The closest I come is going to grad school with I think three people from the cheese state - one from Green Bay, one from Madison and one from Milwaukee.
My "best" anecdote involves the 1994 NFC playoffs. I, a Lions fan, had to watch the Lions-Pack game with a room full of Packers fan.
Yes, that was the game when Barry got negative yardage rushing.
I shudder to think about it.
"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
Here's what I'm really curious about: why does everyone from The Wisconson have a messed-up nickname? My boss' two best friends are named, to his knowlege, Butthead and Snotnose. He's also told me stories about people named Sniffer, The Goat and Bushy.
I was born in St. Louis, moved to Green Bay when I was 2, then to Miami, FL when I was 8, then to Satellite Beach (central FL on the east coast) at age 9. Now I am a student in Gainesville, but I actually hope to move back to the region after graduation. It's quite a nice place.
EDIT: If I can get used to that damn cold weather again. Florida sunshine rules.

Caring is the first step towards disappointment.
Culver's has already begun it's spread outward from Cheese Country, as I have it as a regular stop on my way to my favorite gambling boat here in IL. Never knew it was a Wisconsin import though. Oh well, means at least one good thing came from that God-forsaken place. *is required to be smug about WI being from IL*
I got absolutely polluted one weekend back in 1986 in Madison - got some friends that lived in Fon du Lac for a few years after they got married but they moved to Minneapolis - had a frat brother in college in vermont from Racine - and my boss in NYC is on the waiting list for Packers season tix

We did have something similar not that long ago. This thread (The W) from Spring 2007 began with a link to a "Name All Fifty States" challenge, but Post #27 (by JayJayDean) introduced a link to a challenge to name all 192 U.N.
