Brett Favre can still zip a pass into tight spaces. Now if his receivers were back in their prime, ol’ No. 4 might have had a few more completions Sunday at his charity flag football game. It was all just for fun, of course. There are no more NFL comebacks for the 45-year-old. He returned to Green Bay to have his jersey retired by the Packers on Saturday, the same night he was inducted into the franchise’s Hall of Fame. The event marked the emotional end to a long reconciliation between Favre and the Packers. Sunday was all about having fun at Camp Randall Stadium on the University of Wisconsin campus. – AP
