    Jim Becker sold his blood for years to help pay for his season tickets to Green Bay games. Turns out his way of financing his devotion saved his life.


    Reporting from Racine, Wis. —
    We laugh at sports fans who treat their teams like a life-and-death proposition.

    We don't laugh at Jim Becker.

    Becker might not be alive today to cheer on his beloved Green Bay Packers if he did not bleed for them. Literally.

    That is a great story! Hopefully in the future Houston fans will have a history to be proud of.
