No, really, I'm going to be a resident of Wisconsin. Making me an official Cheesehead once again.
You heard it here first, folks. I'm packing my life up and moving to Milwaukee. Let me tell you that I just packed my life up and LEFT Milwaukee 6 short years ago. It's cool though, we don't have that much stuff...we are just 2 people. My husband, JT, was offered and accepted a job in Milwaukee just this past weekend (after an intense 3 week interview process).
So, what does moving to Milwaukee mean for me from a sports perspective? We all know that I'm a GB Packers fan. The good news is, so is everyone in Milwaukee. Except for my Father-in-Law and JT's oldest brother. Other than that, I'm 99% sure that everyone loves the Packers. It's like a requirement or something. This means bigger and better Packer parties. Longer and more intense Packer discussions. Greener and Golder lawn decorations. AND....I can finally buy beer on Sunday's again. Oh, how sweet it is!
Milwaukee is also home to the Brewers and Bucks. I'm a MN Twins girl myself, but when your husbands entire family worships the Brewers and still calls Miller Park by it's former name of County Stadium on occasion, it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement. In fact, I do believe I've been to at least one Brewer's game every summer since moving out of Milwaukee 6 years ago. Also, I think my 10 year old niece has been on the floor of the Bradley Center twice in the last year.
Basically, the people I'll now be surrounded by (my husbands family) are much bigger sports fans than the people I am currently surrounded by (my family and our MN friends), which can only lead to more fodder for the blog! The job my husband will be starting in 2 short weeks also has a sports aspect to it. One of the products they make are mascot costumes, how cool is that! They also have many sports teams and leagues as clients. I'm not going to lie, I'm hoping one of the perks of this new job is tickets to games.
Off I go into the land of beer and cheese....mmmmm......beer.
p.s. Did you hear my favorite Packer, Donald Driver, is going to be on Dancing with the Stars? I've never watched the show, but if Double D is going to be shakin' his groove thing you better believe I'll be tuning in.
p.p.s. As requested by Allyson....I got the nickname Kentucky when one of my husbands good friends couldn't remember exactly how to pronounce my last name. He referred to me as "Cathy Honey Kentucky or however you say it". So I was known as Honey Kentucky....then Kentucky...then Kentuck. Then it just sort of fizzled out. But, Kentucky now holds a special place in my heart and I always pick them to go far in the tournament.
