I'm the beneficiary of a last-minute, late-notice fluke, the result of which is that I'm heading to Football Mecca (a.k.a. Lambeau Field) tonight! I will watch the Green Bay Packers play the Chicago Bears, and see Brett Favre throw his 423rd (and I wonder how many more -- every one is a record* now) touchdown pass against da said Bears. With me will be my mom, stepdad, a sister, a daughter, and a friend of the daughter.
It's better. The FABULOUS UW Marching Band will provide the half-time entertainment.
Plus, it's October 7th and I wonder if I'll even need a sweatshirt... better bring one, just in case.
Go Pack Go! Favrecandüit!
*Yes, I do know that Brett's also on the verge of taking the interception record. He'll be the first to hold the record for TDs and the record for INTs simultaneously -- that's gotta be some other kind of record, they just need to make up a clever name! It could be the THAT'S (HAIR-PULLING, NAIL-BITING, HAIR-GRAYING) ENTERTAINMENT record! I wouldn't trade the last 17 football years in Green Bay for anything!
