KENOSHA - The Brat Stop is a Kenosha landmark just five minutes from the Wisconsin-Illinois border. In addition to brats and cheese it is known for everything green and gold, as well as blue and orange. Owner Jerry Rasmussen might be a Packers fan but he's never turned a Bears fan away.
"I don't care what color they wear as long as they bring the green," said Rasmussen.
The Brat Stop has been around for 50 years. When the Bears didn't sell out at Soldier Field and the games were blacked out fans would come up here to watch the games.
Rasmussen says typically he sees more Bears fans come in only because of his proximity to Illinois. But this weekend with Packers fans heading to Chicago the tide is turning.
"Usually it is 60 percent Bears fans and 40 percent Packers fans, but we're seeing more," said Rasmussen.
Customers Kim and Ken Sommerfeldt of nearby McHenry, Illinois, are split on Sunday's game. She roots for the Bears and he's a Packers faithful.
"Either way no matter who wins it's okay because we'll still have a Super Bowl party," the couple said.
And no matter who you root for, the Brat Stop might be your last Wisconsin stop to get your gear for the game, before getting into Illinois.

When is it work? When is it abuse? The line can sometimes be blurry, when it comes to dairy farmers dealing with cows. These questions have recently been raised, after video surfaced, showing animal abuse at a local dairy farm.
When your doctor prescribes medication, you assume it's safe, but some people don't realize how dangerous it can be, if it's abused. A group of local high school students helped make a movie to shine a light on the problem.
