Anyway yesterday I watched and celebrated their victory as any good Wisconsin boy would: brats and beer done right - boiled in beer and onions and then grilled to juicy perfection.

What a year it is shaping up to be: my itinerant youth has made me a lifelong supporter of the SF Giants, the Green Bay Packers and the Trailblazers. Two championships so far this season, maybe the Blazers can shock the world!
By the way, I was morose at halftime, certain in the knowledge that the Steelers would come back and win. For my other team, Arsenal, managed to squander a 4-0 lead to Newcastle just the day before causing a fit of apoplexy. And it almost happened, but once again the Pack came through.
An interesting economics question about the value of spectator sports to cities is if Green Bay's remaining economy owes a lot to the team. By which I mean if people choose to live and start up businesses in Green Bay simply because of the presence of the Packers. Now that shipping on the Great Lakes is not such a big deal, the reasons for the existence of Green Bay Wisconsin are few.
