I bunkered down in my living room with my fellow Packers fan Caroline today and watched the Packers beat the Bears to win the NFC Championship and earn the right to play a Superbowl XLV. Caroline brought over all of the Wisconsin necessities: A port wine cheese ball made in Kaukauna, WI (where I lived for a few years); cheddar from Weyauwega, WI; summer sausage from Oshkosh, WI; and Packer-themed cupcakes (not from WI, but fun anyway). She also brought over some Leinenkugel’s beer from Chippewa Falls, WI and a microbrew from Horny Goat, out of Stevens Point, WI. And I had some Shine On beer from Central Waters Brewing in Amherst, WI and a variety of beers from Sand Creek Brewing in Black River Falls, WI. It was awesome!
Later on Jess came by and watched the end of the game with us. It was fun to have a girls football party where in between plays we could ponder important things like “Who is cuter? Matthews or Rodgers?” and “Did you hear that Cutler is dating Kristin Cavallari?” and rewind BJ Raji’s touchdown play 5 times so we could giggle at his dance. Fun day. AND!!!! PACKERS IN THE SUPERBOWL!!!!!!!!!!
