Have you ever been teased for wearing the same shirt two days in a row? If so, you are absolutely going to enjoy the following story about a Wisconsin kid, who has worn an Aaron Rodgers jersey for more than 1,000 consecutive days. Yes, you read that right. David Pehl, a 6th-grader from Holmen, Wisconsin, has worn the same article of clothing for nearly three years running. Apparently, Pehl is aiming to break a record set by someone else who wore a Brett Favre jersey for more than four years. And is if that wasn't already crazy enough, Pehl's entire family is Minnesota Vikings fans, which makes seeing him in a Packers jersey everyday even more unbearable. "Being a Viking family we tried to convert him, but once we knew he wasn't going to convert we said OK," David's father, Dave, said. The dad helped paint a "Packers sanctuary" (see: above) for the kid, but did it while wearing a Vikings jersey, so at least, if nothing else, he's a good parent. "I thought a year maybe, and here we are almost three years later and he's still doing it," Dave said. For the record, the Pehl family allegedly hand washes the jersey every other day, to avoid developing an awful stench. Oh, and their youngest son has now decided to try and follow in his brother's footsteps, by wearing a Vikings jersey for four straight years. This house is obviously full of ambition.
