Here in Wisconsin we live by a couple things: Cheese, Brats, Beer and the Green Bay Packers. Through the past couple seasons we have witnessed the departure of arguablly one of the greatest NFL Quarterbacks of all-time, and the emergence of another that has the potential to show his own level of success here in Green Bay.

Brett Favre has brought some of the greatest moments and years the NFL has had, and up until two seasons ago, all of them with the Green and Gold. As a football fan though, this is something to cherish. Every fan lives for these rivalrys, and the intensity.

When Favre was introduced Sunday at Lambeau the crowd erupted in boo's. The best thing for the rivalry then preceeded - Favre controlled the first half, and showed poise in a hostile home he once played 16 seasons in. With a comeback-esk second half the Pack made the game interesting.

I am a Packer fan, but the way these two games between the Vikings and Packers have gone this is outstanding. We are seeing a rivalry like no other.

The Bad Guys: The Vikings - signed Ex-Packer Great, 7-1 on the season, 2 wins and solid games for Favre against the Packers. The Good Guys: The Packers - Young Quarterback, rebounding from a fli-flop legend who kept the franchise on their toes year-in and out, Booing the same legend at home and him controlling the game. I'm excited - hoping another Packers vs. Vikings again down the road.
