How to Celebrate Favre's Arrival? Goats

There were many different ways to recognize Brett Favre's arrival in Minnesota.  I bought a Favre jersey.  I'm sure Brett Favre shot glasses have been flying off the shelves -- and, for the ladies, Favre jersey earrings.  Some people were unhappy with the deal and voiced their displeasure on places like talk radio or this fine blog.

But a truly original way to commemorate the moment Favre became a Viking?  As the Winona Daily News reports, a woman came into a Winona Tires Plus after her car broke down.  She told this to the repairman:

"Oh, by the way," the woman said. "I have a goat in my trunk."

If you thought that was weird, it gets even weirder:

The goat had been painted purple and gold - the colors for the Minnesota Vikings. Shaved into its side was the No. 4 - the number of Brett Favre, who made his Vikings debut Friday night in a preseason game in the Twin Cities.

I think the Vikings need to open a few more souvenir shops in greater Minnesota.  Just get a jersey!

Or, Bruce Ciskie suggests this person could have been a Packers fan who was having a difficult time handling the Favre news.  Hmm....
