Official Website of Brett Favre - Retired NFL Quarterback

I’m pleased to announce that I will be returning to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2015 for induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and retirement of my jersey.

Congratulations to Brett Favre! It was a long time coming.

White Out | The Best Basic Tees

The basic recipe of the plain white t-shirt is remarkably simple: two short sleeves, a cotton weave, an ovular neck, a flat hem, maybe a chest pocket if you’re feeling adventurous.

Agreed! There’s nothing I like more than a plain white tee.
