    As a Packers fan I just got a weird call

    My friends are both bears fans. They are getting married outside of soldier field the same day the Bears play the Vikings. So I will be at a game on there wedding day of two teams I hate. Who do I root for and how do the Bears fan react if you cheer against them? I don't want to be that guy. the obnoxious guy especially on there wedding day. It's there day. At the same time I hate the Bears and the Vikings. Should be fun though.

    Don't cheer for either. Just enjoy when Brett Text-a-lot gets lit up by Julius Peppers.

    Re: As a Packers fan I just got a weird call

    i have a similiar dilemma. i am getting dragged along to the iowa-wisky game this weekend because my wife has to be there for work. but at least the company is bringing the Hamm's for me.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: As a Packers fan I just got a weird call

    I've never been to a Bears Vikings game where there weren't at least two fights that I could see. The Vikings fans didn't always start the fights, but they are the only ones ever escorted from the stadium. If you have no allegiance, then either root for the bears or just enjoy the game and some beer.

    For the Record, I am a Vikings fan and it can get pretty brutal there if you aren't wearing the blue and orange. Most of my confrontations have been friendly in nature, but there is always one guy who wants to take it too far. Even the time I had my kids with me and only wore a Vikings hat. My wife had Bears stuff on, but I was constantly getting hot dog wrappers and pop corn thrown at me all day. And the language... It's definitely not a kid friendly atmosphere.

    The Badgers are just the Hawkeyes but to the Northeast, and they wear crimson and white.
