20,000 Favre fans use Legends Game to say farewell
An estimated 20,000 fans crowded into Camp Randall Sunday, after an emotional hall of fame induction for legendary Packers quarterback Brett Favre the night before.
The showdown pitted former Packers Favre, William Henderson, Frank Winters and Antonio Freeman against NFL All Stars Donovan McNabb and former badger running back Ron Dayne.
Fans say the game was a great chance to say farewell to their favorite #4.
“Knowing the fact he’s finally back in Wisconsin, back in Madison, into where he’s pretty much started from,” fan Paul Brown said. “Now he’s going to play some flag football for us, who wouldn’t enjoy that. That’s awesome.”
“It’s bitter sweet,” fan Tyler Podendorfer said. “Like getting to see him one last time on the field. And getting to see him in person too.”
A portion of the $34 to $55 tickets goes towards the Favre 4 Hope foundation, which benefits several charities including the Make a Wish Foundation and the Special Olympics.
