I have been thinking about my faovrite packer memory..and also the worst memory i have ever had. I'm just about 19, so the superbowl win is a little fuzzy in my mind. And I didnt enjoy that as much as I could have now. But my favorite memory that I enjoyed more than any other..was when the Cardinals knocked the vikings out of the playoffs, and the Packers got in. Actually that was the stretch of time is the most memorable stretch in my life. First: Favre has an amazing game on MNF after his dad dies.
Second: The Packers get the win over the Broncos, and the Cardinals knock the vikings out on the last game of the play. Packers make it in the playoffs.
Third: Me and my dad were very lucky, and got to go to the playoff game against the Seahawks. Al Harris INT in OT. And we win....

That leads me to the worst memory... 4th and 26 in philly.

Whats your Favorite, and worst memory?

My favorite memory is the Packers shutting out the Vikings 34-0 at Lambeau and my worst memory is the way that Brett Favre acted in this off season. There are too many memories to tell.

Best Memory - getting to see Lambeau Field for the first time and watching my first game there this past year.

Worst memory - the playoff loss to the Rams a few years back. I actually put post it notes on the screen where the score was displayed to cover it up. I was damn disappointed in that game.

Best memory- a bunch of them.
1A Taking my son to GB to watch training camp. He and I talked about whether or not he should bring his bike and give one of the players a ride to and from practice. (That is something a 10 yr old would think about. I certainly never considered it. We live 4 + hrs away and it would have been a real pain to take the bike with us.) I left the decision up to him and he decided not to bring his bike. He got a few autographs that day. He had so much fun we went back the next year and took a couple of his friends with us. (Still no bike.)
1B taking my Dad and son to a game. Only had 2 tickets so I wanted them to spend the day together. We all had a good time before and after the game. Wanted my son to build some good memories with his Grandfather who has since passed away.
1C Taking my son and is maternal Grandfather to the game. Once again let them build up some good memories while Grandpa was still able to do those types of things.

Worse memory was at old County Stadium. A drunk was sitting behind my wife and I was talking way too loud to a friend about how the army trained him to kill Viet Nam Vet) and if they told him to do so, he would kill the woman sitting in front of him right now. There were a couple of women so I am not sure who he was talking about. I really wanted to confront him but it would not have helped the situation. His friend finally told him to shut up and he did but he went on for about a whole quarter. I could not watch the game after that.

my favorite and worst memories are all from games that i've attended. i've had many great and not so great memories outside of the games i've attended, but the sharpest highs and lows are from the games i've seen at Lambeau.

#1 vs. the Vikins November 29, 2004 - Back and forth all game long. Longwell hits a FG with time expiring to win the game 34-31. Awesome game.

#2 November 11, 2007 - Vikings shut out Adrian Peterson and the Vikings 34-0. Also, awesome game. I was so impressed at how all the fans in attendance reacted when Peterson hurt his knee. We never want to face him, but everybody knows how special he is and what he means to the NFL.

Worst memory - November 28, 2006 - God that was a cold game. When you bought a beer, the foam was frozen by the time you made it back to your seat. Packers played like shit. That was the first time I got the feeling that Brett didn't want to be playing football in the cold.

I agree with you on the best memory being the Cardinals knocking the Vikes out. There are SOOOOOOOO many.

I also remember as a high school student, I went to the Packers vs Saints game at the Milwaukee stadium where Packers won and Jerry Tagge ran a QB option play where he kept it around the right side for a 40+ yard gain and sealed a victory.

Reggie White Sacking Drew Bledsoe 3 times in the superbowl in the 4th quarter on consecutive plays has to rate right up there.

Negative memories... Not as many but there are a few... Terrell Owens TD pass in the playoffs in 98 which came after a Jerry Rice fumble that was ruled not a fumble when it clearly was. Death of Reggie White, the 4th and 26(on the same play as the OWENS TD), and the Favre fiasco are my least favorite memories.

Walter Stanley returning the punt for a TD to beat the Lions on Thanksgiving back in 1986 is my best memory.

4th and 26 is the worst.

