Hi...I became a fan when I was 8 yrs old....I grew up in Ma and won tickets to the Patriots/Packers game and beng 8 the best way I knew to get under my older brothers skin was to root for the Packers since he was and is a die hard Pats fan. As I grew up and learned about the history etc how could I not remain one?? I am 51 now and have a Packer Room in my house, I have 2 Packer Tattoos and the top thing on my bucket list after having open heart surgery was to get to Lambeau....I succeeded in taking that off the list following my surgery and went to see the Pack play the Pats at Lambeau...we lost but that was ok cuz I WAS AT LAMBEAU. I have gone every year since then....mostly to the Bears games...and I went to the Wildcard game last year. To say I feel blessed is an understatement. I went to my first Training Camp this summer....and took my 9 yr old grandson. BEST EXPERIENCE of my life...seeing his awe as he got autographs and had Andy Mulumba ride his bike to practice and Sam Barrington ride his bike after practice was amazing. My grandson who was following in his dads side and borderline Pats fan is now a true cheesehead!! He lives and breathes Packer Football now...he reads about them and is now fixated on his Bike Buddy Sam Barrington who took time to really talk to him. I was and always will be a GREEN BAY PACKER FAN!!! (And yes I am an owner too!! )

Welcome Kate. Great story.

My daughter turned away from the Packers to try and do the same thing. Dallas of of teams.

I had my son up in Green Bay when he was about 9. We talked about bringing his bike up the next year. he thought it over and decided not to take it. But he loved the idea of a big guy riding it.
