Minor league team welcomes Favre to Jersey

Brett Favre is officially part of the New Jersey sports scene. To welcome him to the Garden State, the Trenton Thunder (Yankees minor league affiliate) have offered him a free tickets for the rest of the season.
(Trenton, NJ) - Upon hearing the news that future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre had been traded to the New York Jets, the Trenton Thunder, the Double A affiliate of the New York Yankees, offered the former Green Bay Packer season tickets for the remainder of the 2008 Thunder season.

"This is a big transition for Brett and his family, and the Thunder wanted to ensure they would feel welcome in the Garden State from day one," said Thunder Assistant General Manager Greg Coleman. The New York Jets play their home games in East Rutherford, NJ which is approximately an hour drive from Trenton.

You know the crazy thing. The Jets were going to give away free tickets this season before they got Favre.

Odd how that happens.

The odds of Favre ever showing up at a Thunder game are slightly less than his chances were of being traded to Minnesota or Chicago.
