It's that time of year. No, not Thanksgiving. No, not Christmas. It's the Chicago Bears vs the Green Bay Packers! This coming weekend everything in Green Bay will come to a halt on Sunday from noon until about 3:30PM. The streets of Green Bay will be empty and the bars will be full.
Unless you've experienced it, it's hard to describe. If you're planning on an open house, plan on talking to yourself. Taking out buyers, they must be from out of town.
There are quite a few Bear's fans in Green Bay and vice versa. It is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, rivalries in pro football! There is usually a lot of talking smack and wearing of the colors. There are also a lot of lunch bets. Most of it is in good fun. No matter who wins, it's a great time.
My children will go to the game. I will be watching the game from my comfortable easy chair in my nice warm living room. To get in the mood, it stand in my own line to use the bathroom, charge myself $6 for a beer and, after a great play, I throw popcorn on myself.
Let's hope it's a good game. Go Bears!
