End of January

GREEN BAY PACKERS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!! YAY!!!! SUPERBOWL SUNDAY IS NEXT SUNDAY!!!!
GREEN BAY PACKERS!!!! WHOO-HOOO!
Sorry! I got excited!
       I have been a Packer fan since before Favre started to retire the first time and now we are going to the Superbowl! Even if we do not win it is nice that they are there! Here is a funny true story about being a Green Bay Packer fan:
            My niece, Beth, was a Packer fan waaaay before I was. I watched football growing up but my family are die-hard Cowboys fans and I wasn't. One day I watched a Packers game with Beth and they became MY TEAM after that! So we spent years watching Packers games together and everyone in the family knew about our passion for the Packers. Our family still were majority Cowboys fans.
           One Monday night I rushed to my sisters house to watch the Packers game with Beth. As I was finding the game on the television another niece, Krissy, came rushing into the house. "Turn the game on! My team is playing!" she started yelling. I was dumbfounded! Come to find out that Krissy was a Packer fan and I NEVER KNEW IT! Years of watching the Packers and I never knew that my niece was rooting for MY TEAM! AND.....she didn't know I was a Packers fan either!!! SO this Superbowl Sunday is a special time for both of us:
GREEN BAY PACKERS ARE IN THE SUPERBOWL!!
