12-year-old wears Brett Favre jersey for 1,581 days.

David Witthoft finally shunned his Brett Favre jersey for a red shirt for the first time in 1,581 days. The 12-year-old boy wore the No. 4 jersey every day since receiving it as a gift for Christmas in 2003.

David's father, Chuck Witthoft, said Monday that his son's last day wearing the jersey was April 23 on his 12th birthday. Witthoft conceded his son was starting to become more concerned about his appearance after the jersey barely came down to his belt line.

His mother, Carolyn, had washed the jersey every other day and mended it when needed. » Article here
