Thanksgiving Day Drippings

Upon further review...that headline doesn't sound so good after all...kind of disgusting, really. But anyway...

What are the things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day as fans of the Green Bay Packers?
  • That we are fans of the most-storied franchise in all of sports.
  • That our team plays in the best stadium in all of football: Lambeau Field.
  • That there are Packers fans all across the world with whom you can shout "Go Pack Go!"
  • That the Packers are a community-owned team, with no ego-maniacal owner to manipulate the fans, the players, or the city itself.
  • 13 World Championships...more than any other NFL franchise.
  • Curly Lambeau.
  • Vince Lombardi.
  • The Glory Years Packers.
  • The Lambeau Leap.
  • The reigning NFL MVP: Aaron Rodgers.
  • A great front office headed by Ted Thompson and coaching staff headed by Mike McCarthy.
  • Summer training camp at St. Norbert College since the days of Lombardi.
  • Green Bay, Wisconsin!
No doubt you can add your own. But please do so on your own time. This is my gig.

Oh, one more thing: I'm thankful for you and our other faithful readers.

Happy Thankgiving.

Go Pack Go!!!
