Jessi George Stults Sara

The first time I ever heard of the Green Bay Packers was in 1995.  Prior to that I didn’t know much about football.  I am from Detroit…we didn’t have football.  I love telling that stupid joke.  I remember the 1984 World Series with the Detroit Tigers.  Later in the 80’s and early 90’s we had the Bad Boys from the Detroit Pistons – John Salley, Isiah Thomas, Rick Mahorn, Dennis Rodman, Joe Dumars, Vinnie Johnson & Bill Laimbeer.  Detroit had great hockey, too!  Watching Steve Yzerman, Bob Probert & Greg Stefan was very exciting.  But Football wasn’t really ever on my tv or radio.  Then I went to school in the UP.  The UP is still Michigan, but most people up there support the Green Bay Packers.  When I moved to Wisconsin I couldn’t go five feet without hearing about Brett Favre’s thumb or some other crazy fact about the Green and Gold.  Tonight I’m gonna watch the Bears.  They take on the Rams at 7:20pm.  If we can’t start winning a few more games this season I won’t hear the end of it from Sara.  She is a Packer fan and brought me to this tailgate party with the Stults.  (Why they are Packer fans I do not know…they are like me – originally from Detroit!)  But that’s how to get me to tailgate with the Pack….invite the hunks 🙂
