What an awesome story! The photo puts the whole thing over the top! I would've been so nervous if I found myself in that position, afraid that if I had made eye contact with anyone they would know I didn't belong.

Brian, I was really quite moved by your interview of your dad. CheeseheadTV has grown over the years, from origins when most of its charm was the fact that it was by the fans for the fans. With the growth, has come professionalization. This is natural and appropriate. That said, I felt your joy and pride in your father and his memories. This brought back those early days of CheeseheadTV, when it felt as if you were hanging out with your friends, except your friends know EVERYTHING about the Packers. It was very much a late Christmas present. Thank you for it!
