It's been a great run, but will a cleated shoe soon fall?
You can tell a Wisconsin sports fan by the change that's taken place over the last nine months. He smiles a lot. Refuses to change habits (or clothes). Hugs strangers. Reacts to fixing a leaky faucet by either a) giving himself a championship belt, or b) going into "Beast Mode." The last month has seen the bandwagon only pick up speed. The Brewers captured the division, the National League Division Series and Game 1 of the NL Championshp Series. The Packers won a Super Bowl in February, the sixth of an 11-game win streak that continued Sunday night. The Wisconsin Badgers football team is also unbeaten and a contender for the national title. And oh, yes, the Milwaukee Wave won their fifth league championship back in the spring and the …

Not everyone will be watching the Packers in the big game.
For the past two weeks there’s been only one thought on the minds of everyone in Wisconsin: Super Bowl XLV. Not even a blizzard could derail the emotions of Cheesehead nation this week. Now that the day is finally here, it’s finally time to settle in with our favorite food, drinks and friends and tune into the game, right? Unfortunately for some, unless Mother Nature has a second wave of snow fury up her sleeve, they’ll be stuck working during the big game. Tony Bertram, a manager at Best Buy, will be on duty Sunday night helping any customers that might take advantage of the less-crowded stores. “I’m alright with (working during the game),” Bertram said. “I’ll still get to see some of the game being here with fellow employees so there’s …
A look at the top stories from the week that was, including blizzard coverage, new features and Super Bowl preparation.
Another great week at Greenfield Patch. In fact, in terms of number of site visitors, it was our best week ever. I won’t bore you with the actual numbers, but let’s just say this: the people of Greenfield are starting to notice Patch, and we appreciate. Of course, this week we had a lot to talk about, starting with the big blizzard that brought Greenfield to a standstill. Schools were closed, the Common Council meeting was closed and the Greenfield Police Department responded to a record 300 calls in a 48-hour span. On a lighter note, we posted a photo gallery and video of people digging out. On Wednesday and Thursday, we unveiled a ton of new features that you can look forward to every week, highlighted by the debut of columnist Melanie O…

Mike Seavert, a Whitnall Middle School math teacher, is going to Sunday's Super Bowl and shared his thoughts with Greenfield Patch.
Mike Seavert, a Whitnall Middle School math teacher, loves his Green Bay Packers. He decorates his classroom in green and gold and teaches math problems that relate to football. He even had a Lambeau Field foam hat custom made for him to wear to games. He'll be wearing that hat at the Super Bowl in Dallas, and here's what he had to say about the game. And to see what Pittsburgh-area fans had to say on the Forest Hills-Regent Square Patch, click here.

Whitnall Middle School teacher Mike Seavert is about as big a Packers fan as you'll find.
Mike Seavert is not just a Green Bay Packers fan. He’s a fanatic. And on Sunday when he settles into his seat at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas while wearing his custom made Lambeau Field foam hat and a brat and cheese necklace, the Whitnall Middle School math teacher will be fulfilling a dream shared by countless people like him. He’ll be watching his beloved team playing for the NFL championship in the Super Bowl. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime trip,” said Seavert, a 2004 Packers Hall of Fame Finalist. “I’m very excited to go, excited to see Cowboys Stadium and just taking it all in.” Seavert has been a football fan his entire life and said he really kicked his Packers fandom into high gear when he attended his first game at Lambeau Field about …
Whitnall Middle School students hoped to raise 10,000 pounds of food for the Hunger Task Force.
Before Super Sunday, there must be “Soup-er Friday.” Whitnall Middle School concluded its weeklong food drive for the Hunger Task Force on Friday morning with an event that turned into a mini Super Bowl prep rally. Students and teachers, nearly all clad in their Green Bay Packers gear, gathered in the cafeteria to collect the last of the donations and broke out into chants of “Go Pack, Go” for television cameras and news reporters. This is the third year the school has held the food drive. In 2009, the school collected 8,700 pounds of food and last year it collected 9,300. This year’s goal was to top 10,000. “Every year we try to set a goal of doing a little better than the year before,” said Mike Seavert, a middle school math teacher, who…
Patch vs. Patch is back, and this time Greenfield Patch is matched up with Forest Hills-Regent Square Patch in suburban Pittsburgh.
This week, we've linked up with David Cotey, the Local Editor of the Greenfield Patch for some friendly trash talk and such to build up to Sunday's big Super Bowl. I'm not sure if David knows how serious we are about football here in Pittsburgh. This is a drinking town with a football problem as many of you may have heard before. We incorporate our love of all things Steelers right up to our very last moments in life. My own mother's family broke out the rosaries for prayer. As a child, she remembers kneeling in front of the television during the Terry Bradshaw years. That said, there are plenty of reasons why the Steelers will win Sunday -- but here are three. 3 Reasons Why the Steelers will Win the Super Bowl: 1. Super Bowl Experience …

Chicken wings a popular menu item no matter how they are prepared.
Every Super Bowl party in Wisconsin should have chicken wings on the menu. That according to local grill masters and restaurant owners. And there’s no wrong way to make them. “Our wings are baked for about an hour and then deep friend for 2 ½ minutes,” said Shauna Snodie, manager of Famous Dave’s. We don’t bread them, unless they’re boneless.” At Wendt’s Pub and Grille, chef Dennis Weber makes his wings at home breaded with a fry crisp, but in the restaurant, they are deep fried without breading and then covered in sauce in a stainless steel bowl. “We’ve got a bunch of sauces,” Weber said. “Soy, ginger, barbeque, buffalo, Parmesan garlic – our most popular is buffalo.” Wendt’s will have a 50-cent wing special during the Super Bowl in …
