Why are Green Bay Packers fans the best in the NFL?
Because of shit like this.
Suffering from Hepatitis C, the 55-year-old Chicago resident would have died had he not received a liver transplant at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison on March 14, 2010.
[Peter] Cashman later discovered that the donor was Amy Larson, a 32-year-old Packers fan from Chippewa Falls, Wis., who died suddenly March 13 in Eau Claire.
Yeah, that’s right.
You know why?
Because we’re better than you. We don’t think of petty rivalries, we save lives.

“I know Bears fans that would probably say they’d give their organs to anybody but a Packers fan and I know Packers fans that would probably say the same thing about Bears fans,” Cashman said.
Actually, no. There’s a good chance we’ll say nobody will want my liver because I’m an alcoholic, but we’re not nearly that petty.
I’m a donor and this instance reminded me to do something important.
I just added a poorly-made asterisk to my license next to the donor symbol. On the back it says, “Don’t give shit to a a [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] fan or I will return from the grave and murder your family.”
