For Packers fans, it’s always gameday.

Emily Rose F, Houston

I am a senior in high school and I graduate in May. Oct. 9th is my father's 45th birthday, and Oct. 14th is my mother's 45th birthday also. To celebrate their birthdays this year, they bought tickets to the Packers game in Houston. Until he met my mother, my dad was a die-hard Bears fan who was born and raised in Chicago.

My mom was a Packers fan, and has cheese running through her veins. Therefore, my dad tore up his Bears Fan Club card and converted to Green and Gold for the love of his life to be by his side. This is a picture of me a couple weeks before starting my senior year of high school with my parents at Lambeau Field for the Family Night scrimmage. We live in Texas, so a game at Lambeau Field is hard to make happen. The game in Houston was the perfect chance to see the Packers in full-out game mode.

The excellent match-up with their birthdays is just icing on top of the cake. Deep down, I wish I could spend their birthdays by their sides because this will be my last year to do so before I'm off to college, but this is just a moment that can't be passed up. Living with Cowboys fans and Texans fans behind every door isn’t easy, but it just makes us even more proud to be Shareholders of America's greatest football team, The Packers!
