Now THIS is a badge you hope a police officer flashes

Yes, yes, I know. The Packer are continuing to prepare for Friday night's game against the Cardinals at Lambeau Field. And injuries are continuing to keep some young players on the sidelines who somehow have to find a way to get on the field and show what they can do: cornerback Davon House and running back Alex Green among them. Let's also not forget the scare that Mike Neal's leg injury has thrown into Packer fans everywhere. He says he's fine, and coach Mike McCarthy says he's day-to-day. But if he goes down, the Packers find themselves mighty thin at that defensive end spot. They are counting on Neal to replace Cullen Jenkins and he needs to stay healthy and on the field. Keep your fingers, toes, and eyes crossed, Packer fans!

But aside from these on-field matters, the gist of this post is something really cool happening with the Green Bay Police Department: officers can now purchase for their use, through next August, an optional badge that includes the Packers "G" logo and “Super Bowl Champions XLV” on its face.

Now, cool is that? It almost makes you want to be a member of the department just so you can get one of those badges, doesn't it? Or at the very least, see how soon one of them shows up on eBay.
