A New Job for Brett Favre
If ever there was an on-the-field match to the iconic presence that Remington Arms has established in the field it would be Brett Favre. Now the two are teammates. While Brett Favre is known as one of the best quarterbacks of all-time, he’s also an avid outdoorsman.
Remington Arms Company Inc., America’s oldest gunmaker now in their 192nd year of United States manufacturing, has just announced a multi-year marketing relationship with Favre. The 2007 season marked Favre’s astounding 17th year as a pro quarterback, and Brett was recently named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Favre’s appeal to America is as much about his profound personal perseverance as it is his ability to put footballs in the hands of receivers, still, Favre makes no secret of the fact that hunting is one of his favorite ways to decompress.
When asked about his idea of the perfect day, Favre said, “If I could squeeze in throwing touchdown passes at a morning practice, lunch with my family and pulling the trigger on a trophy buck at sunset, that would be about as perfect as life can get. And it seems the older I get, the more I treasure the days spent in solitude in the woods. I’ve already hunted about 20 days this season, so this recent agreement with Remington is pretty special to me.”
