Well, it was tuff growing up as a Packer fan in chicago, but it happened anyway. It helped that for most of my life, the bears had nothing on the packers.
I got into football around the age of 8, my dad, who also grew up in chicago area was also a lifelong packer fan. I was 8 in 1990, and the first Halloween custome I truely picked out myself was that of Don Majikowski, the Majik Man. I distinctly remember listening to the game on the radio a couple years later when Don got hurt, and this joke of a player named Brett Favre came in the game in relief. All I could think about was that I hoped Don got better, so this Favre guy didnt have to spend to much time in there for my beloved Pack. Well, its all History from there, I Bought a Reggie White Jersey as soon as they signed him. For 16 years, Favre has been surrounded by under rated players who helped the Packers return to Glory.
It is great to see them back to the NFC championship game. Its hard being a packer fan in chicago, expecially with the bears going to the SB last season. I am just glad the bears fans only had 1 offseason to gloat though. The football world has righted itself.
