From the "It Was Only A Matter of Time" Department…

brett.favre.jpgIt might not have anything to do with baseball, but the drama, uncertainty, and general chaos surrounding Brett Favre’s recent decision to “unretire” is too hilarious a situation to ignore. So, in the grand tradition of last season’s Billy Donovan promotion in Fort Myers, the Augusta GreenJackets have announced that August 4 will be “Brett Favre Night” at Lake Olmstead Stadium.

In cases like these, I find it most expedient to quote copiously from the press release. Here’s what’s in store for the evening:

The GreenJackets plan on retiring the number four
jersey on August 4, only to reinstate it the next day on August 5. 
The team also will hand out a pair of flip flops to the first 100 fans
through the gates on August 4 to honor one of the greatest flip-floppers of all

Other events planed for the night include seat up
grades to box seating for anyone wearing a Favre jersey,
Green Bay or
Atlanta.  Fans wearing a “cheese head” will also
receive a free brat at the concession stand. 


We are also allowing any fan that purchases a ticket
between now and August 3 the


opportunity to reuse that ticket for the
Augusta 4 game because just because your game is
over, does not mean your game is over,”


Food specials will include brats and Pabst beer, and
there will be on field contests that include the “Lambeau Leap” and the “Strahan

The full release can be read here. Congratulations to Augusta GM Nick Brown and his front office staff for being the first club to poke fun at Favre and his waffling ways.
