Editor&8217;s note: Albert Lea Tribune Publisher Scott Schmeltzer is a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Brett Favre. Tribune Sports Editor Jeff Budlong has even described Schemltzer as having a &8220;man crush&8221; on Favre.

In his lament over Favre&8217;s retirement, Schmeltzer wrote the following poem &8212; for fun &8212; and he was willing to share it with readers.

By Scott Schmeltzer, Publisher

B is for the Blue-collar approach he played the game.

R is for the Rifle that he had for an arm.

E is for the Energy he brought to the Packer fans.

T is for the Terror he gave all Viking fans.

T is for True, which he was to his wife and to himself.

F is for the Fan he was for the game of football.

A is for Always having fun!

V is for the Vikings. They might be able to win a game now.

R is for Remembering all the highlights.

E is for Enormous &8212; the void he will leave Packer fans.

You add them together and you get the greatest quarterback to ever live.

Thanks, Brett.
