GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A man who looks a lot like Brett Favre has been impersonating the retired quarterback around Green Bay, wearing a No. 4 jersey and even signing autographs.
David Thomason, who is Favre’s travel coordinator, tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette he was notified the man appeared at Packers practice Thursday and showed up at several sports bars in the area.
Thomason says it’s definitely not his boss, who he says hasn’t been in Green Bay since the Minnesota Vikings played at Lambeau Field last season.
The owner of Stadium View Bar & Grille in Ashwaubenon says the man came into his bar Thursday night and signed autographs for about 15 minutes. He says the man “keeps his head down so you can’t get that good of a look at him.”
