Boy finally takes off jersey

Original story: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...?urn=nfl,80972

After 1,561 days, a young man finally takes off his Favre jersey
By MJD
David Witthoft, the youngster who had been wearing the same Brett Favre jersey every day for more than four years, has finally taken it off.

The timing of Favre's retirement actually works out pretty well for the young fellow. He was turning 12, and as 12-year-olds often do, he was growing quickly. The jersey he was given on his 8th birthday barely covered his torso these days.

And, being 12, he had also started to become concerned about his appearance, and as far as I know, the "snug, faded jersey that doesn't cover the belly button" look hadn't taken hold as a major fashion trend. At least not when employed every single day of the year.

So the streak ends at 1,561 days, and I applaud the young man for his Favre enthusiasm. I can't say I love any player enough to wear his jersey every single day. Not until the Ryan Leaf comeback, anyway.

What shirt got the call in place of the tattered jersey? A red Nike shirt. I have been unable to confirm reports that Aaron Rodgers is visiting the Witthoft household every day, crying and begging the young man to wear an Aaron Rogers #12 jersey.

The new "longest amount of time one man has been wearing the same jersey" streak belongs to Ricky Polaski of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, who has been wearing a Ben Roethlisberger over a Journey t-shirt for approximately 77 hours. But that's only because he hasn't felt like showering or leaving his apartment in that time.

They'll call anything news nowadays. any opinions on this?

Re: Boy finally takes off jersey

I think he washed it every night, maybe?

Farve was awesome, but I wouldn't wear his jersey every single day. That'd be boring.

Re: Boy finally takes off jersey

Now that's dedication. I wonder if he had to wear things over it at times... Favre is a good guy to keep his jersey forever like that *bias*

Re: Boy finally takes off jersey

^ You don't know who Brett Favre is? I seriously hope you're joking.

Anyway, the article isn't all that interesting. Some kid wore a Brett Favre jersey for 4 years straight; so what?

I don't watch sports. I only posted this article because I thought it was funny that they would consider this news.
