Packer fans hold "funeral" for Favre


GREEN BAY, WI (KWWL) -- Packers fans are bracing themselves for that dreadful moment, when Brett Favre takes the field wearing the white and purple uniform of the Minnesota Vikings.

But they have a funny way of welcoming Favre back to Green Bay.

Friday, a local radio station sponsored a ''funeral'' for Favre.

A hearse with black, number 4 flags on the windows was followed by a number of other cars.

The casket was taken to a bar where packers fans ''buried'' their memory of Favre.

The ''body'' was wearing a Vikings jersey and Wrangler jeans and was drapped in a Packers jersey.

Some Packers fans say it was disrespectful, but others say it was a way to move on.
