A Packers 2012

Happy 2012 from Packers Nation (Wesley, Sweet Pea, Hattie, Hootie and me)

I rejoined writing.com (still the same username and account) and today I completed a prompt that I had to write about why 2011 will be better than 2012 (it had to be fiction). So, I went with this... it's both, but more a hope that I want to happen:

"Clay! Clay!" I exclaim.
"Hi!" Clay Matthews responds.
"I have been your fan since 2010. Packers since 2009!" I am being a total fan girl, but I don't care. My goal had been saving up to come back to Green Bay all year (and a 900 mile trip from Philadelphia to Green Bay can be expensive depending on the whims of gas moguls and the airlines). And I wrote to Chad without Larry's help-- he might be Chad's brother-in-law, but an ex-coworker of dad; he might not be willing to help.

"Can I get a picture with you?" I am nervous, but giddy that I think my words run together. 
"Sure," Clay responds sweetly. I hand my camera, excitedly, to the person closest to me. As I pose, I hug Clay-- the photo is taken. Yeah, my friends are gonna be jealous and this is a dream come true!
