Football in Wisconsin is sort of a "Religious Experience." My parents were married were 56 years when my Father passed away...my Mom always said it was only 28...the other 28 my Dad watched the Packers...and there is some truth to that !
Mom also said if anyone ever wanted to do nuclear testing in Wisconsin...they could do it during a Packer game...No one but no one is outside !
One of our niches is in Relocation....and we often get calls at the start of the season from recently relocated families with the sound of amazement in the voice on the phone..."EVERYONE is wearing Packer -wear....in the grocery store...and just EVERYWHERE !" Yes....we have come to think of it as the norm....and every year we add to our Packer Wardrobe,...or to someone else's...here you will see Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi and his lovely Marilyn who met us at the Wisconsin/Illinois Border...to watch the Packers BEAT the Bears.
My own Packer Wear includes earrings and a variety of shirts with a little glitz ! David has a collection as well. Here you are Carol Williams ...we are going to FREEZE out Seattle tomorrow !
It is tradition for me to start every game with a "Vitamin"....that is a Bloody Mary Wisconsin Style...and depending on where we are...it has a lot of garnishes ! There are contests in southeastern Wisconsin periodically for the BEST Bloody Mary and garnishes range from hamburgers to shrimp....and of course Cheese sometimes in the form of cubes...,other times it could be a mozzarella whip ! Have to get in all those vitamins to be able to cheer The Pack on to Victory of course ! And....but of course...a "made in Milwaukee" beer chaser.
We go to different places to watch/cheer...with different people...and there are pools, prizes, food, adult beverages and wildly loyal fans.
If the team with the most passionate fans wins....we have nothing to worry about tomorrow. But just in case...Sleep tight Aaron and the Boys....Bring It ...We are ready for a SUPER BOWL !
