Title: Welcome to God's Country!
Post by: djkimmel on January 03, 2008, 01:03:52 PM
Well... this doesn't really go here, but once a year, I'm allowed to break my own rules... and a friend asked that I share this 'true story' with everyone ;D

"God's Country"!

John Madden was in Dallas to announce a football game one weekend when he noticed a special telephone near the Cowboys' bench. He asked QB Tony Romo what it was used for and was told it was a hotline to God. John asked if he could use it. Tony replied, 'Sure, but it will cost you $200. John scratched his head, then thought, what the heck, I could use some help picking games. He pulled out his wallet and paid $200. John's picks were perfect that week.

The next week, John was in Indianapolis when he noticed that same kind of phone on the Colts bench. He asked what the telephone was for and Manning told him, 'It's a hotline to God if you want to use it, it will cost you $500.' Recalling the previous week, John pulled out his wallet and made the call. John's picks were perfect again that week.

Last weekend, John was in Green Bay, when he noticed the same kind of telephone by the Packers' bench. He asked Brett Favre 'Is that the hotline to God?' Brett said, 'Yes, and if you want to use it, it will cost you 50 cents.' John looked incredulously at Brett and said, 'Wait a second, I just paid $200 in Dallas and $500 in Indianapolis to use the same phone to God! Why do the Packers only charge 50 cents?

Brett replied, 'Because in Wisconsin, it's a local call...

Welcome to God's Country.'. . . . . . .

You are not setting a very good example here Dan.  That's like me fishing the Hot Pond in March and then posting how many bass I caught............note the sarcasm.  But it is YOUR website so you just go right on ahead there ole buddy.  lol   :P 

Hopefully if all goes well, I will actually put a report in here.  Trying to plan a family camping/fishing trip for next summer and the Green Bay area northward was a consideration.  It was more of the lovely bride's idea.  And when she has an idea, it is a good idea to seriously look into it..........because when the bride is happy, everyone is happy.  When Dad is happy...........Who cares!!!!!.

Hey... I said I'm just posting for a friend... the only team I root for personally is Michigan Wolverines football.

I'd like to see some reports from Green Bay. Been there. interesting place to fish. Lots of smallies and other fish. We have some Wisconsin members, but they appear to be shy...?

Maybe those "cheeseheads" up there don't want us to find out how great Green Bay can be for fishing.  They maybe afraid that we would show up there in droves................like when they show up in droves to fish St. Clair.  I guess we will just have to find out for ourselves.  When that happens.............the secret will be out.

I don't know the reason... but a bunch of us have been over there and found out the fishing is good. Just don't run on the wrong side of the warning buoys!!!
