Update from our story yesterday re: Charles Woodson’s speech to the team and message to Obama: “See you at the White House.” In case you missed it, yesterday, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt handed the President an autographed Charles Woodson jersey. Included with the signature: “See you at the White House … Go Packers!”
We couldn’t help ourselves, so T-shirt now available!

The State of Union was top of mind for many Americans last night, but this jewel of a speech by Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson is my favorite. Prior to the Bears/Packers NFC Championship Game, President Obama (a self-proclaimed Bears fan) predicted a Bears victory. If the Bears had won, Obama agreed to attend the Super Bowl. Well we all know how the game went…
Following the game, Woodson delivered an impassioned speech (video link) followed by a “1-2-3 White House” breakdown:
The president don’t want to come watch us win the Super Bowl? Guess what? We’ll go see him.
Today Obama visited Green Bay. Upon arriving, he was greeted by Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt. With a big grin, Jim handed the President an autographed Charles Woodson jersey. Included with the signature: “See you at the White House … Go Packers!”

Sporting News has just awarded Clay Matthews with their NFL Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) award! Congratulations Clay and Go Pack! Check out our DPOY t-shirt available in the brentfavre.com store.
Beyond his statistics (23-1/2 sacks, 11 passes defended, three forced fumbles and one interception returned for a touchdown in his two NFL seasons), Clay Matthews impacts a game in ways few defensive players can. He is the NFL’s Tasmanian Devil, a player who is in constant motion, attacking from here, there and everywhere.

ESPN is reporting that the NFL is only going to levy a $50,000 fine on Brett Favre for his involvement in the Sterger “Sextgate” incident. Commissioner Roger Goodell “could not conclude that Favre violated league policies relating to workplace conduct” but fined the Minnesota Vikings quarterback $50,000 “for his failure to cooperate with the investigation in a forthcoming manner.”
What a load of crap. The league is just trying to coverup for their golden boy Brent Pevre. In my opinion Brett is guilty of sending the pictures. Regardless…$50k!!?? That’s like $16,666 per inch – less than some fines for illegal hits! I think it’s time for Favre to retire, hit the ‘ole dusty trail, and collect his retirement watch.

The league has been waiting to hear from Jenn Sterger. The meeting was perviously canceled on three separate occasions just moments before it was supposed to occur.
ESPN reports the meeting lasted for three hours. ”Phil Reese, Sterger’s agent, told The Associated Press in an e-mail that Sterger met with league officials and “we cooperated fully by providing them with substantial materials in our possession. We now await the NFL’s decision.”
