 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A boy who hasn't stopped wearing his Brett Favre jersey since Christmas four years ago has 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 on Sunday.
Witthoft admits he will probably soon have to hang up the jersey, which he got for Christmas in 2003.
``I thought I would keep wearing it as long as I could get it over my head,'' Witthoft told the Green Bay Press-Gazette 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 mend it.
