Lady Lambeau's thoughts on Sunday

Packers.

Bears.

NFC Championship.

We made it!

Before regular season even started, I thought we’d be here. I was at the first training camp practice when I saw Finley in person for the first time. My jaw dropped. Dude’s huge! I looked at my husband with wide eyes and said “Did you see that guy? He’s a beast!”. I noticed Shields’ speed, I watched Bishop blow up Quarless, I saw the quiet confidence in Rodgers, I giggled like a schoolgirl when I saw Driver. I love that guy. I left that practice certain we were going to have a season full of spectacular wins.

And then, regular season started. This wasn’t the team I saw in training camp. What happened? And THEN, the injuries. I watched, we all watched, as starter after starter got hurt. What was to come of our team, our season?

Almost as quickly as the players were going down new players were stepping up. Hope was renewed. We still have a team! Maybe we still have a shot! Can we do it?? Can we make it to the Su…Sup…nope, can’t say it either.

No doubt for most of us this Sunday will be all about football. No laundry, no running errands, no walking the dog. Just football. Packer football. Sure, it’s not the same team I saw in training camp, but does it matter? They’re still doing their job and doing it well. As we watch the Pack go up against Da Bears, no matter the outcome, we can keep our heads held high. We have a damn good team.

  • It’s the game of the century. The Green Bay Packers vs The Chicago Bears. Classic. Who would have thought heading into the season that it would be these two NFC rivals facing off with the chance to go to the Super Bowl! With Favre deciding to spend his time practicing various camera angles for his next victim (I mean sweetheart) Aaron Rodgers diligently spent his time perfecting his game while Cutler simply got lucky very often. read the rest of my comment at sportzooz.blogspot
