Packer fans relish win, look forward to next weekend

By Bonnie Shelton

WAUSAU (WAOW)--Packer fans are still riding high after Saturday's big win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Fans headed to local sports bars Sunday to watch other teams fight to move on in the playoffs, but that doesn't mean they left their green and gold at home.

At Mickey's Pizzeria and Billiards, employees and fans couldn't stop talking about the Packer's impressive win. "It was probably the craziest atmosphere ever for a Packer game," said Mickey's co-owner Jack Beilke.

Packer fan and part-time bartender Kim Schillinger agreed. "You could probably hear people screaming all the way down Grand."

 It's been a few years since Green Bay's made it this far and fans say that makes this season even more special.

"They're just coming on right now it seems like their peaking at the right time," said Beilke.

The Pack's ability to overcome injury and defeat throughout the season make it that much sweeter.

Fans said they won't be satisfied with one more game...they want Green Bay to go all the way to the Super bowl. Die-hard fans plan to wear their best Packer gear everyday until the season is over.

"I'm going wear it until the end...I need to go to the mall and get some more stuff," said Schillinger.
