Green Bay - Archie Manning says Brett Favre loves to get up in front of a crowd when they're together to tell people this story.

When Favre and his brothers were growing up in southern Mississippi, they had jobs mowing lawns on Sundays. But Favre didn't much care for the chore so he would ditch his brothers and sneak back to the truck to turn on the radio and listen as one of his idols played quarterback for the New Orleans Saints.

It's not that the Saints were any good, either. Manning never played a winning season in New Orleans from 1972-'82. Still Favre, in elementary school and middle school at the time, followed the two-time Pro Bowl passer who was from Drew, Miss., and played his college ball at Ole Miss.
