2010 has been quite the year for football in Wisconsin! A perfect year for a boy to be born. The UW Badgers played in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day and the Green Bay Packers beat the Steelers in Super Bowl 45!
Although we had several invitations to Super Bowl parties, Jim and I enjoyed a Sunday evening at home with Cole. Mom and Dad were supposed to come over for dinner and the game, but the flu destroyed those plans. Jim and I, along with Cole and Willie put on our Packer gear and we hunkered down to watch our first Super Bowl with Cole.
It was such an exciting game to watch. The Packers came out looking strong, but after three starters left the game with injuries at the half we were a little nervous. I texted my brothers in NC throughout the entire game...
As the seconds ticked off the game clock and the confetti flew over the field, Wisconsin was a buzz with Packer pride. We could fireworks going off and car horns being blown for hours after the game.
