Thoughts From an Owners Recliner - Packers vs Cardinals

Preseason Week 2: Packers vs. Cardinals

Well the thoughts I formed while watching this game did not actually occur with me sitting in a recliner.  I ended up watching this game with a much better view.  Here is what my view looked like:



I was lucky enough to marry into season tickets, so I have had a chance to go to at least one game every year since 1998, my personal record is 6 games in a single season.  I love watching replays from old games and thinking to myself, "I saw that first hand".  I have also saved the tickets from every game I have went to. Here is what this years tickets look like:



With the first string defense playing with a bend but don't break attitude, they gave up 2 field goals, which should be plenty when you consider the fire power that our offense possesses.  However, on this evening our offense got off to a slow start, and was not able to move the ball until they went into the two minute offense.  The result was a nice back shoulder throw for a touchdown from Rodgers to Jennings.

The offenses second touchdown came from rookie RB Alex Green, who drove in up the middle from 2 yards out, after catching a screen pass, allowing his blocking to develop, and making some nice moves to move the ball down to the 2.  There is an interesting back story on this guy, I suggest you check it out if you are in need of some inspiration.  In case you haven't heard anything about him here is a little tid bit, while in college he spent some time living in his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

The third touchdown was a spectacular 97 yard pass from Matt Flynn to Chastin West.  Backed up to the 3 yard line after a holding penalty on a punt return, West ran past the DB and Flynn lofted a perfect pass about 45 yards down field, hitting West in stride.  He was then able to out run the defense for the score, and still had enough energy for a pretty decent Lambeau Leap.  One of the best parts about this play was the veteran receivers lining up to congratulate him after he came off the field.  Even though these guys are competing for jobs, they get excited when one of them does something great.  It will be hard for West to make the team, he had a chance last year after returning a punt for a touchdown against the Colts in the preseason, but was released in the final cut down.  There are already 5 receivers on this team that are basically locks to make it, Jennings, Driver, Jones, Nelson, and Cobb.  Keeping 6 receivers seems like a lot, especially with the depth they also have at RB and TE.  I have read that the coaching staff has been impressed with Diondre Borel, however he didn't help himself by fumbling a kickoff and committing a false start penalty (after which he was removed from the game).

The final touchdown was scored by Kerry Taylor on a pass from Graham Harrell.  Harrell looked pretty good, his development will make the inevitable loss of Flynn a little more bearable.

The backup defense was able to hold on for the win.  Brandion Ross at first got beat on a big pass play, but made up for it by intercepting a pass in the endzone to kill the Cardinals rally.  The play of some of the young DBs may lead to the end of Pat Lee's run as a Packer.  He has been injured multiple years and never really developed as you would think a 2nd round draft pick should.  He played pretty good in the Super Bowl after being forced into action following the injuries to Woodson and Shields, but I wouldn't think playing well for one half of football would merit staying on the team, even if that game was the most important game of the year.

McCarthy got a little animated at times late in the game when some of the young guys missed some tackles or other assignments.  Hopefully the team gets even better this year on its way to a repeat.

I noticed that they have not yet put up the year for the 13th world championship, my guess is they are waiting to unveil this at the kickoff game against the Saints on September 8th.

RECIPE
Well since I wasn't at home I didn't make anything to eat.  But in preparation for next week here is an idea to try out.  This came from Food Network Magazine  Super Bowl related issue.

Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip:
8 oz softened cream cheese
2 cups sour cream
3 oz bacon bits
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 cup chopped onion

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine all ingredients in a bowl, place in a baking dish.  Cover and heat 25 to 30 minutes or until hot.  Serve with sliced french bread, crackers, and/or chips.

This sounded pretty good, I am going to make it for Fridays game.

TRIVIA
Congratulations to last weeks trivia winner Jacques R, who correctly identified the movie as "My Cousin Vinny".  They will receive a coupon for a free Wholly Guacamole product.

This weeks question revolves around a great Super Bowl XLV memory.  I recently re-watched the game on DVR, and really like this play because of the "teamwork" involved in causing it.  Which Packer player caused the pressure on Ben Roethlisberger leading to Nick Collins interception and touchdown, which put the Packers up 14-0?

Save Time and Effort: Try Healthy Dieting with Prepackaged Cuisine


Save Time and Effort: Try Healthy Dieting with Prepackaged Cuisine

Innovations have made it to the food industry. They come in the form of delivered
prepackaged meals; not the usual high calorie, high fat food, but those with nutritive
values required by the body. Meal planning used to be a time consuming and
demanding task, but not anymore. Although they cost more in dollars, prepackaged
meals also allow you to stick to your diet without hassle. Listed below are some of those
companies who are into this business.

5 Squares: This company stays true to its name by recommending the consumption of
five square meals a day as an effective way of burning more calories. Boasting of meals
free of additives, dairy, wheat and refined sugar, these are delivered to your front door
early in the morning. They also offer customized meal plans. The company takes into
consideration your likes and dislikes, taste preferences and health needs; even the
serving sizes can be customized.

The Whole Bite: After years of being on the go, three individuals found the answer to the
problem they faced a lot of times, the same predicament gripping neighbors and friends
who no longer have the luxury of time and energy required to prepare healthy meals.
Founded by three fitness buffs, The Whole Bite provides prepackaged foodstuff to
residents of Austin, Texas. Fresh, nutritionally balanced meals can be picked up at the
restaurant at minimum cost.

