Retiring Packers Quarterback Finally Realizes Name Mis-spelled on Back of Jersey

Funny story written by Spunk Macnamara

Wednesday, 5 March 2008

The sports world was stunned after Brett Farve announced he'd be hanging up his jersey after 17 years in professional football, but nobody was more stunned than the legendary Packers quarterback himself.

"I decided, after almost two decades in the game, to hang up my jersey -- so I went to hang it up and saw my damn name was mis-spelled," said Farve, visibly agitated by the embarrassment.

"There it was: F-a-v-r-e. I'm Packers through and through, so I never take that jersey off. Heck, I sleep in that damn thing. How come nobody ever told me about that? Did you people actually think that's how my family name is spelled? 'Fav-ray'? How stupid do the Farves look?"

As it turns out, the jersey mis-spelling was intentional -- a practical joke pulled by the Packers equipment manager, Stu Venkman, who spent the last several years trying to get on the MTV show "Punk'd!."

Venkman spoke with this reporter on the condition of anonymity. "Did you see the look on Farve's face when he saw his name spelled wrong on the jersey? Priceless!"

Farve was less than amused. "Too bad equipment managers don't wear jerseys, or I'd put his name, 'Veknman,' right there on the back. The jerk."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
