Tuesday Newsday

A Wedding to Remember

Our favorite Green Bay Packer memory is the game played Sunday, November 16, 1941, at the old city stadium.

Mr and Mrs Robert Reif

We were married the 15th in Oshkosh and, knowing we were (and are) great Packer fans and had only the weekend off from work, my folks wrote and ordered tickets for the game – mentioning the wanted “good seats” because it was our honeymoon.

At halftime the public address announcer introduced us as newlyweds and Russ Winnie – the sports announcer for WTMJ in Milwaukee – set the microphone so that the radio listeners heard the announcement also.

It was a special time for us and an exciting game. Most importantly, the Packers beat the then Chicago Cardinals 17-13. The Cardinals became the St Louis Cardinals and are now the Phoenix Cardinals.

But the Green Bay Packers are still going strong and so are we. If you check the date you will see in 3 months we will have been married 52 years and are also still going strong.
