There's Something About Brett Favre

1/3/2008 6:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brett FavreHaving already burned through 3.2 million copies, Sports Illustrated is now releasing even more issues of its Sportsman of the Year mag, featuring Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Britney wishes her album sold like that!

The magazine did a second printing of 50,000 copies -- their first since NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt died in 2001. But that wasn't enough -- and another 100,000 copies were sent to Wisconsin to help satisfy the demand. It's not like it's the Swimsuit Issue or anything!

Favre is no stranger to being Oprah-level popular. His jersey is the best-selling jersey in the history of the NFL, and a knit cap Favre and the Packers started wearing on the sidelines this season sells for as much as $150 on eBay.

Only $150? Brit has Brett beat.

Cheap Trick    

Brett Farve is a great example of how athletes should be. He is not perfect, never claimed to be. He is humble with an amazing talent that he could be egotistical. He is generous and does not broadcast his good deeds from the highest mountain. He deals with lifes bad breaks and isn't bitter. Green Bay is lucky to have him.

SHE'S AN ATTENTION WHORE    

Of course there was an extra run needed on the magazine. When the Packers have a home game, the city of Green Bay basically shuts down for the day. All the hotels in a 50 mile area are booked solid, and game tickets are basically unavailable (there's a 10 year waiting list for season tickets). So, it sounds like the State of Wisconsin has bought out the magazine; no shock there...
