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.

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.

My memory bank only goes back to '89.

Best:[ul]It has to be the game we beat the snot out of the 49ers in the '96 divisional playoffs when no one gave us a chance. We started the game off fast. I think it was Adam Walker got the ball slammed out by a perfect helmet to ball hit by Wayne Simmons and Craig Newsome took it to the house. --- since I now have this game on DVD, I might have to make a highlight video of it. --- [/ul]

Worst: [ul]It'd have to be the '94 Thanksgiving day game against the Cowboys. I'm not sure if Aikman was hurt during the game but I remember Jason Garrett torching the crap out of us. It was the worst because I was with tons of family who were dodging the Packers. Needless to say my father divorced himself from that poor excuse for a family! hah[/ul]

Thats how I feel with the 4th and 26. I still get the same sick feeling, if I think about that play and the way i felt after the game. For some reason last years playoff game doesnt effect me enough. Probably because it didnt suprise me that it happened. Not with Favre throwing the ball late in a close game lol. Its just that the 4th and 26 was so unexpected. Unbelievable.

My best Packer memory was brought about by a team member of the 98 49's.My Friend and I bet a 3 team parlay for a $1000,(My buddy had a great run betting baseball that season),taking GB,KC,and the over in the Denver/Niners game on Mon. Nite F-Ball.We won the first to games no problem.
It came down to the 4th quarter,bout 6 min left to go,game was in hand,can't remember for who.One of those typical out of reach games.No one was really going for a score.All we needed was 1 stinking point,Safety,Field Goal,TD.It didn't matter.All of a sudden someone stripped Elway on a sack and Kevin Greene picks it up and runs it back for a TD.Needless to say next to my son being born or the day I got married it was the happiest day of my life.We had just won $10,000.
I told you that story to tell you this one. We got to the end of the season.What to do what to do.Do we risk waiting for our second trip to the Superbowl or one of the other playoff games.Well we said screw it,after winning the first playoff game that season we ended up going to the N.F.C. Championship game in SanFran.
Needless to say it was the right choice that season.
About 8 years later,after learning how to surf the net,I was on Packers.com cruising the photo galleries and what to I find but this photo.
If you look over Favre's left shoulder you will see my friend Dave in the #4 jersey and me to the right in a blue and green jacket.Imagine our surprise.

Bad memories,Went to the Az game in 2003.Man I thought it was hot in Vegas. Pretty bad game.Tards pulled it out.I thought it was pretty smart to make us wear our Home Colors that day.Those dark greens really sucked in the heat.Well once again while surfing the photo galleries what do I find but this.Another photo of me with my Bro-in-Law at the game.Had great seats 4-5 rows right behind the Packers bench.If you look right above the N in Arizona on the banner there I am kinda turned sideways.My Bro-in-Law is right above the last A in Arizona with the tan/brown shirt and baseball hat.A bad memory because of the loss,but still a good day because I was at a Pack game.

Best: Super Bowl 31 :)
Worst: Super Bowl 32 :(

Almost worst: the 4th and 26 game. We were soooo good that year. We never should have lost that game - it never should have gone into overtime. I really think we would have won it all that year.
