My girl, Erin, over at Love, Fun & Football has this link-up & you best believe that this Green Bay Packer loving girl is gonna partake. Anything to talk some football! Awhoo hoo!
I don't remember when my love for the green & gold started or how it started because my parents were not that much into watching football. My uncle, Kevin, was so I'm sure that I got my love of the game from him & a little guy you may know as Brett Favre. I loved Brett Favre. I wanted to marry him & until that day came, I just collected everything with his face on it. I have magazines & birthday cards & books - it's insane my collection of Favre/Packer stuff. But then one night in Dallas, I was introduced to a guy named Aaron Rodgers.
I was in love. With the mixture of Brett's tactics & Aaron's charm & talent, Brett was replaced in my heart. I know that he didn't have fun in Minnesota & that's called karma. Anywho, back to my love of the game. The first time I saw Lambeau Field in-person was for the Return to Titletown after their Super Bowl win in 1996, I cried. No jokes, I cried. It was still good ol' Lambeau, no commercializing of the stadium or field so the way it was intended. I never got that feeling around when I went back after the commercializing. Don't get me wrong, I love Lambeau but for me it doesn't have the feeling it had before.
I have not had the opportunity to attend many games - five only, Return to Titletown & the Brett Favre Induction Ceremony - but I do love sitting there in my green & gold cheering my boys on.
GO PACK GO!!!!
