    Did Favre last forever because his backs looked after him?

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers running back Noah Herron hit a burglar with a bed post during a break-in at his home, according to the Brown County Sheriff's Department.

    Investigators said the incident late last Friday injured the intruder, who remains hospitalized.
    Sheriff Dennis Kocken said Herron used necessary and justifiable force in protecting his life and property.

    Investigators said Herron called police after he heard glass breaking in the lower level of his suburban Green Bay home. He reported an unknown number of people had entered the home.

    The sheriff's department said one of the intruders entered Herron's bedroom and Herron hit the person with a post he had unscrewed from his bed. Herron was not injured.

    I'm glad the writer included the last sentence. I was wondering why someone would have a spare bed post.

    Damn, that must have been a old-school bed. Ouch.

    I thought that same thing. More impressive than wacking the burgler over the head was knowing that your bed post could be unscrewed.

    In no way am I trying to make light of this, but how ironic is it that Sean Taylor grabs a fuckin machete to defend himself and it does him no good, and all Noah Herron can think to do is unscrew his bedpost and it ends up possibly saving his life.
    Jeez, life is strange sometimes. Thank God no one was hurt and tragedy was avoided.

    Maybe sean could not get his bed post unscrewed.

    Who thinks about their bed post when people are breaking in?
  9. That's why Herron went to Northwestern!

    Is that a digg on "The U"?

    I wonder if he'll add another notch to that bedpost now.
  12. Boom_70 - I wasn't intending to make a funny against "The U", rather speak to Noah's education at NWU.
