Packers Offense Tallies 29!

You heard it here, folks: the Packers offense scored 29 in yesterday's game. What? You didn't know the Pack played yesterday? Did the Packer Fans United blog enter a time warp?

Naaaaahhhhh...just reporting the score of yesterday's annual Brett Favre Celebrity Softball Game held in Appleton, WI. The seventh annual event saw the Packers offense smack the Packers defense around by a score of 29-12. Played before a crowd of more than 8,000, this could have been the last such event, pending Favre's -- sorry to bring up the word again -- retirement after this coming season. It really all depends on that.

In an article in today's online Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Brett and his wife, Deanna, acknowledge that keeping the event going after he retires may be difficult. But it was apparently obvious to those in attendance, according to the article, that the couple was also savoring the moment, not knowing whether this successful annual fundraiser for Brett's charitable Fourward Foundation will continue another year or not. Of course, at this point...well, let's not start that talk again. In the meantime, if you want to read the article for yourself, just click here.
