WEST BEND -- A West Bend woman born the same year the Packers were founded
98-year-old Ida Motiff has gone to countless games as a season ticket holder.
"Must be at least a hundred. I always went to every game, every game," said Motiff.
Now she watches from her assisted living facility. She gave Packer fans some hope looking back on the decades there was a lull in wins.

"Just enjoy periods of it if they don't win. At least there were good parts," said Motiff.
Fond memories come to mind when the Packers played home games in Milwaukee.
"We sat behind the players, and the language - oh dear!" laughed Motiff.
She's now given her season tickets to her family to continue the love of football.
"All my life I've liked football my brother played football and that's where I really got it and of all the sports I really like football the best," said Motiff.
