    One of my all time favorite college players is Ty Detmer. He was BYU's quarterback when I was around 10 or 11ish. I remember watching him win the Heisman on television and also when BYU beat #1 Miami in 1990. When he got drafted by the Packers they became my team and they have been ever since. I am now 37 and am finally making the trek from Southern Utah to Lambeau to see my first game on November 6th. So dang excited!!!!

    Thanks! Been a Packer Fan since my Pop had Coach Lombardi speak at a Rotary Meeting in '65 or '66. I was a Dorky 12 year old. I couldn't go. I asked my Pop to "give Coach my regards.." He did. He said to my Pop in his Coach voice.."You give your son my regards too!" I have been a Green Bay Packer Fan ever since.

    So I went on with life, and two decades ago, I lost my first wife to Melanoma. It was horrible. But I did get a second chance with my former Program Director and Boss at the radio station I worked for, She was born and raised in Antigo, schooled at Platteville in R & T, and we have been married for 20 years, on 5/3, Her Birthday too! Went to Lambeau for the 1st preseason game 2009. We have a brick there with our names. Packer Fans Forever.

    I just remembered this thread and wanted to share what I think is the strangest Packer fan story I ever heard. A fellow Packer fan I watch games with received as a gift from his mother a Packer's football uniform at the age of seven or eight. Where this woman got a Packers football uniform in New Jersey in the 70's is a mystery to me. I told him a Packers uniform in the 70's must have been distressed merchandise and she probably got it real cheap.

    Well if it was from the 72 team, they weren't too bad (10-4) :) The Packers actually had a few decent players in the 70's, just not enough to do much.

    BTW, does that Jersey still fit your friend? ;)

    To me the 70's and 80's was a non event as far as the Packers were concerned. Being here on the east coast I only was able to see two or three Packers games a year. There was no internet, no cable TV, no satellite TV.

    Ohhh the "good old days". I kind of miss it, it was the time I grew up in. Of course, without the internet, reading this post would be rather difficult. Lucky for all of us, Al Gore was a genius! :coffee:

    Come on, you don't know the "Al Gore and the internet story?" :sneaky:

    It all started during a March 8, 1999, interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, as Gore was preparing to make a run for the Democratic nomination for president.

    "But it will emerge from my dialogue with the American people. I’ve traveled to every part of this country during the last six years. During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

    As much as I like the Packers, I have to credit the discovery of sex for recreation and not just procreation a bit higher.

    That's awesome you got to be so close and watch games in person. The closest I have been is when I stand next to the tv. Lol

    It began for me at the end of 1970, seeing those green jerseys and yellow gold pants. Then while going through elementary, junior high and high school, I stood up for the Packers when they weren't very good.
    Learning to read Dick and Jane,thrilled to find Bart Starr in the library. Learning art, just to paints the Packers helmet. Held my Packer binder, Packers pencils and eraser. Football cards, Packers blanket, kids uniform and helmet

    As a young adult I went on a business trip to Tomahawk (Case Equipment Facility) for work....Everything/Everyone bled Packers. Was a great experience.
