Die-hard Packers fan takes wife's name to become a "Packer"

Wawautosa native Ryan Holtan-Murphy is such a huge Packers fan that when he got married last weekend, he took his wife's last name so he could become Ryan Packer.  His wife is Marie Packer and she grew up in Michigan where it was no big deal to be named "Packer."  The couple actually met in Madison but now live in Chicago and got married there.  

Ryan says he didn't know her last name until he was already dating her.  When he starts to talk about "Aaron" and "Brett," he's discussing names for their first baby (as in Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre.)
