    Sounds like a dangerous highway to me!

    I've been a teetotaler for about 20 years....

    At least, I would HOPE so.
    Yeah there is. I wish not, but everyone of those cities has a population of between 40,000 and just over 100,000 in Green Bay, and all of the cities are part of the Fox Valley. Packers are a religion unto itself in the Fox Valley and on Sundays when the Packers are playing, the streets are empty especially in Green Bay.

    I mean, who wouldn't want to watch Aaron Rodgers throw the football around a huge lot, making even the best defenses look silly.
    Thanks from BigLeRoy

    Last time Aaron Rodgers played out here in Denver, the Broncos defense made HIM look silly.

    Just sayin'.

    Last year I went to a Packer game. I drove up to Green Bay, no problem. However, going back the traffic was backed up all the way from Green Bay to Fond du lac. It took over 2 and half hours to get to my mom's house in Fond du lac when it usually only takes a little over an hour.

    I remember that game.

    That game was an anomaly, just sayin

    If anyone can win a game on his own it would be Rodgers.

    That doesn't surprise me at all based on my experience following the Thanksgiving Day 2015 game. Which was brutally cold and rainy and the Packers lost...but was still awesome!

    It is the snow and barbaric weather. I am surprised Cleveland didn't make the list. There is literally a bar on every corner. We have events like pub crawls everywhere. A party bus takes you to the area and you just go from bar to bar walking.

    Hey, I know that Aaron Rodgers is one of the best QBs, not just today, but in NFL history. But to call that game an 'anomaly' seems a bit odd, and gives zero credit to the Denver Broncos defense. That defense won Superbowl 50 for the Broncos just a few months later, limiting the Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton to 10 points, with their one touchdown being a gift touchdown from Aqib Talib committing two egregious and idiotic personal foul penalties. Had it not been for that, the Panthers would have only had a field goal.

    That was a historically good defense the Broncos had that year.

    Oh. For a moment, I thought you were nominating Cleveland for the 'Most Boring City in America' Award. Out here in Colorado, we call Cleveland 'the Mistake by the Lake'.

    Iowa seems to have a fair number of craft breweries:
