Packers Fan Memories

A personal autograph session with the legendary Reggie White...$100. Crossing the Atlantic Ocean to spend your honeymoon at Lambeau Field...$1000. Getting engaged in the same end zone that Bart Starr scored the game-winning touchdown in the 'Ice Bowl'...Priceless. It's all here as Packers fans tell us about some of their most memorable moments backing the Green and Gold in our latest installment of 'Packers Fan Memories.'

I donated $100 to meet Reggie White. I waited and waited in line to meet him. While waiting, I heard that Reggie had left after being told he had seen everyone with a ticket. His wife, Sara, noticed that I did not get to see Reggie. She asked me if I could get to the airport in Green Bay. After we got to the airport, I noticed a van pull up and out came Reggie White. Sara took a picture of us and e-mailed it to me. Reggie also signed my Packer helmet and apologized for the misunderstanding.

I have been a Packers fan ever since the 70's when they started televising football on TV over here in England. My wife and I paid our first visit to Lambeau Field on our honeymoon in 2000, where we saw the Packers beat the San Francisco 49'ers in a great game. The following day I was lucky enough to meet LeRoy Butler, a moment I will never forget. We have returned to Lambeau every season since to see a game, and I can not wait for the new season!

Coach Starr was coming off the field and I asked him for a photo. He was busy but said okay. Months later, my friend Steve, a Bart Starr TV show employee, asked Bart after the show to autograph the picture that I had blown up to an 18"X 21" poster. Bart declined until he saw the poster. He said that he needed a good marker and that he would take it home. After returning from a Detroit game that week, he returned the poster with the words "To Bruce, an avid fan, best wishes always, Bart Starr."

My twin and I have been die-hard cheeseheads for some time now. For Christmas last year we received tickets to the Packers-Broncos game. We drove up that day, honking at fellow cheeseheads. We couldn't contain our excitement once we got there. We lost our voices screaming, especially when we heard that Minnesota lost to the Cardinals, allowing the Pack to regain the division title. We were so excited that we jumped in front of TV cameras and screamed the whole 1/2 mile back to our car. It was a dream come true -- watching Favre and the legendary Packers!

On our second date, I found out this man I had just started seeing had season tickets to the Packers and jokingly I said "I hope you realize that now you are going to marry me!" A little less than nine months later, Dave proposed to me in the end zone at Lambeau!
