It's funny here in Cheeseland

February 5th, 2011 at 08:58 pm

I stopped at the grocery store yesterday, and everything you can possibly imagine tinted green and gold was indeed tinted green and gold: cookies, breads, chips, dips--there are special green and gold pepper packages, fruit trays--It's a little scary.

I stopped in again today (poor planning!) and it's almost all gone. Local stores are closing down for the game and even people who've never watched a football game all the way through are excited. News stations are showing scenes from bakeries featuring doughnuts with green and gold sprinkles. Maybe it's the long winter, but it's very funny.

I HATE to think about what it will be like at school on Monday if the Packers lose....

    Planning ahead for St. Patrick's, eh?

    Go Packers! If you need a high-class, lactose-intolerant potluck dish for the green and gold, I go for small boiled Yukon gold potatoes dressed with pesto.

    I grew up in Wisconsin in the 70s, after Vince Lombardi, when the Packers fielded some truly dreadful teams. We all survived. If they lose, Monday will be depressing, but by Tuesday adulthood will have set in. Smile And remind the downhearted that we really demolished the Cowboys this year, which to a Packer fan is almost as good as a Super Bowl win.
