Before I start, you’ll have to excuse the pictures on this post, I was literally that pushed for time once the shopping started that I barely thought about taking photos. (I mean look at that shocker to start with! It does show you that it’s 3F at 1030 in the morning though!) Anyway, back to business.....
As unfortunate as this might seem, I literally had 24 hours in Green Bay and that was it. There wasn’t even enough time for me to collect the newspapers before I left. Though I would loved to have stayed alot longer and catch up with all of the people that I would have loved to have caught up with there were a few reasons why I couldn’t.Posted in: Other,
Keenly awaiting my arrival from Milwaukee, with every minute that passed by were Kathy, Tyler and Kate, our dear friends from 2007 with whom we wished we could visit more often. I say keenly because, despite the fact that I’m sure they were super keen to see me, it was 20 past 3 and the ‘Return to Titletown’ parade started at 4. In other words, we barely had a minute to waste! So, apart from the obligatory welcome hug and smiles all round it was out of my car and into theirs for the short trip to Lambeau Field. The transition was so quick that I had to wait until we got to the field itself before I could head to the bathroom and layer up more than I already had!Posted in: Other,
I think I shocked alot of people when they found out I was heading to Dallas for the Super Bowl. And, as usual, they were even more shocked once they learned I was travelling there without a ticket to the actual game itself. My philosophy was quite simple. I’m a Green Bay Packer fan from a land where most people couldn’t care less about football. The least I could do, with the Packers in the big dance, was fly to a place that’d be partying all week long as a result. If I lucked out and scored a ticket to the game then great. If I didn’t then I’d at least have dozens of bars with thousands of Packers fans to party with and really soak in the atmosphere of what could be a monumental night.
So I guess it was about 1am before we made it back to our hotel in Farmers Branch on Super Bowl night. And low and behold, Mike’s Sports Bar and Grill was still open next door. So as not to kill the mood off too quickly we, that is The Brunners and I, thought we’d pop in for one more beer before we called it a night. It’s always fun hanging out with these guys and despite the fact that I thought we were risking life and limb by being at such a place, in such an area at that time of night I enjoyed the hour or so all the same.Posted in: Other,
After a weekend and 2 good nights of sleep I can happily say I feel like I’m back in the land of the living.Posted in: Other,
