Really fabulous show. Your father's memories from the 60's re how he became a Packers fan and his most memorable early memory remind me of my own experience. My experience is in about 1966 when I was 10 years old one weekday afternoon I picked up the local newspaper, for about the first time in my life, looked at the sports page and the Packers had the best record so I picked them as my favorite team and I've been a Packers fan ever since.

My most memorable early memory of the Packers is oddly extremely nondescript and pedestrian. I turned on the TV in about 1966 or so and the Packers were playing the less than mediocre Vikings. Fran Tarkenton in his prime scrambling days frustrated the Packers absolutely out of their collective gourd and defeated the otherwise outstanding Packers team. I recall the Packers kind of body language of "I just can't believe these guys actually beat us today".

I then read Jerry Kramer's wonderful book "Instant Replay" about 5 times in about 1969 or so and that really locked me in as a lifetime Packers fan.

I think I loved Paul Hornung's spirit and legend even more than his play, though I've always loved clutch performers and he was the ultimate magical performer in the clutch. You never saw fear in his eyes and I loved him for it, just like my all time favorite athlete, Joe Namath, just throwing the ball downfield is the metaphor for my life and I loved him for that as well. I think the two have the same spirit.

I was at that Vikings game. As much as one player can win a team game, Tarkenton did that day. I was reminded of that game watching Russell Wilson in last years playoff.. Thank goodness the result was different.

Amazing episode ladies!!!! It brought back many memories for me. I have been a Packer fan since the late 60's and I could very much relate to a lot of the stories that were told by your Dads. You have been such a wonderful addition to the Cheesehead TV family!!!

I was born in 1957. I couldn't believe how similar your dad and I are in how we feel about watching games. It is like I could have been your dad. Hope you both have a great fathers day.

Super reflective, eloquent, and humble dads! What a wonderful concept, and a treat to listen to. Thank you for sharing these special people in you lives. Love this podcast. p.s. J. Williams is my favorite too, for the same reasons Maggie's dad shared! Lofton, too!
