Fans get creative with Favre the ViQueen

It's really quite interesting to see how fans vent as the day draws closer -- perhaps as early as tomorrow -- for Ol' #4 to don that funky purple. You know what I'm talkin' about. Brett finally says for certain that he's playing for the ViQueens this next season. You can almost hear him say, "Reputation and legacy be damned! I want to stick it to Ted Thompson no matter what!"

OK. Well, judging by radio call-in shows and even some national pundits and Hall of Fame QBs, Brett has already done a good deal of damage to himself. Yes, there are those who also say that if he wants to play, can play, and finds a team willing to let him play, more power to him. Always two sides.

But fans need a way to express their feelings about this, regardless of which side they come down on. And the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is offering fans a way to use their creative abilities to submit images to a gallery showing Favre as a ViQueen. The range is from the rather vitriolic (look it up) to the favorable, although most tend to skew to the less-than-positive, shall we say.

But don't take my word for it. Check out the gallery here.
