Packers win on the road against the Giants

It is always a good feeling when you watch the home team crowd leaving the stands early as the football game is out of reach at the hands of the Green Bay Packers. That is what happened today with 4 minutes left in the 4thBrett Favre and the boys were on fire today. Sure, it was a slower first half, but the drives down field and the turnovers in the second half more than made up for it. And did you happen to catch the quantity of close up shots of #4? Like the salt and pepper hair, Brett. Very Nice.

Back to the game. It first appeared that it would be another nail biter as both the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers missed their first opportunities to put points on the board, missing field goals. There were a few dropped passes by the Packers, but overall the team played well and benefited from what looked like a lethargic, didn't-come-to-play Giants team. Final score: Packers 35, Giants 13.

The Green Bay Packers have now a week to rest to prepare for the San Diego Chargers visit to Lambeau Field on Sunday, September 23. It is early, but can we book a few rooms for February? Cancellation Policy????

Just WHO were those guys and what did they do with our Packer team?

Unfortunately, living in the land of the somewhat pathetic enemy, I didn't get to see the game, but was reduced to hearing it on a scratchy AM radio. Sort of reminded me of my early days, when to see the Packers any more than four times a season was a HUGE treat.
After hearing the fist half, I was indeed a little down on the boys in the yellow hats. However as the second half began, I was recaptured by the magic that is Packers football. What good job is done by those radio commentators of painting the picture of the action. While Wayne and Larry are no Jim and Max, I have to once again say that the Packers are fortunate to have such talented and fair-handed radio guys (as opposed to the PA and whoever does the Queens' radio crap).
In any event kudos to those in the historic (and quite lovely) Green and Gold, and to those players who stepped up their games to help ol' #4 leapfrog Marino and Elway to become the winningest QB ever....

Bring on the 'Bolts !!!
