The Morning After the Morning After

My team, the Green Bay Packers have hit their stride. They are the glue that hold Wisconsin together. Sure the mighty (?) Bears are miles to the south, but where is their heart? Just remembering Favre popping DD on his shoulder Sunday brings a smile to my face! The joy those fellas were experiencing certainly helped them forget that, darnitall, their (our?) record stands at just 2-4.

Sure it's been 10 years since we poured on to the streets of Madison, in my case (feel free to insert hometown here), wanting to share the news with our neighbors, that yes, the Green Bay Packers, would return to the Super Bowl. The years may have passed, but the water stills runs green and gold in Wisconsin. If I may be so bold as to speak for the state, we still think there could be a fairy tale ending to Brett's career. Some miracles here, some non-career ending injuries there...and we are all set.

Ok, moving on...I think it is in our best interest to bring some intensity for the home team. Having been lucky enough to enjoy games at the hallowed Lambeau Field, I feel there is some room for improvement when it comes to the crowd. There are the folks who are first-timers - so excited - they are screaming at the top of their lungs when it's 3rd and 10 and the PACKERS have the ball! Errrrrr.....Or the other end of the equation are those lifers who might benefit from some solid couch time and flat screen to catch the game at home. They seem to have lost their passion. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe these folks are SO passionate, they have to sit on their hands to keep from crying? I will continue to develop my theory.

Nonetheless, greetings from Green Bay Packer land...peace out!
