The shock waves of the news of the retirement of Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre have made it across the Atlantic and hit two members of the U.S. Women's National Team. Wisconsin native Leslie Osborne, and Milwaukee resident Kate Markgraf (married to a Wisconsin-born and HUGE Packers fans Chris) are likely feeling just a little emptiness. The duo definitely is down with the sadness of the Packer Nation, but both are glad to see Brett go out after such a great season. Osborne reports that all her friends back in Wisconsin are very sad and says, "It's amazing to see how influential one person can be on a community. I'm happy for him, though, and I am glad he's walking away and feels good about it. He's done more than enough."
