Throw a Favre-watching party for Green Bay game
August 24, 2009
The minute the news broke about quarterback Brett Favre coming out of retirement again to play for the Minnesota Vikings, fans everywhere flocked to their computers to see when the matchup against Green Bay would be.
Why? Because Favre played 16 seasons with the Packers and is now playing for the team's divisional rivals.
The elevated drama will make the October 5 matchup against the two one of this season's most watched games.
To prepare, send out party invitations and consider explaining the behind-the-scenes drama between Favre and his former team. This game has the potential to bring even non-football fans out, just to see what happens.
With party decorations, consider having both team logos on the wall and possibly some pictures of Favre during his early days with the Packers.
Because Favre can stir up emotions among football fans, it may be fun to set up a quick game during halftime. Tape a poster of Favre on the wall and give people the chance to throw a small football at the quarterback's head. It may help those who feel like the 39-year-old player should stay retired.
