The Packers Devastating Loss

My wife hates football. To the best of my knowledge she has never watched an entire game on TV. When I met her I had to explain to her that downs were something like "tries". Sunday evening I came home from church and told her that I was going to watch the Packers and the Giants. I must say that I really have not had a favorite football team since Jimmy Johnson left the Cowboys, but I have been pulling for the Pack since about December. As the game drew near to the end of regulation my wife joined me on the couch for the remainder of the excitement and by default was cheering on the hometown team. Oh the drama! When the Giant's kick went up and was good it only took one image of a Packer on the ground in defeat to send her over the edge. Before you know it she's sobbing in disappointment like she had tied her destiny to their success. It was so ridiculous I burst out laughing, to which Annie responded, "You wouldn't understand, you're not from Wisconsin!" I have never seen anything like this.

Does Annie have a cheesehead? Isn't that mandatory for Wisconsin born people?
