Last night, the Green Bay Packers inducted Brett Favre into the Packers Hall of Fame and retired his number 4 in a ceremony inside the Lambeau Field atrium. With the atrium filled as well as the seating bowl of Lambeau stuffed with 67,000 fans, Favre spoke to both groups with great emotion and humor on Saturday night as he accepted the honors.
Here are a number of notes from Saturday's events, and we at Acme Packing Company wish Favre our congratulations on the honors.