My wife loves the Chester Marco TD against the Bears to end the game. Da Bears blocked the FG. The ball bounced right to Chester. He "ran" (I have seen linemen who were quicker.) behind a wall of blockers around the left side and into the end zone. He was mobbed by the team but still had 2 hands on the ball. No one took that away from him.

My favorite memory was October 14, 1996, when Chris Jackie hit a field goal to beat the 49ers in overtime. That was in the middle of the season, but I thought they could win the superbowl after that.

My worst memory was only four games later, when the Cowboys beat the Packers 21-6. Not three touchdowns. SEVEN field goals. It was like someone killing you with a nail file. I already couldn't stand the Cowboys, and after that, my dislike for them elevated to a level I didn't realize was possible.

Best: The 82yd OT pass vs Denver last year. I was actually there for that one.

Worst: 4th and 26. The INT vs the Giants has been permanently blocked from my memory so that one doesn't count.

Several of each. in no order:
Good:
1) Beating the Cardinals 41-16 in the Playoffs in '82. That was the first time we won a Playoff game since the 60s.
2) Beating the #1 D (and eventual SB winner) Redskins 48-47. When Mark Moseley, who NEVER misses FGs, missed the field goal and we went on to win that game by a point, it was amazing. This was hands down the best game ever played in any sport. No punts. All action.
3) Favre hitting Sterling Sharpe for the win over the Lions 28-24 in the Playoffs. You young ones had no idea how much this meant to someone who all they knew was the Packers sucking year after year and finally, we win a Playoff game, the only non-strike season Playoff win since the 60s.
4) Of course the SB win

Bad:
1) Getting knocked out of the Playoffs by the Cows in '82. That's when my hatred began.
2) Losing the SB. I never forgave Holmgren for that. We had a superior team, and should have blown them out. Also, I hated John Elway more than any other player in the NFL, and for him to get an SB win over our beloved Packers...
3) Punting on 4th and 1 from our 40 with 3 RBs who averaged 5+ YPC. I knew then and there that something bad would happen. Even at 4th and 26, I knew they'd pick it up, because we jinxed ourselves.

I always hated conservative playing. The #3 Bad cemented it. NEVER play conservative. The game's not over until you see a 4 in the Quarter and a 0:00 on the clock.

So many of both....where do i start?
Getting to meet many Packer players over the years........Starr, Nitschke, Favre.......and on and on it goes.
Winning 2 tickets to a Packer game, and it being the game where we whipped the Saints 52-3.
Being at the playoff win against the Seahawks in the snow last season.

Bad........the death of Ray Nitschke. He was such a nice guy.
Losing SB 32 when we SHOULD have whipped them.
Being at the NFC championship in 95 when we lost to the hated Cows.
I could list alot more too.

Bringing my youngest son to the Seahawks playoff game in the snow. I also met Cheeseey and Greg C that day.
Attending my 1st Packers game at old City Stadium.

I'm with ya. I'm only 20, so the memories from the SB win and seasons after I definitely remember, but didn't care quite as much as I would today, and they aren't too clear.

But I remember being at a Ravens game in Baltimore(visiting my Aunt & Uncle around Xmas) and watching that game at a tailgate party. And when McCown threw that TD. I went BANANAS! Everyone kinda raised their eyebrow and chuckled. But I didn't care, the Viqueens lost, and the Pack were going to the Playoffs.

But my favorite memory has to be between The Al Harris Int, mostly because I live in the Seattle area and all my friends & family root for the Hawks. And when he raised that hand after picking that ball it was like, YEAHHH, Take that!
And the other being the Antonio Freeman Catch. I was in complete AWE. I didn't even take a second to notice that we won. So amazed by the play.

Worst: Losing to the Giants last year. Its still hurts thinking that we were that close. We were given all those missed field goals, and it felt like we were destined to win. Yet it didn't work. We couldn't do it. And for a second I literally wanted to just cry. Because I knew it wasn't going to happen. I collapsed inside when Favre threw that pick. My head dropped...and never to be raised for the rest of that day and actually for about a good week or so.
