Starting at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers...

I wrote this in March:

1992 was a big year.

My daughter was...134 days old – four months, thirteen days – on September 13 of that year. A button, she was. Bright red curly hair, pudgy cheeks, and a howl that made coyotes cover their ears in pain.

That was the day Brett Favre first saw game action for the Green Bay Packers.

A week later, at 143 days, Favre took over for an injured Don Majkowski and rallied his team to a come-from-behind win.

And one week after that, at 150 days, Favre started his first game.

She’ll be 5,975 days old – settling in to her junior year of high school – when somebody besides Brett Favre finally starts under center for the Green Bay Packers.
That's today. Her three younger brothers have never seen another quarterback start for Green Bay.

Go Pack!
