Jake's Journal: Garrett Weber-Gale

By Mike Jacobs

An Olympic swimmer from Fox Point competes Sunday. Garrett Weber-Gale is not only a great swimmer, he's also a funny guy. He put together an Internet video, after Brett Favre announced his retirement. "We had a swim meet actually, and we did these little skits in between to showcase all the swimmers, so I had to do this little skit. And I figured what better day to do it, because it was literally days after Favre retired, so it was perfect timing," Weber-Gale said. In a telephone interview, Weber-Gale said, "He's been a hero of mine so it's kind of mixed feelings for me right now about the whole situation. I don't know quite what to make of it. Plus being overseas. I haven't heard all the stories. We'll see, the Packers will be fine in the future."
