This is a guest post by my friend and fantasy football foe Brian Waters. By Brian Waters, CFP® Note: Nothing mentioned in this article is meant to be a recommendation for your investment portfolio.

I love reading Ask Vic, the daily Q&A column from Packers.com writer Vic Ketchman. He’s a self-proclaimed “dinosaur” of football, accustomed to the old ways of the game but trying to adjust to the new ones. One of his responses on Monday stuck out as essential reading for football fans everywhere, but especially the fanatics whose… Read more Football is Fun
There’s new quarterback drama in Green Bay this season that will likely quicken the blood flow through the cheese-clogged arteries of Packers fans like me. We are lucky that it does not involve the health status of Aaron Rodgers, who looks yet again ready to conquer the league. Rather, it involves whether Brett Favre will… Read more Getting Bretter
And I thought Wisconsin’s long, state-wide nightmare was over. A new documentary called Last Day At Lambeau, which chronicles the Brett Favre “retirement” saga of 2008, is set to be released in Madison next week and is sure to re-trigger some dormant emotions among Packers fans about the Ol’ Gunslinger himself. I haven’t see the film… Read more Last Day At Lambeau
[Article republished from January 2010] I can’t sit still when it’s down to the wire. Four minutes to go in the fourth, the Packers are driving for the game-tying score and I’m on my feet, pacing around my room. It’s been a wild shootout at the NFC Wild Card game: Green Bay’s young gun Aaron… Read more My Packers: The Emotional Tribalism Of Fandom
A point of pride here: Jason Wilde is the Packers beat writer for ESPNMilwaukee.com and a Twitter fiend and also hosts “The Aaron Rodgers Show” on Tuesdays. He solicits questions for Aaron on Twitter and today on a whim I submitted one. Turns out, he asked the future 2011 league MVP my question. What was… Read more What Is Aaron Rodgers?
I loved Brett, but he’s not the Packers’ quarterback any more. Congrats, Aaron Rodgers. I know you’ll do well.
Haven’t been on much—camp is keeping me busy. It is nice, though, to be able to unplug from the world for a while and not be able to check your email and keep up on the news even if you want to. Here’s a few thoughts on random stuff: —The Dark Knight was just amazing. I’m… Read more What’s Going On?
Published in the North Central Chronicle on March 28, 2008. February 3, 1997. My first Super Bowl. It was so exciting; the first game I remember seeing on television and my team was playing. It was my Green Bay Packers. And it was my Brett Favre. My family hosted the party. I was decked out in my… Read more Favre’s Retirement Ends Golden Age Of Quarterbacks
My first memory of Brett Favre was watching him win Super Bowl XXXI. My family hosted a huge party in our basement. I watched as he threw a long shot down the middle on an audible to Andre Rison for the first score, then to Antonio Freeman down the right sideline for a score.
