MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - While Brett Favre is mulling his decision about next season, fans in Minnesota are using a unique form of persuasion.
Two different messages of appreciation and hope that Favre will
return to the Minnesota Vikings in 2010 have been posted on billboards near his home in Hattiesburg, Miss.
Some fans started a Facebook group that has grown to more than 120,000 people. Group creator Jay Tappe says the idea was to give
Favre a proper send-off after his first season in Minnesota, since the Vikings played their last game on the road.
Twin Cities sports radio station KFAN put up the other billboard in Hattiesburg.
