Brett Favre Is Known The World Over For...

Yet another reference to the Packers. I guess when it comes down to it, you can take the girl out of Wisconsin, but not the Wisconsin out of the girl.

I was talking with a French man on the train yesterday. I told him that I was visiting from Chicago, but then he asked where I was born. He crinkled up his nose when I said Wisconsin, like he didn't understand.

I said to him, "You know... Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre." He looked off into the distance and mumbled "Brett Favre...Brett Favre" as if the name was ringing a very far-off bell.

"Ah, There's Something About Mary," he finally said with a look of great satisfiction. "Cameron Diaz!" It took me a second to recall it, but it is true that Favre had a small role in that movie. He played himself.
