GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Packers fans are gearing up for the big NFC Championship Game showdown with the rival Chicago Bears.
The green & gold faithful are counting the seconds until kickoff for Sunday's big game. Some are so confident, they're already sizing up the Lombardi trophy.
"I think (the Packers) are going to the Super Bowl. I think they've got better chances in the Super Bowl than they do on Sunday -- and their chances on Sunday are great," one fan told 97.5/1360 News Talk WTAQ.
"We're having a Super Bowl party in downtown Green Bay in a couple of weeks," another fan said.
While he isn't getting that far ahead, Packers fan and Wisconsin Congressman Reid Ribble likes their chances.
"I'm a huge footbal fan and I'm anxious to watch the Green Bay Packers beat Chicago," Ribble said.
Ribble has even made a wager with Illinois Congressman Dan Lipinski. The losing congressman will wear a tie of the winning team one day when the House is in session. If the Packers win, Lipinski will deliver pizza from Chicago’s own Home Run Inn to Ribble’s office. Should the Bears win, Ribble will deliver bratwurst from Maplewood Meats and fried cheese curds from Scray’s Cheese.
