Retiring the Famous #4

The Green Bay Packers announced today that Brett Favre's #4 jersey will be retired during their season opener September 8. The Packers play the Minnesota Vikings that night on Monday Night Football.

Favre's jersey joins just five others...

The 14 of wide receiver Don Hutson (1951)
The 3 of fullback Tony Canadeo (1952)
The 15 of quarterback Bart Starr (1973)
The 66 of linebacker Ray Nitschke (1983)
The 92 of defensive end Reggie White (2005)

Each of those men is enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame as I am sure Brett will be.
