John Elway, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him
around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Broncos flag in the window.
"This house is yours for eternity, John," said God. "This is very special; not everyone
gets a house up here." John felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house.
On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a
3-story mansion with a Green and Gold sidewalk, 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous
Packers logo flag, and in every window, a Cheesehead.
John looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question.
I was an all-pro QB, I won 2 Super Bowls, and I even went to the hall of fame."
God said "so what do you want to know, John?"
"Well, why does Brett Favre get a better house than me?"
God chuckled and said, "John, that's not Brett Favre's house, it's mine."
