MILWAUKEE -- Wisconsin sports fans have a lot to celebrate after the Badgers defeated Michigan State this weekend and are headed to the Rose Bowl, and the Packers maintained their perfect record with a win over the New York Giants this weekend, along with clinching the division championship Sunday. Fans relishing in the excitement are eager to buy up Packers and Badgers gear, after an exciting Wisconsin sports weekend.
Boston Store at Bayshore Mall put out Badgers gear late Sunday afternoon. Carolyn Mushall was browsing and buying for her grandson, who is a Badgers fan. She says she's just glad there's not a Brewers playoff run right now! "Our hearts wouldn't handle it!" Mushall said.
Boston Store representatives say the Wisconsin sports gear is drawing customers into the store. Stanley Ferstadt was shopping for himself Monday, and says he was on the verge of hyperventilating during the weekend's games, with a late touchdown clinching the Badgers' trip back to the Rose Bowl, and a close Packers/Giants game Sunday afternoon.
The Badgers will take on the Oregon Ducks in Pasadena, Calif. January 2nd, while the Packers face the Oakland Raiders at Lambeau Field this Sunday at 3:15 p.m.
