So you're a Green Bay Packers fan. Excellent.

The 13-time world champs are blazing into Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons on a eight-game winning streak; their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, is torching defenses with ruthless efficiency; they've even embedded megafans into the City Pages blogger ranks.

But you've got a problem: You're marooned in Minnesota, far away from your cheesehead kin. Plus, you're hopelessly sober. 

Fear not!
