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.

Green Bay Packers Preseason In My Feelings

It was both tears spent on Brett Favre ten years ago and my co-worker Tom’s reassurance during that time that has helped me grow into the fan I am today. “No player is above the G” Tom has said. I’ll admit, since March 2018 I’ve been slightly annoyed each time someone questions “How I feel […]
