The Green Bay Packers are ready to play their second game in a row on a Thursday as they head to Dallas to take on the Dallas Cowboys. WHAT A GAME! Both of these NFC teams sit at 10-1 heading in to the game. Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo, a Wisconsin native, grew up watching and idolizing Packers Quarterback Brett Favre. It will be a great matchup. Could even be a peak in to the NFC Championship game! Packers Cowboys tickets are going for a small fortune as fans of America's two teams buy their plane tickets to see this game firsthand. It will be a little warmer than the Ice Bowl I suppose. And Romo is ready to play better ball than he did earlier in the year.
NFL.com has a little post on "A Tale of Two Quarterbacks". Both awfully cute AND talented; but I gotta go with my boy Favre on this one. The Packers may be underdogs, but they have won 14 of their last 15 games, including a seven road game winning streak. They will keep this rolling on through the Lonestar State.
Oh, but wait - you might miss the game if you don't have the NFL Network or live in Milwaukee, Green Bay or Dallas. THE BIGGEST GAME OF THE NFL SEASON!! The NFL sure likes to play hardball. Yes, one can leave their comfy house and watch the game at local watering hole, but I can name a number of people I personally know that this is not an option.
There are few reasons to be thankful I like in Milwaukee. This Thursday, I will mark one of them as I watch the Packers embarrass the Cowboys from the comfort of my living room.
