    So here's the deal, I am a hardcore Redskins fan, but this Sunday I am going to be throwing a Packers themed Super Bowl party. The reason for doing so is I can not stand the Steelers or Steelers fans. For some reason northern VA seems to have more Steelers fans than Redskins fans and that really pisses me off.

    One of my good friends who is going to be attending the party is a "hardcore Steelers fan". The reason I put that into quotations is because last year he was a "hardcore Saints fan". There is nothing that I would hate more than for him to be happy at another Super Bowl. He doesn't know that the party is going to be Packer themed.

    Here is where I need help from you guys. I don't need help just for decorating for a Packers party, I really want to know how to be a Packers fan. For instance, every time Chris Cooley makes a play everyone yells "COOOOOOLEYYYYY" and every time the Redskins score we sing "Hail to the Redskins." Are there any things like this that I could do during the game?

    Any advice on how to transform the party into a true Packers party will be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks and GO PACK!

    Chant the Packers chant which is "Go Pack Go!"

    Yell "Kuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhn!" whenever running back John Kuhn gets the ball no matter how many yards he gains.

    You do know that our colors are green and gold (yellow), right? So buy green and yellow streamers, ballons and other party decorations and go nuts with those.

    Cheese. I hear that is very popular. But it has to be Extra Extra Sharp, not the wussy stuff.

    Have a beatbox play Todd Rundgren's "Bang the Drum All Day" whenever the Packers Score.
    Have the folks chant "GO PACK GO!" when the Packers are in the lead.
    Get people to yell "KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHN!!!" when John Kuhn makes a play.
    Serve Lemon & Lime flavored juice for the party, to go with the whole Green & Gold vibe.

    You could also put on the championship belt no matter which Packers score when they do.

    And do the Raji.

    Make sure you serve Brats too. Fried cheese and cheese curds, if they're available.

    You could also play "Fly like a Cheesehead," that "Green and Yellow" song plus a myriad of others.

    bring up the packers history to your friend and talk about how we have 2x as many championships, more hall of famers, and come from titletown where fans own a piece of their team. Should drive him crazy.

    Unless you're getting the cheese from Wisconsin (Carr Valley is my favorite), I'd say this is absolutely right. At least out here in the Pacific Northwest, you have to go "up a size" to get the local cheeses to come close to the flavor of Wisconsin cheese.

    And here's a link to a printable cutout of a block of cheese you can use for your party.

    And if your friend knows anything about the Steelers, which I doubt since you've implied he's a bandwaggoner, when you yell KUUUUHHHHHHNNNNN, he should remind you that he was on the Steelers team in 05'. A lot of us fans wish he had been given more of a chance, we love the way he plays. I'm really glad he's on such a great team and is getting an opportunity to showcase his talents though. He deserves it.

    Do you have HBO?
    DVR?
    Or On Demand?

    If you have any or all of the above, check to see if they are still playing the Vince Lombardi doc.
    If they are, be sure to watch and record it to get some history of the greatest coach in modern times. Not one of the greatest. The greatest.

    If your able to play it before the game, do so. Just tell your friend your watching a pre-game special and play it.

    Who knows? It might convert him to then root for the Pack!

    If not, then do what you can to read up on Vince before Sunday. And remind your buddy who the SB trophy is named after!

    Yeah, get Wisconsin cheese. Super sharp cheddar!!!!
    Brats (Grilled) are a must. Eat em like a hot dog, or dress em up whatever way you want. You should be able to get Johnsonville brats in VA.
    Baked Beans
    Lots of Beer and/or Whiskey.
    Pastries for dessert (if you have a homemade place that makes em)

    If the packers are playing bad. use the word "Lousy" a lot.

    You might want to make sure your beer choice reflects Wisconsin.
    There are also tons of Wisconsin microbrews.
    Those might be harder to find where you are.

    You might want to tell your friend that if he was to mail a letter from Green Bay, Wi., depending on which postal office it went through, it could be postmarked "TitleTown, USA...try doing that in Pittsburgh.

    Lots and lots of beers, bratwurst, preferrably grilled in beer, lots of cheese, preferrably cheddar, and from Wisconsin, yell KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHN everytime you spot John Kuhn (not only when he's with the ball, or on the field. No, it's not the racist slur). Sing GO PACK GO in between plays. Do the championship belt when we score, on your friends' face if they get annoying, but that's not the intent...

    Well, I think the rest has been covered...

    You have to get a Packers jersey too.

    What you wear is important since you want to bring all the good juju possible to the Packers.

    PackersRS....you were raised different than I was....grill the brats in beer? What I learned growing up was that you grill the brats, then let them marinate in a tub of hot beer.
