    After 1,561 days, a young man finally takes off his Favre jersey



    By MJD

    David Witthoft, the youngster who had been wearing the same Brett Favre jersey every day for more than four years, has finally taken it off.
    The timing of Favre's retirement actually works out pretty well for the young fellow. He was turning 12, and as 12-year-olds often do, he was growing quickly. The jersey he was given on his 8th birthday barely covered his torso these days.
    And, being 12, he had also started to become concerned about his appearance, and as far as I know, the "snug, faded jersey that doesn't cover the belly button" look hadn't taken hold as a major fashion trend. At least not when employed every single day of the year.
    So the streak ends at 1,561 days, and I applaud the young man for his Favre enthusiasm. I can't say I love any player enough to wear his jersey every single day. Not until the Ryan Leaf comeback, anyway.
    What shirt got the call in place of the tattered jersey? A red Nike shirt. I have been unable to confirm reports that Aaron Rogers is visiting the Witthoft household every day, crying and begging the young man to wear an Aaron Rogers #12 jersey.
    The new "longest amount of time one man has been wearing the same jersey" streak belongs to Ricky Polaski of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, who has been wearing a Ben Roethlisberger over a Journey t-shirt for approximately 77 hours. But that's only because he hasn't felt like showering or leaving his apartment in that time.

    Yeah, I'm thinking some line about a pot, a kettle and their related color is in order here...

    anyone?

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...
