Ha. 60 years ago it would have been Dallas vs Dallas. But one was National Football League, the Dallas Cowboys. The other was the Dallas Texans of the American Football League. But they didn't play each other back then and there was no Super Bowl.Can't wait to see them beat the Chiefs in the Super Bowl! Epic battle of Cowboys and Indians!
May your plan fail. Hope the packers loose in the second round, or even this weekend. I was 10. I know I'd seen parts of other games. I remember listening to the 66 championship at the Cotton Bowl on the radio non the way to my grandparents house in Irving. But the first game I ever remember watching on TV was the Ice Bowl. I remember my dad and uncles excitement when the Cowboys took the lead.Was watching the NFL network Saturday morning (after midnight) and they had the Ice Bowl special that was done by Don Meredith's son. Although I am a (1) Lifelong Packer Fan (2) Packers Shareholder and (3) Packers Season ticket holder, having grown up about 40 miles from Green Bay (11 years old when the Ice Bowl was played), I really enjoyed the special and the look, primarily from the Cowboys point of view. Then to wake up the next morning and learn Dan Reeves, who threw the pass that gave the Cowboys the lead, passed away was a sad reminder that Father Time is unbeaten in the game of life. By the way, I wasn't at the game.
But tonight's NBC broadcast had a shot of an old lady (82) who has attended EVERY Packer game since 1957 (when Lambeau, then City Stadium) was built. You'd think that's easy, she's got season tickets. But the Packers have two groups of season ticket holders, the Green package (one preseason, six regular season games, and first shot at the playoffs, which I have) and the Gold package (one preseason game, two regular season games -- the 2nd and 5th of the season). That goes back to the days when the Packers played games in Milwaukee each year. When that ended (around 1989), the Milwaukee season ticket holders were given the opportunity to buy the Gold package in Green Bay.
If all goes to plan, I expect to be in Green Bay in four weeks (Jan. 30) for the NFC Championship.
