Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Fans of the Green Bay Packers still can't quite believe that Bret Favre isn't theirs anymore. On Monday night, the Packers play their rivals the Minnesota Vikings. Favre is now the Vikings' quarterback after coming out of retirement. Packers' fans will show what they think at half time; a bar and grill will set up a flaming barrel. Ten dollars go to charity every time a wounded Packers' fan throws in a green Favre jersey, a poster or a picture.
