    Best place in the history of all things football to see a game.

    You’ve never been to Wisconsin have you?

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.
    Hey, I’m a Packer fan! Give me a break here.

    Well, I'm actually telling you that you shouldn't feel so bad your Packers had a lousy game against the Broncos that year. NOBODY scored many points against the Broncos that year. They won the Superbowl almost strictly on defense. They won the AFC Championship game by knocking Tom Brady to the ground about two dozen times, I think. That was not a fun game for Tom.

    These are NOT records to be proud of...

    1...Of the 10 metro areas with the highest excessive drinking rates, seven are in Wisconsin.

    2...All four U.S. metro areas with the highest excessive drinking rates are in Wisconsin.
    Thanks from BigLeRoy

    That made me laugh my head off, because I was familiar with Mount Vernon, Iowa. It was about 90 miles from my hometown, and I knew a girl who was attending college there. It was a college town without a single bar. A dry town. With a college. BORING!!!!!
    That's because the never went to Gibsonburg, OH (close to Toledo)

    We don't even need a football game. One nite it took me over 4 hours to go from Ventura County to San Clemente...in second gear, on the freeway. My left leg was very tired.

    Wisconsin and the upper Midwest take the cake here. See if your city rates.
