How much do you love the Packers?

Probably not as much as this kid.
Boy, 11, Takes Off Brett Favre Jersey After Wearing It Every Day Since 2003

GREEN BAY, Wis. — David Witthoft finally shunned his Brett Favre jersey for a red shirt for the first time in 1,581 days.

The 12-year-old Ridgefield, Conn. boy wore the No. 4 jersey every day since receiving it as a gift for Christmas in 2003.

David's father, Chuck Witthoft, says Monday that his son's last day wearing the jersey was April 23 on his 12th birthday. Witthoft conceded his son was starting to become more concerned about his appearance after the jersey barely came down to his belt line.

Witthoft first gained national attention three years ago, and attended his first Packers game in December. He's also planning to attend the Sept. 8 game when the Packers retire Favre's No. 4.

His mother, Carolyn, had washed the jersey every other day and mended it when needed.
And I thought I was a Packer fan...

This kid needs counseling. He has obviously been duped by the Packer cult.

Get the kiddo a pair of Zubas and it won't make any difference how short the shirt is. Of course he'll need a mullet as well.
