Now that we've all gone through our closets, wiped away tears of bad jersey purchases, and shared our memories of our favorite green and gold gear; we want to know what your best and worst memories are from any Packers game that you were able to attend live.

For me, the best memory would be a tie: My first visit to Lambeau Field with my grandpa in 1996 and my second visit with my grandpa and my mom in 2002.

In 1996, The Packers defeated Trent Dilfer and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13-7, my grandpa and I both bought a share of Packers' stock, and I bought my first cheesehead. In 2002, the Packers defeated the Carolina Panthers 17-14 after a Bubba Franks touchdown pass to Donald Driver, and a missed field goal by Shayne Graham on the final play of the game.

My worst memory happened last year at Lucas Oil Stadium. News had just broke about Chuck Pagano's cancer treatment, and I was not feeling confident about what the karma gods had in store. Then, the Packers jumped out to a 17-point lead, only to watch helplessly as the Colts marched back and won 30-27. I will say, Colts fans were much less obnoxious than Lions fans at Ford Field.

Did anyone make it to Dallas for Super Bowl XLV or brave the frozen tundra for the 2008 NFC Championship game? Hopefully this will turn into a thread of fond memories and not a therapy session. Come one and come all! Share your Packers memories!
