Sexy One-Liner

Biker Buddy and I spent Christmas Day night eating appetizers, downing some brew, and watching the Green Bay Packers vs. Cleveland Browns football game. We got on the subject of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his age. I thought 38, but picked up my smart phone, went to Google and clicked on the little microphone that allows voice to text, to confirm. As I was doing so, Biker Buddy made a comment to the effect of, “He (Rodgers) has moreRead more

One-Liner Wednesday: Restarted

“I hope @BikerChick57 heart has been restarted.” That was Dan’s tweet to me on Sunday when, for the second week in a row, my beloved Green Bay Packers won in overtime. By a hair. Considering that they were playing the 0-12 Cleveland Browns (now 0-13), the game should have been over with by the third quarter. But this is the way the season has been since quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone in mid October. His backupRead more

Life, Football & Dedication

“Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.” ~Vince Lombardi~ Yes, boys and girls, it’s football season. Stop rolling your eyes. The football pre-season is well underway and, on September 10th, my beloved Green Bay Packers start their regular season hosting the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field. The Aaron Rodgers #12 jersey is ready to go and I’m somewhat ready to suffer the anxiety that comes with wanting my team toRead more

Superstition: Weird or No?

“It’s only weird if it doesn’t work.” Remember the Bud Light commercials and this mantra? If not, take a peek at the video. As I wrote this post on Sunday, I had a short-sleeved Green Bay Packers #12 shirt over the top of a long-sleeved gold T-shirt. It’s been bringing the team luck the past few weeks; therefore, I continue to don the outfit so as not to cause a rip in the space/time/superstition continuum and cause the Packers toRead more

Football Photobombing

“Photobombing is the act of accidentally or purposely putting oneself into the view of a photograph, often in order to play a practical joke on the photographer or the subjects. Photobombing has received significant coverage since 2009. In discussing a “stingray photobomb” picture that went viral Andrea DenHoed suggests that the photobomb label “implies a narrative of surreptitious sabotage,” although in the sense of unintended and/or initially unnoticed people in the background of spoiled photographs, photobombs have existed for much of the history ofRead more

Football Sunday

Hey kids! It’s football Sunday! The Big Game! My beloved Green Bay Packers and Da Bears. It’s a historic rivalry that goes back in time, way back. The winner goes to the playoffs. The loser goes home. The game will be outside, in Chicago, with wind chill temps around 10 degrees. While the Packers have not had the best season, with many injuries and times of sloppy play, the fans received a huge gift this week. Dude! You’re back! AfterRead more

The Definition of “Messed Up”

From the Urban Dictionary: Messed Up To be wasted or drunk. To be beaten up badly. Something that is strange or weird. I’m going with definition #3, although I think the shoe is kind of cute. The Green Bay Packers are currently relying on their third string QB to win today’s game. He’s not doing well and it is very strange to not see Aaron Rodgers on the field. It’s been a weird season so far, with lots of playerRead more

Green Smoothie, Gold Sweater, Football Fan

It’s Green Bay Packer Sunday.  I always get in the spirit on Packer Sunday and today is no exception – my food is green and gold, my apparel is green and gold, my thoughts are green and gold. I will be headed to my friend Natasha’s home in a few minutes to root for my team. I have been a fan since I can remember, listening to the Packers on the radio during the Vince Lombardi era. (Yes, long time.)Read more
