
Favre, who still holds NFL records for wins as starter, completions, attempts, yards, times sacked, and most passes intercepted, donned that No. 4 Packers jersey for this week’s “Where Are They Now?” issue.
It’s first time that Favre has worn that dark green jersey since January 20, 2008, when his last pass as a member of the Packers was intercepted during an overtime loss in the NFC championship game. The day after the SI photo shoot, Favre reflected on wearing No. 4 again.
“It was so big on me,” Favre says. “It felt like a nightgown. That’s not my world anymore.”
