Sorry for the delay folks. As many of you already know, I’ve been a bit under the weather since my return last Monday… Ok, that could be a tad understated. Actually, I’ve been sicker than hell. Sicker than I have been in a LONG time. I am 100% certain it has to do with the 5 different flights in 3 days that made me sick. Friggin airplanes… Flying Hot Zones if you ask me.
Anyway, I was totally healthy for the trip, which was the good thing. George and I had a great time. Although he was already sick, which put a slight damper on our late night carousing. The experience however was worth it. As always, click on the photos for bigger versions and you can view all my pictures here: Lambeau Pilgrimage
Saturday we flew out bright and early from Boise to Minneapolis. There, we caught the flight to Milwaukee. Picked up the rental car and were on our way.
This being my first time in Milwaukee, I was struck by one thing. Granted, I could only see what I could from the freeway, but all I saw were the following… Churches (there were spires EVERYWHERE), smokestacks, row houses and neighborhood bars. Very interesting. Especially to a guy who has spent his whole life in the west, where everything is new.
Yes, I know I haven’t blogged in a while. And yes, I do realize it is Boise State v Idaho week and I have yet to say a word. If you were in my shoes, you’d be well advised to keep it shut too. I’ll let my team do my talking for me tomorrow.
Anyway, in bigger news, George and I are heading to legendary Lambeau field tomorrow morning. Not only that, but we are going to see one of the tried and true NFL rivalries, Bears v Packers. In November. In Green Bay. How cool is that?
George, a big GB fan, is hyped beyond belief, even going to say he’s going to have to “roofie” himself Friday night so he can fall asleep. I am a little less excited than that, but I have never been to a “classic” stadium in any sport. Well, I guess you could say Dodger Stadium is a classic, and I’ve been there, but since most of the bigtime stadiums are back east, and I’ve never been east of North Dakota, I’ve never seen them.
We fly out to Milwaukee early Saturday and return late Monday. In between will be copious amounts of Shlitz, brats, and football. I bet even some cheese might be consumed, but I can’t be sure. We’ll both have our fancy cameras with us, so expect a lot of pictures.
At least the BSU game is on the ESPN gameplan service, meaning there is a chance that George and I can find a sports bar in GB and catch some, if not most, of the game. Of course, I’ll be recording it for a more intensive viewing upon my return.
So, until my return, may I leave you with a hearty “Go Broncos” and “Go Pack” and we’ll catch up next week.
There really isn’t much to say about this game. We killed them. It wasn’t close. Although, when we knocked another quarterback out of the game, the defense had a bit of a problem adjusting. Especially since it was a running QB to passing QB transition. But no matter. We still won by 35.
I did, however, get some more great shots with the new camera. Enjoy! View all of the images here, or view a few select ones below. Click on each one to go to the flickr page.
