Because i am hearing impaired, I know the meanings of a lot of words but cannot for the life of me pronounce them or spell them correctly because I don't hear them properly. I guess Brett's last name is one I'll really have to concentrate on spelling correctly.
No biggie - just a pet peeve of mine lol! For some strange reason it is pronounced "Farve" even even though it's spelled Favre - go figure! I just find it funny sometimes that so many people still don't know it's Favre after 17 seasons of seeing the back of his jersey on TV plus seeing his name in the news several thousand times over that time frame. Just humor me and I'll go away!
Actually, he insisted on spelling it FAVRE
, then in '06, he told the Packers he had changed his mind, and wanted it spelled FARVE
, then in '07, he changed his mind again, and changed it back to FAVRE
, then this past spring, he told him he wanted it to stay FARVE
, but he wasn't real sure, so maybe FAVRE
would be correct.
The Packers finally got fed up and told him they were gonna spell it R-O-D-G-E-R-S.
