Marquette Students, Nation React To Favre Retirement


Lacking sufficient poster board, Marquette students improvise

The morning after a big announcement is always the worst, especially when it’s your franchise player hanging up the cleats because he doesn’t want to study film anymore.

And Brett Favre fans aren’t taking this retirement gig very well. “I feel very badly. Just like everyone else. We should all be wearing black armbands because of Brett’s retirement,” one guy told the OSHKOSH NORTHWESTERN.

The consensus in Wisconsin is universal. “At Ace Hardware at 500 E. Northland Ave., Appleton, employee Rich Mueller affixed 8-inch-tall black letters to the store’s large sign in front of the building. “Say it ain’t so Brett,” the message read. He had just learned of Favre’s retirement from a co-worker who had heard from a couple of city employees who had stopped in the store,” reports the APPLETON POST-CRESCENT.
