ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?




I know this post might be a little goofy or random... but here goes:)
Ok so I know that these photos will get a rise out of some... sorry. I have always been a Packer fan... but what I also realized in the past 2 football seasons is that I truly am also a Brett Favre fan. I get that he retired... I get that, but I also get that He is a HUGE part of the reason the Packers had their glory years in the 90's. You just don't let a legend go like that... and last week's Vikings game proved it when Favre tossed a 50 yard pass into the end zone with 2 seconds left on the clock to win the game. It was done in true Favre fashion. So we are ready for the hype before and the drama that will play out next Monday on Monday night football between the Vikings and the Packers.
So the story behind the jerseys... it is kind of funny. Greg knows what a Favre fan I am. So last year for my birthday he bought me the Jets jersey. I never would have asked for it, but it was kind of fun. Really, the boys wear it mostly on games days:) Then this year I just had a feeling that the Vikings jersey was next and I was right. My dad is the only other one in the family that feels the same way about Favre as I do. So you can imagine the eyes rolling when Greg and I came down the steps to watch the Packers game last Sunday with the Jets and Viking's #4 jerseys on. It was pretty funny.
So we will see how it all plays out come Monday.... I think it will be a really good game. I bet some of you never knew I was a football fan. I actually love kicking back on a cool Sunday afternoon to watch some football. Now, don't get me wrong, I like watching one game not all 5 like the men of the house would love to do:)

My husband and I are HUGE STEELERS FANS!!! I love football. I find myself asking my husband if we can hury and leave church so we can catch the first quarter. I know there's a lot of controversy about Farve, but I say that until you are in someone else's shoes, you really shouldn't critizise. (or however you spell that) Have you seen the new comercials Farve does with the not being able to make decisions and purchasing a t.v.? I thought that was hilarious, but I couldn't believe he actually did those comercials!
