So I just wrote about 1,300 words on the Green Bay Packers Monday Super Bowl XLV celebration, which was not a parade, at Lambeau Field. For those of you just joining us, the Packers are the team that knocked the Atlanta Falcons out of the playoffs, then got to play the Chicago Bears.â†µ
The Falcons could've beaten the Bears. Especially since that game would've been in the Georgia Dome, not Soldier Field. And especially since Jay Cutler might've had to play the entire game instead of being knocked out.â†µ
After that the Packers played the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Lombardi Trophy. The Falcons played the Steelers to overtime in week one, and would've entered Dallas as the healthier team. The Falcons could've beaten the Steelers.â†µ
So yeah, writing up Green Bay's Super Bowl celebration wasn't the funnest thing in the world. They have great fans, their players stay out of trouble, and their season pretty much deads injury luck as being an excuse for any team ever again. I wholeheartedly rooted for Green Bay, and I'd do so again.â†µ
But man. We'll get to do this here someday, won't we?
