January 11, 2015 - My Heroes Have Always Been Packers
My favorite boyfriend grew up in Lubbock, the heart of the Llano Estacado… so he was a bit out of place as a young Green Bay Packers fan. But he never wavered.
See, an All American running back at Texas Tech University by the name of Donny Anderson caught 8-year-old MikeChetty’s attention and then went on to play for the Packers just two years before they beat the Dallas Cowboys in a legendary sub-freezing -temperature playoff game that became known as the Ice Bowl.
Not long afterwards, another Packer superstar, Jerry Kramer, penned a book called “Instant Replay.” It was basically his memoirs of the 1967 season under Vince Lombardi. Mike devoured the book and gave it credit for helping shape his own character.
And he has been a Packer Fan in Cowboy Country all his life.
Less than a half hour before kickoff this morning, when the Packers and Cowboys would again square off in a playoff game at Lambeau Field, we decided that we needed to create a Packers Fan profileicture for his facebook page so we did.
There was a little bit of sweating going on this afternoon at our house, but no explanation is necessary.
He's happy. I'm Happy. This is The Good Stuff.
