Iraqi detainees taunt Wisconsin Soldiers about Favre

About the only thing worse you could say to a Packers fan is......Your cow doesn't produce enough milk to make cheese.

If you happen to be a Packers fan who is sick and tired of hearing about Brett Favre, and you're thinking of joining the National Guard and going overseas to get away from it all.... stop. It's not going to work. The detainees in Baghdad are going to be just as vicious as the Vikings fans you know.

Iraqi detainees are attempting to hit Wisconsin soldiers where it hurts—with Brett Favre jokes. After troops revealed themselves to be Packers fans by decorating their Wisconsin National Guard camp in Baghdad with the team’s colors, the detainees there apparently realized that Favre’s move from the Packers to the Vikings was a sore point, and “things just started going downhill from there,”

First Lieutenant Tim Boehnen says. "One of the big words they know now is 'shenanigan.' They'll constantly talk about 'Favre shenanigans,'” said Boehnen. “'He's so good for the Vikings,' and 'The Packers have got to really feel bad about that one.’”

The detainees themselves are more focused on soccer, but appear to be quick studies of America’s signature sport. “They’ll hear guards talking about it, and then they pick up a lot of stuff from that,” said Boehnen. “They’re very crafty.”

Detainees are reportedly also bringing up Ryan Grant's diminishing YPC average, showing soldiers the Aaron Rodgers Sack Tracker, and teasing them about drafting Greg Jennings when Brandon Marshall was still on the board.
