It has taken me a few days to get over just how fun and exciting the Green Bay Packer vs. Minnesota Vikings game was this past Sunday. Well, that and I was a bit hungover. The Vikings fans were out in Green Bay en masse. They came with their super lame purple boa's and silly Helga hats. Nice try folks. I will admit the rivalry does add a little magic to the day.
This being the last Milwaukee Green Bay Packers ticket holder game of the season; the fans were leaving Milwaukee early in the morning, driving the two hours as the sun rose over Lake Michigan to Lambeau Field.
The Green Bay Packers worked efficiently and effectively on both sides of the ball. They held the Vikings to ZERO points; a feat which hadn't been done to the Minnesota Vikings since 1991! Headlines have read "Nearly Perfect Packers", "Favre, Packers Torch Vikings" or simply "Packers 34, Vikings 0" from the AP.
Brett Favre passed another milestone Sunday, joining Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks in N.F.L. history to throw for more than 60,000 career yards.
