Five Essential Packer Possessions Every Loyal Fan Must Have
Green Bay Packer football fans are some of the most loyal fans in the world. Due to its size, this tiny town would have never become an NFL powerhouse if a franchise were attempted in this day and age.
But the Packer legacy has transcended both space and time, and is not only one of the most successful teams in the NFL but the ONLY team literally owned by its fans.
#1. A share of Packer stock is one of five essential things that every loyal Packer fan should have.
#2. Green Bay jersey, sweatshirt or hat - preferably one that fits. A dog models a green and gold ball cap with just enough patience for a quick click.
#3. A supportive partner - There are not enough brats in the world that could be grilled to compensate for a non-loyal Packer spouse, and yet indeed there are many of us who have to deal with this reality. Luckily, there is a support group... and it holds nearly 80,000. It's called Lambeau Field!
#4. Beer and Brats: Wisconsin is full of great beers, from the mass appeal of the Miller brands of Milwaukee to the Spotted Cows of New Glarus to the Leinenkugel's of the great Wisconsin north. And when it comes to brats, you cannot beat the following brands for flavor and authenticity: Usinger, Johnsonville and Lodi Sausage Co. Let's start grilling!
#5. Cheesehead - the now ubiquitous Cheese hat known as "cheesehead" is everywhere. It's story is one for the history books. And it would have made for a great episode on Shark Tank, had the TV show been around in the late 1990's. Like American Express, you should not leave home without it if you're heading to a game, whether it be at Lambeau Field or at your neighbor's back yard cook-out. Of course it looks silly, that's the point. Wear it with pride. Packer fans take our football seriously. Ourselves? Not so much.
