Happy New Year! You can call me Bang!

I have been a member of this community since March of 2005. I have experienced the highs and lows with most of you, only I did so without sharing my opinion...

That will probably change as and I look forward to getting involved in the chatter... (Remember the FA thread for Randy Moss that had more activity than anyone would have thought.

Your love of the Packers
When did you start following the Packers: 1989. Before '89 I was a huge 49ers fan thanks to the NFL Yearbook my Uncle in Columbus OH brought as a gift for me. I read that reference book front to back and became a huge Joe Montana fan because he led the league in TDs with 31. Don Majkowski made the Packers relevant again and I was in the right place at the right time to join the rest of the neighborhood in chanting "REGGIE!!!"
What made you become a fan: See above

Favorite current Packers: Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, Bahk, Jaire and Josh
All-time favorite Packers: Rodgers, Favre, Matthews, Reggie, Chuck Cecil, Charles Woodson

I have been to a few Packer games in CA (went to the Rams game this year) but I have never been to a game at Lambeau :(. I want to make a trip to Wisconsin next season, I have been there before but only in the summer. What are the best ways to go about buying tickets and what are some tips you would give for tailgating/general tips about watching the game?
