Boy, 11, about ready to retire Favre jersey

GREEN BAY, Wis. - A boy who hasn't stopped wearing his Brett Favre jersey since Christmas four years ago finally attended his first Green Bay Packers game.

David Witthoft, 11, of Ridgefield, Conn., traveled with his family to Lambeau Field to watch the Packers' 34-13 victory over the Detroit Lions Sunday.

Witthoft admits he will probably soon have to hang up the jersey, which he received for Christmas in 2003.

"I thought I would keep wearing it as long as I could get it over my head," Witthoft said after the game. "But I'll probably take it off in the next year, certainly. Then I'll hang it up in a frame or maybe send it to the [Packers] Hall of Fame."

His mother, Carolyn, washes the jersey every two days and has had to do some mending of the jersey.
