Sunday afternoon, while many of us were watching the Packer game, an incident occurred at Mayfair Mall. Depending on the reports you've heard or read, it's been called a "melee" and even "mayhem." Based on the little I know, it does sound somewhat scary. Apparently, a gun was fired in the parking lot, there was some chaos and confusion inside the mall and Mayfair ended up closing 20 minutes early. Here is the most recent report that I could find on the incident.
I’d imagine that it would be pretty hard not to know that there’s a HUGE Packer game coming up this Sunday. As a Chicago native/converted Cheesehead, the fact that the Packers and Bears are playing each other for the right to go to the Super Bowl seems monumental. Almost like a Super Bowl before the Super Bowl.
My friend Randy, born and bred in Green Bay, and now raising his own family up there, has written a song to cheer the Packers on in the Super Bowl. It's called Rock to the Big Game and it's a cute little ditty! He also created a Packers' fan video to go along with it. You can see the video here:
