The gunslinger is in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. It is an event that was certainly expected, but what was not expected is just how fast his career unfolded.
It seems like yesterday, the kid with name that no one could pronounce arrived in Green Bay.
There are so many great memories, but here are three that I will always remember:
1. the diving touchdown, the last at Milwaukee County Stadium: It”s wonderful that coach Holmgren tied it to his presentation at the ceremony
2. The Superbowl touchdown to Andre Rison: I was in New Orleans, but watching it from Bourbon St. with friends….His arm pumping his helmet in the air and the smile on his face…unforgettable. It was in that moment that Packers Nation knew the glory would return.
3. Retirement: His teary departure from Green Bay. It was a surreal day. Someone how the world had a feeling the book on Brett Fave’s football career was not finished.
Of course there are many more memories, but those three really stand out.
