My husband came home with the biggest grin on his face after spending the day in Green Bay at Lambeau Field watching the Packers Raiders game. While I watched the Packer win on TV, all I could do was think of all the people who had Packers tickets to this game. Prior to the game you would think that this wouldn't be a "great" game given Favre's injury from the Packers Cowboys game coupled with the playoff picture looking pretty clear for the Packers, but fans experienced an AWESOME game filled with great plays on all sides of the field - offense, defense and special teams. Seeing the Packers have fun was so enjoyable, although I was a little worried when Mike McCarthy kept Favre in the game when the Packers held such a comfortable lead.
Brett Favre looked great. No obvious issues as far as his arm or shoulder goes. Speaking of looking great; have you seen the packers press conference after the game with Favre wearing his camouflage hat? Seriously. Wow. Few things beat a man in a nice suit and apparently one of them is a camo hat. Who knew?
It sure stunk to watch the score of the Detroit Lions Dallas Cowboys game at the bottom of my TV screen. Watch the lead slip, slip, slip away until finally the Cowboys eeaked out a win over the Lions. It was so close!! Yes, the Packers clinched the Division, but a Cowboys loss would have had them just a little bit closer to possibly hosting the NFC Division Championship game at Lambeau, if we would all be so lucky to even be playing in the game. Do you like the use of "we"?
And hey der guy, don't look now, but the Minnesota Vikings are trying to make something of their season. At minimum, it will give my friend to the north something to write about on his Minnesota Vikings blog. Of all the professional sports though, the NFL is the one which can change overnight, so I won't get too cocky about my NFC North Division Championship Green Bay Packers. No I won't.
