  • Splurge A Little

    ||Save up/work that extra hour/plan your budget||

  • Indulge

    ||life is short/don’t miss out on having the time/experience of your life/ tip—instead of indulging in materialism indulge in sports||

  • Treat Yourself

    ||your’re worth it people
    it’s ok to be selfish once in a while for your favorite sports team or sports dreams/ just tell people “hey this is my life and my sports bucket list.”||

  • Have Fun

    ||life is meant to be lived out to the fullest/be that person that inspires others to pursue their sports fans’ dreams|| 

  • Find Your Passion

    ||What teams/events/places do you love?
    whether that’s american football/english soccer/basketball/baseball/yankee stadium/lambeau field— pick a destination and sporting event that you have always wanted to experience||
    ….go experience and live out your dreams!

  • Invest In Your happiness

    ||every sports fan knows there is no better feeling than having your team win a huge game— go be with fans at a crazy jam packed stadium and create new memories||
    Don’t be that person that regrets not living out their sports dreams…

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin– The #4 jersey will forever belong to the American football quarterback Brett Favre at Lambeau Field as his number will be retired for the Packers franchise.

July 18th, 2015 marked a day for healing for the Packers community. Brett was officially inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame. 67,000 Packer fans stood in standing ovation for 4 minutes at Lambeau for their favorite No.4. Favre was humbled to tears by the brilliant turnout of loyal fans.

“I truly thank you,” Favre said to the fans.

Favre & cheesehead fans experienced an emotional roller coaster as the 1992-2007 quarterback (Favre) declared retirement in ’07’ yet decided to make another comeback into the NFL (Brett loves the game of American football and just wasn’t ready to give up his passion)…Favre  later played for the New York Jets (2008) and the Minnesota Vikings (2008-2010).

“I would think that everyone that watched me play knew that I was having fun. I was trying my very best to win every ball game. I was enjoying my teammates.”

“The way I’ve played the way I’ve answered questions and the way I dealt with my teammates and fans that it was genuine and real,” Favre said.

“There’s so many great games, so many great memories. To be able to share it with these people (Packer fans) is amazing. I have played elsewhere and there is nothing like this place. Where else can you get this many people in a stadium when there’s not a game? Nowhere. Only here.”

“Where can you get this many fans into a stadium when there is a game? Right here,” Favre said.

Although Favre’s number was retired Saturday, it won’t go up on the Lambeau Field façade until the Thanksgiving night game this year against the Chicago Bears. Favre is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame next year. Welcome home.


As a Packer fan and Favre fan, I couldn’t be more happier for Mr. Brett Favre. We love you man. Stay humble.

American Football…I think yes

Unitas. #8 Young. #4 Favre. #12 Brady. Staubach. #13 Marino. #12 Bradshaw. #18 Manning. #7 Elway. #16 Montana. #12 Rodgers.

For decades America has focused on the beautiful game of American Football. If you live in the U.S.A. it’s just football clear to the point.

Football is a way of life. It’s american culture. It builds character.

My first memory of football started when I was still in a toddler seat sitting next to my dad on the couch- we would watch Notre Dame Football games on Saturday’s as a tradition- turned out that it was one of the few things that made me calm and quiet-
Football tuned out to be an Ehr family tradition- following Green Bay Packer games on Sunday.

It’s hard to describe the sensation that football brings fans. In short it brings communities together to enjoy a common passion…football.

  • To- High school football games bringing thousands of fans in stands roaring and stomping – the band cheering on with cheerleaders on the sidelines- to coaches screaming their heads off at referees- young quarterbacks throwing hail marys while winning state titles- to young men feeling heartbroken after the senior year ends- nothing compares.
  • College football brings whole campuses, communities, student populations, organizations, alumni,  televised broadcasts, and tail-gating into a whole other dimension.
  • Super Fandom- Then you meet the head honchos. The big Kahuna’s. What I like to say- the NFL(National Football League). The NFL provides a network and atmosphere that welcomes fans from all cultures. The NFL’s history is rich in depth and is quite remarkable how the league has transformed over the years. The memorabilia-jerseys- accessories- marketing- commercials- fan base- way of life is an american story.
  • It’s rare to come across broadcaster’s and professionals in the NFL field who can agree on who the best teams are or best players- but– they can all agree that when National Televised Football games are in Green Bay, all the bias talk is out the window

  • Green Bay for those of you who don’t know is remarkably small in population- but FILLED with TRUE Packer fans. The city shuts down on game day- not a soul is walking about- thousands flood to Lambeau Field or to bars to watch the game. I’m a born and raised Packer fan since my whole family descended from the dairy land- the good old Wisconsin.
  • Little interesting fact about the Packers organization (coming across season tickets and even a single ticket can near from impossible; my dad signed up for the season ticket list 15 years ago and his number will be called up when he is 115. The expected waiting list today is 130 years. 
    Football is not just another sport in America. It’s a way of life- bondage- love- passion- dream- goal- hope.My friends,
    I hope that all of you can have a moment in life where a sport can bring you great joy and love that you can share with others.
