Packers-Bears rivalry alive and well in Milwaukee

By Yona Gavino. CREATED Dec 28, 2013

MILWAUKEE -- Packers fans and Bears fans are obviously divided. And that's pretty clear at Classic Cutz barber shop, where there was plenty of banter.

The barbers there are so colorful, and so passionate about their teams. There was a lot of good-natured heckling about whose team would be victorious.

This lone Bears fan was in unfriendly territory at his barbershop. He tells TODAY’S TMJ4 he's not worried about Aaron Rodgers' return.

"Every time he touches the ball - hurt him, put him down. Give him pain!" wished Bears fan Kendel Howard.

Percy Walker is the only barber here who's not a Packer Backer. You can see from that sign, he's right in the heart of Packer country."

“There are a lot of Bears fans in Milwaukee,” expressed Walker.

His co-workers could barely contain their excitement. They'll all be watching the heated rivalry unfold.

"I was thinking of going by my co-worker and sprinkling some cheese on the snow just to let them know that the Packers are coming" laughed Packers fan Robert Evans.

His fellow Packer Backer shared his recipe for success over the rival team.

"We hunt Bears,” explained Packers fan Darcus Johnson. “We skin 'em, we eat 'em, we barbeque 'em, we fry 'em, That's how we prepare it."
