Brett Favre better hope he packed his MicroTouch trimmer, because he has a long-awaited reunion with the city of Green Bay to get ready for.
The retired quarterback landed in Green Bay on Monday afternoon. The Packers great -- whose legacy in Titletown was quickly doused in feelings of betrayal when The Gunslinger abruptly reversed retirement and signed with the New York Jets in 2008 -- is headed to his old stomping grounds in order to attend a local event honoring fellow Packers signal-caller Bart Starr.
As the years passed and anger toward Favre receded in Green Bay, the Packers slowly began to make plans for the quarterback's return -- and eventual induction into the team's Hall of Fame. This past August, the team announced that Favre's No. 4 will be retired sometime in 2015, to go along with his induction.
"It's going to be here before we know it and it's going to be a great moment," Favre said in August. "I was always a Packer. I played my heart out each and every year I played, and I'm proud of that.
"I knew this moment would come," he continued. "I'm just thankful that ... it's in stone and it's going to be done."
