Go Pack Go!!

I don't really get into football but since I live in Wisconsin and the Packers are playing in the Super Bowl, I have good reason to planning to cheer them on this afternoon.

I watched the Packers' last two games from start to finish.  That's quite an accomplishment for me. I'm normally bored out of my skull when sitting in front of the TV trying to be a sport, watching eternally long football games.  

I've applied myself to learning the game in recent years.  Presently, I can track the football during a game.  For years, I sat stupidly, staring cluelessly at the mass of helmets, uniforms and bodies.

Today I'm wearing green and gold.
Since I'm not a diehard Packer fan and haven't earned the right to wear their true colors, I'm humbly wearing shirts, pants and shoes in soft shades of gold and subtle tones of sage green.

In conclusion, I'm approaching the Super Bowl with strong convictions that the best team will win.  As an aspiring Wisconsin fan, I believe that's the Green Bay Packers.

Well, Ms. Cheesehead, I believe your team came through for you...

For me, it was the Black Eyed Peas all the way.

NATASHA: Talk about a half-time show!!! How do they do it???

The Pack came through for all of their fans, die-hard and otherwise.

SARIE: A die-hard fan like you deserves praise for your never-ending support. I bet you are tired! The second half of the game was anything but relaxing. Things got pretty messy, didn't they.

The lack of control we possess as spectators is challenging for sure. I'd rather take a beating than endure the ups and downs of an event I'm emotionally invested in (from the sidelines) and can't do anything to influence.

Give me a game with zero mistakes and a substantial lead right away and I'm settled in for the duration.

Maybe I'm not cut out to be a fan. What do you think!!!????

The Packers deserved to be the winners for more reasons than I can list. It's great to live in Wisconsin so near Green Bay. What a celebration they're having and will continue to have.

Ride the waves of the Packs success Sarie! You've been behind them forever!

Have a great week, my friend!

Shaddy: Of the three, I'll take the cell phone any day over the others. Have had bad, bad reactions to the others. The only reaction I've had at my cell phone is frustrated anger.
