I grew up watching Bart Starr (15), Ray Nitschke (66), Paul Hornung (5) and Jim Taylor (31) with my Dad on Sunday afternoons. And on December 31, 1967, I distinctly remember watching the Ice Bowl against Dallas, the city where I live now. I have a video tape replay of the game on my shelf and offer to play it for anyone here in Texas. And I remember Vince Lombardi who molded that team and myself.

Watching the 1996 NFL playoffs with my son was one of my most special moments as a Packers fan. The Packers went on to win the Super Bowl! I was very happy to have shared this with my son! The Green Bay Packers are the greatest!

I was standing at the gate were the Packers players enter the practice field. This was the first year they took the bus to practices. A few players got off, and they were followed by Brett Favre and LeRoy Butler. With my Florida State windbreaker on, I went up to Mr. Butler and asked for a photograph with him. He kindly replied yes. I have always been a LeRoy Butler fan and always will be. I hope to see him as an assistant or coach in the near future in Green Bay.

In December 2003 I got to go to my very first game at Lambeau Field. I was about 14 at the time. I went with my Uncle Jeff and two cousins, Megan and Michael. At the two minute warning, the Packers were beating the Broncos 31-3, but the Cardinals trailed the Vikings 12-17. The crowd fell silent for the last play of the game. Someone yelled, "touchdown!" And the crowd went wild. After the game the crowd continued to cheer. Brett Favre left the field and turned toward the crowd with his hands triumphantly in the air.

I grew up in Green Bay and have been to all the big games even the recent Super Bowls. However, the most unique experiences was at a game in 1999 and actually, it was in the parking lot before the game. Strolling through the lot I see an ex-player. I yell, "Tork ... Eric Torkelson!" He is one of my favorite players from the late 70's and he is one of those guys, who always gave you all he had on the field. Everyone at the party looked at me and said, "who"? Eric turned around and was pleasantly amazed I knew who he was. Only at Lambeau Field!
