That’s why I am bringing this lighthearted and somewhat cynical look at a photograph (see below) we’ve all probably seen in the past – it’s of Draft Day back in the early 1990s (remembers those days?) when Brett Favre took the call from the Atlanta Falcons that he was being selected. He’s surrounded by family and friends as he pictured reclining and relaxing during the phone call.
Everyone in the picture is having a good time and as the person who made the adjustments to the photo notes with punctuated captions, we get to have fun right along with them. I don’t know the person who wrote the captions on this photo … I must admit, it was one of those passed along across the Internet – you know, that cyberworld where you can believe everything you read …
As a side note, I think Brett Favre is one of the top 10 best quarterbacks of all time. What he did for the Packers franchise can’t be measured. He made Green Bay a household name in the 1990s and helped raise the franchise back up as one the best in the league.
But it is fun to take a look back at a time when things were a bit different.
With Draft Day coming around the bend and the Packers getting ready to make their selections, I thought this a fun and timely way to take a look back at the day when one of the greatest Packers of all time was selected.
