Growing up in WI, I bleed Green and Gold and I have to say, I'm pretty happy! I want to say I'm not surprised, but I am a little. I mean, come on! They just barely clinched a play-off spot in the Wildcards and now they're Super Bowl bound!!!!!!
But then again, it is hard for 2 teams to meet 3 times and the one team win all 3 games in a season. I'm pretty sure the law of averages keeps going down with every meeting.
I am just sooooo excited!!!! After all, my "brother" plays for the Packers (#87 Jordy Nelson).
Well, okay, we're not exactly related and we've never met, but he shares the same name as my real brother!
When I claim him...
Love you, Jordy!
And while I loved Brett Favre, how cool is Aaron Rodgers?!!!!! In a way I can understand what happened with the quarterback switch 3 or so years ago. Brett's getting older and the Packers had this amazing young quarterback that they were probably going to lose unless he got the chance at a starting position. Rather than have a quarterback shootout, they pressured #4 to retire at the "top" of his game and gracefully give up his position. Well, anyway, obviously that didn't happen! I was a huge #4 fan until he sneakily made his way to MN.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I speak for all Cheeseheads when I say #12 has made us proud!
