The addition of one Brett Favre to the roster of the Minnesota Vikings has caused much hubbub across the land in recent days; it’s hard to find anyone not named Peter King or nicknamed Chilly who thinks this is all going to end well for either the Vikings or their fans (Favre, of course, will make out like a bandit regardless). Hell, even Favre’s new teammates are less-than-enthusiastic about their new gunslingin’ and interceptin’ QB.

And while we’re enjoying a bit of Schadenfreude at the whole enterprise, poor Packer fans are beside themselves. It’s not just that their once-beloved hero is playing for a rival team. No, the real problem is that Wisconsinites have spent millions of dollars on Favre merchandise and paraphenalia over the years. What to do now with it all? Cheeseheads might be tempted to send it all up in flames, but a couple of sports radio guys (”the Wisconsin Guys,” to be exact) in Madison have a better idea. Give it all to the homeless!
