Brett Favre

MILWAUKEE -- Green Bay Packers fans have a unique way to celebrate Brett Favre in the lead up to his "Ring of Honor" induction ceremony on Thanksgiving night -- by riding the bus.

The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) is honorarily renaming the popular GreenLine, the FAVRE LINE, in honor of Favre.

The honorary renaming will last for one week, from November 19th until Thanksgiving.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele made the announcement standing at a bus stop at Water and Wisconsin Avenue that already has a very Packers feel to it. It’s where the GreenLine and GoldLine meet.

“This is our way of saying congratulations to Brett Favre and thanking him for the many, many years of excitement and wins,” County Executive Abele said.

Riders are encouraged to post pictures of themselves on the FAVRE LINE and tweet congratulations to Favre with the hashtag #FavreLine.
