Packers Fans Change New Year’s Eve Plans

Some would say us Green Bay Packers fans are hooked on our team. A better word would be “obsessed.” It’s true. We love our green and gold through thick and thin–we survived the 1980s always hoping Bart Starr or Forest Gregg would lead the team out of the losing-season wilderness. This week, with the Packers holding a slim chance of making the playoffs with an 8-8 record, and it possibly being Brett Favre’s last game (doubt it!) the NFL moved their game with the Chicago Bears to Sunday night. That throws a wrench in Packers fans’ New Year’s Eve plans. But we’ll do what we have to do even if it includes driving across the country all night, packing a radio inside a sport coat when going out with the wife, or just sitting in front of the television instead of going to the party. It’s the Packers; it must be done.
