Does anyone remember this NFL draft day classic when quarterback Brett Favre received his phone call as he was drafted in the second round by the Atlanta Falcons way back in 1991?

This picture says a lot as Favre receives his life-changing draft phone call. Note the incredibly messy, what appears to be a dorm room, the “NFL draft” written on people’s t-shirts and the interesting capri/mom-short denim bottoms Favre is wearing.
Advance the clock 23 years later and now Favre, filthy rich, I’m sure, looks like a homeless dude. A homeless dude who works out though – note the muscular arms he is rocking in that out-of-style muscle shirt. Too many years of wearing NFL uniforms has damaged Favre’s sense of style.

Call Joan Rivers and the fashion police immediately. If Favre is lucky, he’ll end up with a fashion makeover and look like that guy in the middle of this photo.
All joking aside, Favre had amazing career with the NFL from 1991 through 2010, spending the majority of his memorable time as a quarterback with the Green Bay Packers. He had brief stints in Atlanta where he originally was drafted, and finished out his final few years with the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.
