Green Bay Packers: The Bus

By all accounts, our Packer Family arrived by the bus load to the LA Memorial Coliseum this past Sunday. Some fans reported the ratio of Packer fans to Ram fans was 5 to 1 and it sounded that way to me! I feel like our defensive was driving 80 in a 55. Obvious no parking […]

Green Bay Packers: Big Chill

My husband and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary tailgating with friends this past Monday.  We arrived at 2 pm to an alive parking lot; a group to our right was already playing flip cup and Frisbee.

A graduating class […]

Green Bay Packers Week One: Chicago Dogs

The first Packer game I attended at Lambeau was versus the Bears in 2002. I saved $500 for two tickets, a bus ride to and from Dubuque, IA, and a free tailgate. My boyfriend at the time opted out, so I went with a friend. Despite that fact, I ended up marrying the same guy […]
