Over the past 14ish years of Packer fandom, I’ve accumulated some stuff.

“Some” may not be a generous enough description. There’s also a host of other unnecessary things a few other items, but these two are possibly the nearest and dearest to my green and gold lovin’ heart:

Christmas 1998: The helmet ornament.

(I think the flag in his back pocket might be my favorite part.)

And of course…I wouldn’t be a real fan without one of these:

Christmas 2007: The cheesehead.

One of the weirdest traditions in all of sports, and I love it. It’s also a nice game time stress ball. It’s been launched across many a room in both the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.

(Let’s hope it’s the former and not the latter this weekend.)
