What does Kitty have to say?


 


Green & Gold DNA

For some people, becoming a Packer fan is a choice. But for most of us, it's just part of who we are. Some people come from families where their second toe is longer than their big toe. Others have a genetic predisposition toward freckles, or bushy eyebrows. And then there's the Packer gene. For those of us born within certain latitude and longitudes, the love of the Packers has always just been there. It may even go deeper than religion. You hear of lapsed Catholics, but never a lapsed Packer fan. My earliest memories are of the Packers in the glory years, but for some reason I don't remember the glory part so much. I remember the yelling... because despite their talent, their were always plays that didn't turn out quite right. There are stories of one neighbor throwing an ottoman through a window to show his disgust. More ingrained in my memory are the not-so-glory years. The Dan Devine years (feeling fine with Devine? Not so much). The Bart Starr years. A great player, a great Rawhide Boys Ranch pitchman, but not so great a coach. Remember the bumper stickers that read "The Pack Is Back"? They were more wishful thinking than anything else. Then there were the Favre years. Sweet sweet memories. I choose not to think about how that tale ended. At least not right now. And now, it's another chance for glory. My fingers are crossed, and the ottomans have been tied down for safety purposes.

My father is from Green Bay. I grew up hating football because of all the frustrated yelling and swearing he did while watching football on TV (likely during all those years when the Packers weren't doing so well). I remember thinking, why does he bother when it upsets him so much. But now I watch football and I understand

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
