Lumberjack?

Speaking in mid-June, McCarthy and Packers general manager Ted Thompson gave no indication Favre was considering a comeback. Thompson visited Favre’s Mississippi home in May and said: “he’s got a nice place. He says he drives around his place and cuts down trees and cuts grass. He’s a hands-on guy.”

A living legend needs some time to acclimate to no longer putting on the game-face.  But after reading this I couldn’t help but wonder about this image that Brett “drives around his place and cuts down trees”.  I instantly started to drift… Is he doing this by hand – maybe to stay in shape and be outdoors?  Is he training for a lumberjack competition?  (That would be so great).  A woodworking career? (Woodwork by Favre, tell me that wouldn’t fetch top dollar).  Did he pimp out a truck with robot arms equipped with giant saws (He’s got the money, I’d at least think about it).  Is he angry?  Is he going to have a bonfire for every Packers game? How many trees does he cut down?  He’s Brett Favre so if he wants to cut down a few trees, so be it.  But I am curious –  how many does he want to cut down?  Does he have a goal or is literally just driving around cutting down trees?  Fascinating. 

If you could buy a 7 foot totem pole hand made by the greatest QB in history, wouldn’t you buy it?  What if he makes dog houses?  A house for your dog, made by Brett, from trees in his own back yard?  Please…prices start at $1,000 and that’s for the little ones!  Brett – if you’re looking for employees, I’m in.  This could also be a great tax write off if proceeds go to charity.  

You heard it here first: “Carved by Favre” – I think it could work.
