Soooo....You Wanna Play/Watch/Enjoy Some FOOTBALL ?!

By
Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

   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 Green Bay 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 !

   This has been a "good sport" blog post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with EXP Realty LLC.  Thank you Anna Banana Kruchten Broker/Owner, CRB, CRS  it was a good break this afternoon to write this post !

How well I remember those days Anna Banana Kruchten Broker/Owner, CRB, CRS ...my Mother calling from the kitchen: "How Many More Minutes ?"  

My Dad in the Living room: "Just 10 more minutes"

Mom's answer; "That's what you said half an hour ago !"

Hi there Sally, Your Packers are taking on our Seahawks tomorrow. Mom is our biggest sports fan in the house - along with my brother in law. While, I do hope our Seahawks win, I'll be thinking about you. You should put this in Bananatude - that's where the football party is going on today. :)

Hi Sally and David- I'll be pooped after watching the Texans but wouldn't miss the Seahawks vs the Packers for anything. I grew up watching football and going to the games. Love it!!!!!

Haha your parents were the opposite of mine.  Mom was the Vikings football fanatic and my Dad didn't like the game! Either way it's all good, both of us got the bug!  And of course the packers and vikings were rivals (still are) for year....all the better!!

Morning Sally.

I read Carol's post just a few minutes ago.  I can picture the both of you routing for each team.  Regardless it's going to be a good one for sure

Good morning Sally. Good luck today! If it can't be the Bears it might as well be the Packers. Enjoy your day!

Good grief, Sally... I shut off Active Rain overnight and come back this morning to find nothing but football talk! I used to be very into football, but after the Colin Kapernick nonsense, I stopped watching and somehow never came back to it. Have no real idea who's playing whom or whether we are in semi-finals or some other stage of the season. Enjoy watching your Packers.

This is definitely going to be a battle and I love how spirited Packer backers are, we have plenty of them here for the winter.

Well I've already wished luck to Carol and her Seahawks...but I wish you luck with your Packers too! I'm not invested either way (since my Patriots ended their season).  Only one of the teams can win...enjoy the game and the party!

You KNOW the Pack will be on at our house, Sally ... and Marilyn will have her Packer-wear on (courtesy of Sally and David). I’m sure you’ll be hearing from her thru-out the game. For today, I’ll be a supportive husband and cheer the Pack on .. next year our Bear vs Packer bets are back on!
