aka Melinda is a die-hard Green Bay Packers Fan. Growing up in Oklahoma, in pre-cable days, you basically had two choices if you liked the NFL, you watched the Kansas City Chiefs, or the Dallas Cowboys. Her household was a Dallas Cowboys zone. Her father and older brother are still Cowboys fans today. She, however, chose a different path that started on January 16, 1994 during the NFC Divisional Playoff game. Cowboys vs Packers. She watched that game with every intention of rooting on the Cowboys to win and make yet another trip to the Superbowl. But something happened. It was as though she was watching the game through someone else’s eyes. The Cowboys got off to an early lead, getting some “Dallas Officiating”, (calls going only their way), while the Packers took it in stride and just seemed to play harder and with greater intensity. A few trick plays by Dallas followed by shear determination and more heart then she had ever seen by a professional football team, and she knew. She just fell in lovewith a football team! Melinda has been hooked ever since!