In The Zone Delivery: Chefs of this company prepare deliverable health foods which
adhere to the 40 percent carbohydrates: 30 percent proteins: 30 percent favorable
fats required daily intake. The plan includes three gourmet meals and two snacks. You
can also opt for the tailored meal plans. The components of the diet are based on your
nutritional requirements or you can select according to what you like or dislike. This
leaves the chef the job of making sure they are still nutritionally balanced.

Chefs Diet: If you are someone used to a lifestyle where staying in good form is a must
then this is the establishment for you. They claim to have the best weight loss diets with
their fresh ingredients and without you having to go hungry. Chefs Diet delivers hefty
portions of 3 nutritious meals, plus 2 delicious snacks every day all in keeping with the
40:30:30 carbs, fats and protein ratio.

Patronizing these companies has its positive side. It saves busy people a considerable

measure of time and sweat pondering what to prepare for the next meal, not to mention
the preparation phase which definitely burns up hours. However, you should not be
complacent, you need to do your part of scrutinizing every component of their meal
plans; checking if their ingredients are truly along the lines of nutritionally balanced
food. You should be conscious of what the health food industry brings to you or you
might be eating meals that are no better than those calorie rich take outs - only at higher
expense.

company that provides online budget meal planning services. Their goal is to
help families eat better and save money.

Mark your calendar for a great family friendly movie on 9/3: Game Time: Tackling the Past

I was able to watch an advaned screening of the movie
 Game Time: Tackling the Past. Tune into the TV premeire of Game Time: Tackling the Past on Saturday, September 3rd  on NBC at 8pmET/7pmCT.

Check out the official Family Movie Night website at http://bit.ly/nCZtG8
You can also like Family Movie Night on Facebook by following this link:  http://www.facebook.com/familymovienight


My husband and I watched Game Time: Tackling the Past while enjoying dinner together.  The movie started out with some home football movies.  There were a few flashbacks to when the main character was in high school football practice and games.  There are quite a few actors and actresses that you will recognize in the film.  (Catherine Hicks-the mom from 7th Heaven, Ryan McPartlin-'Awesome' from one of my favorite shows Chuck, Beau Bridges-a lot of shows and movies, Josh Braaten-Semi Pro and a few others).

There is family conflict and personal conflicts that are dealt with in the film.  There is also a love story and family values that are brought to the forefront of the movie when the father (Beau Bridges) falls ill.  There is conflict between the brothers (Ryan McPartlin and Josh Braaten) and coming to piece with an issue they had when younger.  Ryan McPartlin is a pro football player that has a bum knee and is having a difficult time playing.  When  his father falls ill he goes home (which he hasn't visited for a while).  That is when some family drama ensues as well as a little love story.
After some of the conflicts get resolved inside the family Ryan McPartlin's character still needs to do some soul searching and decide whether to return to professional football or settle down in the small town life of his youth.
If part of your family really enjoys sports they will enjoy the movie even if they aren't into the love story.
There was something for everyone.


This film really is family friendly, there are real life conflicts but they are dealt with calmly and reasonably.  There are no "harsh words" or innuendos.  It really is a movie you can watch together as a family.


So mark your calendar and pick up some popcorn and tune in on September 3rd to NBC at 8pmET/7pmCT.

Pay it Forward with U.S. Cellular and you could win too!


U.S. Cellular Reveals More Calling All Communities Enhancements
Campaign Features Bigger Prize and Potential Rewards for Supporting Milwaukee Schools
MILWAUKEE, Aug. 23, 2011 – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) today announced exciting enhancements to its third annual $1 million Calling All Communities campaign. In May, the company revealed that it was increasing the number of winners from 10 to 18 schools in the community-driven campaign that awards thousands of dollars to schools to enhance learning opportunities for students across the country. Today, U.S. Cellular announced that the school garnering the most votes will receive $150,000. The next 17 runners up will receive $50,000 each. Schools won’t be the only winners in this year’s campaign. Residents supporting Milwaukee schools will have more opportunities to vote and enjoy some cool rewards.
Between Sept. 9 and Oct. 6, anyone 18 years or older can visit any U.S. Cellular store and ask an associate for a code to vote for their favorite school at uscellular.com. Each online voting code gives people the opportunity to vote once daily until the campaign ends. The voting cards will feature a peel-off that gives thousands of lucky supporters a chance to cast two votes a day or be one of 18 people to win one year of free U.S. Cellular wireless service. In addition, 2,000 randomly-selected voters will be awarded $25 U.S. Cellular debit cards simply for supporting their schools.
“We wanted to reward more schools with much-needed funds and the people who work so hard to support them,” said Laurie Poellinger, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Wisconsin. “Each year, we’re amazed at the power of a few determined individuals who get the ball rolling in their community and the creativity of large and small schools across the country as they rally to win.”
Public and private schools, kindergarten through high school, are eligible to win a share of $1 million that can be used any way the schools see fit. Past champions have said that while the money was an educational boon for the schools, the campaign to win stimulated an equally rewarding and lasting sense of community.
No purchase is necessary and you don’t have to be a U.S. Cellular customer to vote. The winning schools will be announced in October and November. For more information about U.S. Cellular, its cutting-edge phone lineup, high-speed nationwide network and Calling All Communities, visituscellular.com or U.S. Cellular’s Facebook page.
