It's Super Bowl 45 time for the Green Bay Packers! God bless em all. The Packers just knocked off their rival the Chicago Bears today. I'm not a Packer or Bear fan, I'm just a fan of football. I've said it over and over again. I prefer the college game but still love to follow the NFL.
This is the 5th time for the Packers to get to the Super Bowl. They have won 3 and lost 1 so far. Along the way, Bart Starr won the first two Super Bowl for the Pack. Then came years of futility. Years and years of nothing but heartache. Then comes a man out of Southern Mississippi. His name is Brett Favre.
Favre was a back up quarterback in Atlanta when he was traded to Green Bay. We all know what Favre did while he was in Green Bay. He broke every record possible while playing there. Brett wins a Super Bowl. Brett loses a Super Bowl. It happens. Brett tore up the NFL for almost 20 years. He did things that kids can only dream about. I can honestly say that I have never ever seen a better NFL quarterback that ever played.
Then a few years back Green Bay drafts this kid named Aaron Rodgers out of the University of California. He's a great college qb but can he take care of business at the pro level? Brett does his thing for a year and the next thing you know the Packers front office says it's time for Brett to hit the road. He's traded to the New York Jets (where he shows his wiener to a hot chick who works in the front office!) Brett does ok. Then he signs with the Minnesota Vikings. A true rival of the Packers! Brett plays some of the best ball he's ever played! Rodgers is plugging along and doing pretty damn good. He's just under the radar is all
Then the 2010-2011 season comes along. Brett goes along with business in Minnesota and Aaron goes along with business in Green Bay. Brett implodes and decides to retire for the umpteenth time. Along the way Rodgers takes his team to the Super Bowl with some flair and attitude. Nice win Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers! Who the fuck is Brett Favre?
