We all know by this point that Brett Favre wants to return to Football. But what’s perhaps understated is Wisconsinites’ desire to have him back as well. One Wisconsin store owner really wants it to happen.
Jon Gafner owns Oshkosh-based Jon’s Sports Shop. It’s a hunting supply store. So badly does he want Favre to return that should it happen, Gafner will give him a $25,000 shopping spree.
"Brett could take a new rifle off the rack, a new scope, shotgun, clothes. It's a great shopping spree. I'd like to win it."Of course that $25,000 is just a drop in the bucket compared to the over $11 million Favre made last year. But hey, everyone has to contribute something, right? Perhaps Gafner should be appealing not to Favre, but Packers management. They seem to be the conflicted ones. And they also might need those scopes and shotguns more than Brett does.
Nothing, though, will beat the Stadium II Bar’s offer in Green Bay. They’re offering a $25,000 pizza party. And with that I’ve now added the “$25,000 pizza party” to my list of things I’d really like to see.
