You know about this by now, but it must be addressed. Well, it seems that some kids wear their Green Bay Packers clothing by choice. Others, not so much. When 36-year-old Matthew Kowald's 7-year-old son refused to wear a Packers jersey during Green Bay's playoff game with Seattle on Saturday, Kowald did the rational, mature thing: He tied up the boy and taped the jersey to his body.
Sheriff's Lt. Wayne Smith said Mathew Kowald was cited for disorderly conduct for the incident involving his 7-year-old son at their home in Pardeeville this past weekend. Kowald was accused of restraining the boy for an hour with tape and also taping a jersey onto him during that time.
Kowald's wife has since served him with a restraining order, meaning that he can't have any contact with the family, presumably until after Favre retires. I tend to love it when people employ the "What Would Homer Simpson Do?" parental handbook.
