Leonard Blank is a diehard Green Bay Packers fan. Y Acosta, who co-owns the Lodi bar The Stadium with Blank, lives for the Chicago Bears. Despite loving rival teams, the two men are best friends. When the Packers and the Bears collided in the NFC Championship two weeks ago, Blank came away with bragging rights. Both men, however, came out winners as they are headed to Dallas to see the Packers take on the Pittsburgh Steelers live and in person in Super Bowl XLV on Sunday.

Their story is one of many local connections to the Super Bowl, which includes a resident with family ties to a Packers player, and countless proud Cheeseheads and Terrible Towel-wavers.
